Fall Back Sunday, 2 a.m.

[CREDIT:NWS] Fall Back: Set your clocks back an hour — for Daylight Savings Time at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7.

Don’t forget to fall back tonight — set your clocks back an hour — to get in synch when Daylight Savings Time takes effect at 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Daylight Savings Time, said to have been the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin,  has been in use throughout much of the United States, Canada and Europe since World War I, according to NASA.gov.

While we’re still working off post-Halloween candy calories, most modern appliances — cell phones, alarm clocks, some TVs — switch the time automatically. But it’s still a good idea to change the times on other devices Saturday night before bedtime.

It’s also a good time to switch the batteries in smoke alarms and CO2 detectors, not all of which beep incessantly when they need new batteries.
