It's that time of year again! Time to gain that extra one hour of sleep you lost in the spring.
Come this Sunday morning, November 5 at 2:00am, Daylight Saving Time ends and we return to standard time. That means before you hit the sack Saturday night be sure to set your clocks back one hour.

Now, the good part of that is we get to sleep in a little longer, the bad part is - it gets darker earlier. The return to standard time means the sun will set before 5pm and rise just before 7am.

According to, in 2005 - President George HW Bush signed into law an energy bill (Energy Policy Act of 2005) that would extend DST by four weeks beginning in 2007. The bill called for Daylight Saving Time to begin on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November. It was on March 11, 2007 when the new law took effect.
