Get ready to lose an hour of sleep Saturday night, when it’s time to move clocks ahead one hour to welcome the return of daylight saving time.
“The shift from standard to daylight saving time officially comes at 2 a.m. Sunday across much of the country,” the AP notes, addding: “Daylight will last longer into the evening, but take an hour longer to emerge in the morning.”
The report notes that the time change is not observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.
“Florida could eventually join that list if GOP Gov. Rick Scott signs the ‘Sunshine Protection Act’ passed this week and Congress goes along,” the report notes.
One of the traditions surrounding the time change is to consider installing fresh smoke detector batteries at this time.
Standard time will return Nov. 4.
