Reminder: Fall back this weekend

Time to regain that hour of sleep we all lost in the Spring as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend.

The National Conference of State Legislatures said, “State legislatures have considered at least 450 bills and resolutions in recent years to establish year-round daylight saving time as soon as federal law allows it. Much of the legislation would stop the disruption-causing, twice-yearly clock switching. Inherent in the debate is whether to enact either permanent standard time or permanent daylight time. The federal Uniform Time Act allows the former option but not the latter. A CBS News poll in March 2022 found that 46 percent of U.S. residents preferred daylight saving time all year round, 33 percent preferred standard time year-round and 21 percent were okay continuing to clock switch twice a year.”

Regardless of the conversations sparked by the twice yearly ritual of resetting clocks, we will fall back an hour at 2 a.m. (DST) this Sunday morning.
