Fall Back... Safely!

Don’t forget to set your clocks one hour back tonight as we end daylight saving time and move back to standard time. Get ready to greet the sun tomorrow as it rises a little earlier, but also remember that it'll get darker much earlier in the evening. 

A couple of facts about the time change from USA Today: it started during WWI as a way to conserve energy but didn’t become official until the 60s and the US Department of Transportation is in charge of time in our country. Which is ironic, since traffic always wastes lots and lots of it.

Here's the good news: most the bad stuff associated with the time changing – more accidents and heart attacks – happens mainly when we spring forward, not when we fall back. So enjoy your extra hour of sleep tonight!
