Don't Forget to Turn Clocks Back for Nov. 6
It's Daylight Saving Time, and that means it's time to get a coveted extra hour of sleep.
It's the time of the year again. The days get shorter - much shorter - starting on Sunday, Nov. 6, when we recognize the end of Daylight Saving Time. Soon it will be dark by 4:30 p.m. and we'll all wonder what the heck we're thinking each year.
The clocks officially change at 2 a.m. local time, so roll your clocks back one hour before you hit the sack on Saturday.
The Wakefield Fire Department also recommends using this time as a reminder to check smoke alarms and change any dead batteries in the alarms.
Even though gaining an extra hour barely makes up for the excess of darkness soon to befall us every day from now until next spring, we should still all be grateful for what we get. Word on the street is, if you spell it "Daylight Savings Time" with an extra "s" - the grammar police will confiscate the extra hour. So spell it correctly and sleep in on Sunday!
