Morning commutes will be darker next week.
Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4. Remember to set your clocks back one hour before you go to sleep on Saturday night.
Here's another suggestion: Safety authorities say the time shift serves as a convenient reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and/or carbon monoxide detectors.
Don't have a detector? Use your extra hour on Sunday to get one.
And yes, technically it's Daylight Saving Time with no "s," not "savings."
