Don't Forget to 'Fall Back' at 2 a.m.

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your 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.

Daylight Savings Time ends tonight--well, technically it's Sunday morning--when we all need to roll our clocks back an hour at 2 a.m. Those people who are out and about celebrating Halloween weekend and/or Dia de los Muertos (or just plain "It's Saturday, woohoo!") may take advantage of the extra hour to get in a few more sips before last call comes around for the second time that night, while some people will opt to use that extra hour for catching some extra Z's. No matter how you spend it, just make sure you check all your clocks before you have to be somewhere, lest you be the goof who shows up an hour early to work first thing Monday morning. The end of Daylight Time was shifted to the first Sunday in November (as opposed to the last Sunday in October) last year to help us save energy.
