Yawn: The Clock Strikes An Hour Early On Sunday
WASHINGTON (AP) – Watch out — it’s that time again; not a minute to spare.
Well, actually, there are 60 of them, meaning an earlier-than-usual rise-and-shine time Sunday.
At 2 a.m. local time Sunday, daylight saving time sends standard time to the bench until the fall.
Turn that clock ahead before slipping under the covers Saturday night. Don’t bemoan one night of 60 fewer minutes of sleep; there’s the promise of many months ahead with an extra hour of evening sunlight.
Not every place makes the switch. The exceptions are Hawaii, most of Arizona (Navajo Indian territories do observe the change), Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.
Standard time returns November 4. Two days later, it’s election time.
