Time to turn the clock back this weekendPosted: Updated:
Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour on Saturday night. Most Americans can get a chance at an extra hour of sleep this weekend; clocks fall back to standard time. It's the last time this will happen in October.
Because of a law passed last year, daylight-saving time will start earlier and end later beginning in 2007. It will last from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. The clock change switches an hour of daylight from evening to morning. The official change occurs at 2am Sunday, though most folks will make the change before going to bed Saturday night.
Some states and territories don't observe daylight-saving time. Those are Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Daylight-saving time returns next March 11th.
Many fire departments encourage people to change the battery in their smoke detector when they change their clocks because Daylight Saving Time provides a convenient reminder.
