This weekend is the end of Daylight Savings Time, so don’t forget to turn your clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night! An “extra” hour of sleep will hopefully make for a good start to your day on Sunday. At 2 am Sunday morning, November 7, 2010 it will become 1 am, allowing for the “extra” hour.

This Sunday is also a Baltimore Ravens home game against the Miami Dolphins, so hopefully the extra hour of sleep will help our team be well rested and play their best at gametime!

It also lets people either begin tailgating an hour earlier (though the lots still won’t open until 8 am), or take that extra time to get those last minute pre-game supplies.

Changing your clocks is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors. Though many newer homes are hardwired, older Towson homes are not, and need to be adjusted. Don’t wait until they start chirping — keep your family safe & change the batteries now!

Enjoy your extra hour on Sunday morning, November 7, 2010.

I plan to sleep a little extra so I can be ready to cheer on the Ravens!
