‘Fall back’ time again

Posted October 30, 2013 at 2:25 pm


Cooler weather is here to stay for a few months and the amount of daylight from sun up to sun down is already visibly shorter. In just a few days, the light in the daylight hours will become even shorter with the annual time change.

It’s once again the season to “fall back” in time, as many portions of the country revert from Daylight Saving Time to Central Standard Time. The change officially takes place at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, November 3. Once again, people can gain an extra hours sleep, but the daylight hours will also become noticeably shorter.

Readers are reminded to set their clocks and watches “back” one hour this weekend, either before retiring for bed Saturday night or first thing Sunday morning as standard time begins for just over a four-month period.

Central Daylight Savings Time (CDST) will return again the second Sunday in March 2014.
