Those morning commutes will get darker before they get lighter. Officially, Daylight Saving Time doesn’t end for a couple more weeks—at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Remember, you’ll “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour. Many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Saving Time begins or ends.
When you change your clocks in the fall and spring, it’s also a good time to change smoke detector batteries and check to make sure the devices are in working order.
"You can prevent tragedies simply by testing and maintaining your smoke alarms and practicing a fire escape plan," city of Cartersville spokesman Rebecca Bohlander and fire department officials say in Change Your Clocks and Change Your Batteries.
DST begins again on March 10, 2013.
