LINCOLNTON, N.C. - If you have a Smartphone you won’t have to worry about setting your clock back one hour Saturday night when you go to bed. But, if you still have an analog clock or watch you will have to manually set your timepiece.
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 4 and clocks will “fall back” to standard time.
There will be no need to turn over and hit that snooze button on Sunday morning because with the end of daylight saving time you will get that additional hour of sleep you have been missing since March. Unless you live in an area that doesn’t observe the time change like Hawaii and most of Arizona.
Also remember to make another change that could save your life - change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
Changing smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries at least once a year is one of the simplest, most effective ways to reduce these tragic deaths and injuries. In fact, a working smoke alarm nearly cuts in half the risk of dying in a home fire.
Remember that an alarm with a dead battery is just as bad as not having one because it gives residents a false sense of security. Firefighters agree that the most commonly cited cause of non-working smoke alarms is worn or missing batteries.
