Time Change Fall 2011
November 4, 2011 by staff
Summer time (“spring forward”) began the second Sunday in March, when clocks are set ahead one hour. When we “fall” this weekend going back to standard time.
As a result, may appear as early darkness is descending, as our bodies adjust.
However, a forecast of sunny weekend with temperatures in the mid-50′s superior could help with the tedium or the return of affective disorders “sad” or seasonal. Temperatures are expected to arrive in mid-upper 60 for Monday and Tuesday.
The concept of daylight saving time dates back to centuries, and may have been previously suggested by Benjamin Franklin in 1784. The idea was that Americans value an extra hour of sunlight and energy (oil and candles at the time) could be preserved.
It was not until the First World War that the concept was put into use. The United States and Europe adopted DST to save energy for war production by taking advantage of last hours of daylight between April and October.
United States has had a tug of war with the idea. Daylight Saving Time was instituted and repealed, and the date has changed.
Now go back to standard time at 2 am on the first Sunday in November to set the clocks one hour back. For most people, that means putting the clocks on Saturday night before bedtime.
It’s a good reminder to check batteries in smoke detectors, and activate carbon monoxide detectors.
