Get ready: it’s almost time to “fall back.” Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 1st.
So remember to turn your clocks back an hour before you go to bed Saturday night October 31st–Halloween. This is the official start of shorter days; on November 1st, sunset will be around 4:59 p.m. MT.
This is also the time to do something that’s critical to your household’s safety: change the batteries in your smoke detector(s). (And don’t forget to press the Test button on the detector to make sure it’s working.)
So . . .
- Change your clock
- Change your batteries
- Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
