We fall back on November 5, 2017 at 2:00am in 2017!
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 6:12pm tonight, as of Sunday, November 5th, it will be at 5:01pm!
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 have hardwired smoke detectors, and some do not require batteries to operate their smoke detectors, many older Towson homes do 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 5th. I hope you are able to enjoy your “extra” hour that day – but be prepared for early darkness!
