Daylight Saving Time - Will You Remember to Change Clocks and Batteries in your Smoke Alarms

The United States and Canada will begin this year's Daylight Saving Time (DST) period on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013. Millions of people will have to turn their clocks one hour back from 2am (02:00) to 1am (01:00) local time.

The only good thing about the time change:

At 7:00ish I won't have to take my recycling down our long eerie drive way in the dark of the morning.

We're in the interface, and I don't want to leave it out over-night which would be an attractant for bears and other wildlife.

Given the "Bear Aware" program I don't understand the reasoning of the recycling Gods--scheduling such an early pickup where the night creatures roam???

Its Sunday Night.

Spring Ahead, Fall Back.

Daylight saving time Saturday night is wrong.

Technically you are right. Time officially change at 2:00 AM Sunday. However, a lot of us are asleep by then so we make a habit of changing the time prior to going to bed on Saturday evening.

Does that satisfy you?

fyi My grandmother could never get my name right...I answer pleasantly to anything nice. Being precious about one's title is better suited to those born to privilege and royalty.
