Time to Fall Back 2008

This weekend we turn our clocks back an hour as we return to Standard Time.

When do we do this? Saturday night before going to bed or Sunday morning 2:00 a.m., whichever comes first.

Does this mean we get to spend an extra hour at our favorite bar? No, bars do not stop serving liquor at 2:00 a.m., but actually at 1:59 a.m., one minute before the clocks are set back one hour. Those clever lawmakers.

It is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detector(s). Some inexpensive detectors also need to be replaced completely about every five years. Dispose those old batteries and alarms properly.

For the correct time of the day, you can call the Department of Transportation at 1-900-410-TIME. There is a charge for the call.
