clock.jpgA couple of times a year, news orgs try to think of a way to make the end of Daylight Saving Time into a “story.” But I have more respect for you than that, and will just tell you that on Sunday, Daylight Saving Time will end at 2 AM, so you should set your clocks back one hour tonight.

That is, if you have any clocks that don’t do it for you! Where I live, time is told by my phone (which changes automatically). computer (same) TiVo (someone remind me of this post when the connection between networked time telling and premature aging is discovered) and my dog (she knows breakfast and dinner time COLD).

So, for y’all with clocks that aren’t somehow connected to a network or a wagging tail, move those hands back one hour before you hit the sack this evening, and grab that “extra” hour of sleep.
