Fall Back This Weekend to Standard Time

It’s almost time to reset the clocks that are not automatically changed by electronics, as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end at 2 a.m. Sunday.

The change to Standard Time also serves as a reminder to install new batteries in your NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio, smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors.

The US Senate unanimously approved The Sunshine Protection Act this spring, which would have kept the country on Daylight Saving Time year round, but the bill hasn’t passed in the US House. Meantime, The Washington Post reported Wednesday that some scientists say that daylight saving time throws people out of sync with solar time and is unhealthy.

Meanwhile, the publication Current Biology says that permanent daylight saving time would reduce the number of  collisions between deer and vehicles, saving both animal and human lives.
