Fall Back – When Does the Time Change in 2013?
Summer is wrapping up (though you wouldn’t know it by the temperature!). Kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter. It seems hard to believe, but it won’t be that much longer before we’ll be “falling back.” When exactly does the time change?
Daylight Savings Time will end in the United States at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 3. At that time clocks will “fall back” one hour. Of course that means the weekend will be just a little longer (good news), but it also means that some of us are bound to forget and end up missing the opportunity to get some extra sleep (bad news).
Daylight Savings Time is somewhat controversial. According to Discovery News, Daylight Savings Time was developed to help us conserve energy, but in modern times it doesn’t really appear to make much difference. A large number of people wish that we would just do away with it. What do you think?
