Time to turn those clocks back

Time to turn those clocks back

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

If Saturday night's Halloween partying leaves you feeling ghoulish, you'll have an extra hour to recover as Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday.

While residents of most of the country once turned their clocks back an hour on the last Sunday in October, the date was changed two years ago to the first Sunday in November.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 also extended Daylight Saving Time on the front end, starting in 2007, to begin on the second Sunday in March.

Cobb County Fire & Emergency Services spokeswoman Denell Boyd said this weekend is also a good time to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

More than 6,200 fire departments nationwide now participate in the "Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery"  program started 22 years ago by the International Association of Fire Chiefs to remind families to use Daylight Saving Time as a reminder to change detector batteries when changing clocks back to Standard Time.
