Fall Backwards this weekend, set your clocks back

November 3rd, 2018 by WCBC Radio

It's one of the rites of autumn, along with pumpkin spice, football games and raking leaves: The end of daylight saving time, which will occur at 2:00 a.m. Sunday November 4.

So if you're sick of dark mornings on your way to school or work, it's your time to rise and shine. But if you dread driving home in the dark, you're out of luck for the next few months.

At 2:00 a.m. on the 4th – or the night before – the few analog clocks still around must "fall back" an hour, turning 1:59:59 a.m. into 1 a.m. Microwaves and ovens are on a short list of household appliances that will need a manual adjustment.
