Hello One More Hour Of Sleep, Goodbye Daylight-Savings

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Despite atypical weather and a general Twilight Zone feeling about how time moves, it really is November and daylight-savings ends this Sunday at 2 a.m. in California. Translation: one additional hour of weekend party and/or sleep for your pretty head. Don't forget to turn your clock back.

Mom-like safety officials are smartly encouraging residents to take this opportunity to change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and to check evacuation flashlights and other emergency preparation needs. And change your oil. And pick up your clothes. And call home more often. Love you.
