Those 7 a.m. commutes will get darker before they get lighter. Officially, Daylight Saving Time doesn’t end for a couple more weeks – officially at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
But when it does you'll get an extra hour of sleep. (So much better than springing forward). Remember, you’ll “fall back” which means you get to 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 device are in working order.
You only get four months before you spring forward again. Daylight Saving time begins again on March 10, 2013.
