Fall Back Time Change 2014 | FALL BACK! Daylight Savings Time Ends Sunday, November 2.

Nov 2, 2014

Clocks go back 1 hour on Sunday Folks!

Nov 2, 2014 – Daylight Saving Time Ends

Sunday, November 2, 2014, 2:00:00 AM clocks are turned backward 1 hour to
Sunday, November 2, 2014, 1:00:00 AM local standard time instead

Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier on Nov 2, 2014 than the day before.

Thankfully there will be more light in the morning to cross that crazy Mercier Bridge and around town in the darkness, especially since so many cars do not even bother to put their ‘real’ lights on, so we can see them safely from behind other than when they brake!
