We fall back on November 3, 2013 at 2:00am in 2013!
Daylight Saving Time will come to an end and we will be back on Standard Time. This will mean it will be lighter earlier in the morning, but it also means that night will fall earlier as well. For example, sunset is at at 6:25pm tonight, as of Sunday, the 3rd, it will be at 5:03pm!
Firefighters tell us that it is a good idea when you change your clocks back to change the batteries in your smoke detectors. It is a good semi-annual reminder for safety.
Though many newer homes are hardwired, and do not require batteries to operate their smoke detectors, most older Towson homes are not, so it is a good thing for many in our area to do. Grab some 9-volt batteries and be safer today!
Don’t forget to Fall Back on November 3rd. I hope you are able to enjoy your “extra” hour that day – but be prepared for early darkness!Tags: Change Batteries in smoke detector, End Daylight Savings, Fall Back, Fall Back 2013, Fall back November 3, Towson, Towson homes
