Don’t forget: It’s almost time to set your clocks back

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The time to fall back is near: On Sunday, Nov. 6, Daylight Saving Time for 2016 comes to an end at precisely 2 a.m. that morning.

Standard Time will return, and it will stick around until 2 a.m. on March 12, 2017.

We get an extra hour of sleep when 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m. on Nov. 6, and while some people don’t like losing the hour of afternoon daylight, that extra hour’s slumber has to be worth something.

To review:

Daylight Saving Time 2016 ends on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 a.m. Turn your clocks back one hour to 1 a.m.

Daylight Saving Time 2017 begins on Sunday, March 12 at 2 a.m. Turn your clocks forward one hour to 3 a.m.

Changing the clocks is always a good time to sync changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Fire safety officials recommend changing those batteries at least once a year and replacing the detectors every 10 years, even if they’re hard-wired.
