Daylight Saving Time Ends 11/3

Don't forget to roll your clocks back one hour at 2:00 am Sunday morning.

Favorite holiday of the year!


Don't forget to change your smoke alarm batteries this weekend as well...

People keep saying that, but aren't modern, up to code smoke detectors equipped with 10 year batteries? You shouldn't be changing them before that.

my house was built in 1999. the detectors have standard 9 volt batteries in them

Yes but it still is bad advice to give out, generally. Sounds good but needs clarification.

Good reminder to test your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

Actually, it is a reminder to change your clocks, at least the few that don't change automatically.

Can anyone give a legitimate reason we still do this?
I can't find one.


My niece lives in Surprise, AZ. They DON'T do DST. A few places don't. Plays hell with their tv schedules lol

Are there any clocks left to turn back? : )

My stupid stove doesn't know how to change its own clock, but my smart TV does... that's why I like it better.

We have to do the cars, my wristwatch, the stove, the microwave, the programmable thermostat and the water filtration equipment. Everything isn't automatic. LOL

How about that flip phone of yours? Does its clock have hands on it that you have to physically dial back? (-;

My watches do. I have to wind them constantly as well. :)

If we didn't, sunrise at the summer solstice would be at 4:30 in the morning. As a man with a 5-year old son who gets up at the crack of dawn every morning, that's reason enough for me (-;

Josh, the worst is having to spin through three days to get to March 1st, right?

LOL! My flip phone is automatic. My watch is an eco drive, so I don't have to wind it. I do have to manually change the date when necessary. I don't have to go through 24 hours to do it though. I just pull the pin one click out instead of two and that changes the date.

I just finally reprogrammed the lights on the driveway to come on earlier and now I guess I have to do it again tomorrow.....

Ben Franklin was joking when he suggested Daylight Saving Time

Was he also joking about the turkey?

70% of Americans want to end changing our clocks.

What say yea Hackettowners (and those who honor our website with their presence but not our towns with their corporal beings).

I like the time change. I say keep it as it is.

I could be wrong, but don’t farmers still benefit from DST?
For that reason, I am for it.

I would rather dodge deer in the PM darkness when I am wide awake driving home at 5p than in the AM darkness before we go to DST- at 6:30a half asleep.

And- let’s not forget- they already pushed it back one week into November and pulled it forward 2 weeks in March- so we really have 3 weeks less of DSTthan we used to.

More light at the end of day, no doubt about it.

I work in construction and daylight savings time helps especially in the early hrs when we can be seen working on the roads we like to see our familys.

LOVED it when that happened!

Just take the middle road, permanently adjust by 30 minutes ahead now. I understand the need for more light now, but in Spring we pay with sleep-deprived drivers...


This is a conversation twice a year.

I agree we should split this down the middle and call it quits.

Let us band together and get this going. Where do we start with this?

I really don't get why one hour affects people so much.
