Remember to 'Fall Back' November 3

 You know the old saying:  “Spring forward, fall back.”  It helps us to remember how Daylight Saving Time affects our clocks twice each year.

Mark your calendar now so you’ll remember to set back your clock by one hour on Sunday, November 3.

During Daylight Saving Time, which begins in the spring, clocks are turned forward an hour. When Daylight Saving Time ends in the fall, clocks are set back an hour and Standard Time resumes.

The present schedule is determined by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. In effect, the United States springs forward at 2:00 am on the second Sunday in March, and falls back at 2:00 am on the first Sunday in November.
