Daylight Saving Time is coming to an end early Sunday morning

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Leaves are changing colors, pumpkins are glowing and sweaters are back. You guessed it. Fall is here.

Fall brings the things that people love like football, pumpkin spice lattes and cooler weather, but do not not forget perhaps the best perk of all. That extra hour of sleep when the time changes.

Say goodbye to Daylight Saving Time (DST) as it is officially coming to an end on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 2:00 a.m.

The change back to Standard Time is effective at 2:00 a.m. and, thankfully, will automatically apply to your smartphones, tablets, and personal computers. But to help make sure you don’t arrive at church an hour before your pastor, reset your old-fashioned clocks before your head hits the pillow tonight.

Why the change? Blame Benjamin Franklin. With fewer daylight hours in Fall and Winter, he jokingly theorized in 1784 that the change would help Parisians save candles.

Put your extra hour to good use by changing smoke detector batteries, and drive carefully as you get used to sun glare during morning and late afternoon commutes.-
