Time to fall back

November 5, 2010

Daylight saving time is coming to an end. Time will revert back to standard time on Sunday, Nov. 7. All clocks will need to be set back one hour. The standard time to change clocks, according to the Daylight Saving Time Web site, is at 2 a.m. The 2 a.m. changeover was chosen to ensure as little disruption as possible. At this time, most people are at home and when train travel was a major factor, the fewest trains were running at this time. The early morning time also prevents the time change from changing days, which would happen if the change occurred at midnight or 1 a.m.
