Daylight Savings Time Ends

Yes, it is that time of year again, time to change those clocks. Did you know that daylight saving time started in 1918 in the United States? It was an idea brought to the attention of Benjamin Franklin who believed “early to bed and early to rise” according to David Prerau, author of the book Seize the Daylight: The Curious and Contentious Story of Daylight Saving Time. There are mixed feelings for many Americans about the usefulness of Daylight Saving Time, how do you feel about it? Give us your thoughts in the comment section below.

 

Also: It is a good idea, while changing your clocks that you also check your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. Checking these devices at both time changes will ensure that they are working properly and will be ready in the case of an emergency.
