Fall Back 2016

clock_fall_back_animated

It’s time we turn our clocks back an hour as we return to Standard Time, Sunday morning November 6 at 2:00 am.

Does this mean we get to spend an extra hour at our favorite bar? No, bars actually stop serving alcohol at 1:59 am, one minute before the clocks are set back one hour.

This is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
