Those 7:30 a.m. commutes are about to get a little brighter. Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Remember, you'll "fall back" by setting your clocks back one hour. Many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Saving Time begins or ends.
Of course, there are plenty of good ways to spend that extra hour on Sunday in Encinitas. You could catch the free concert at the Encinitas Library, cruise over to the Leucadia Farmers Market—or, with the forecast calling for sunny skies and a high of 81 degrees, it’ll be ideal conditions for lingering at the Self Realization Fellowship’s Meditation Gardens and the beach.
When you change your clocks in the fall and spring, it’s also a good time to change smoke detector batteries and check to make sure other devices are in working order.
Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time.
Daylight Saving Time begins again on March 10, 2013.
