US Clocks Go Back 1 Hour on Nov 1

Remember to reset your clocks!!!
KNN Staff

This past spring, the U.S. began its 2009 observance of Daylight Saving Time which resulted in longer days. Now, as the winter cycle draws nigh, the daily amount of sunlight hours is decreasing. This natural, seasonal change ushers in with it a later sunrise and an earlier sunset from now until next spring.

Although the Daylight Savings Time 'change' was created long ago to regulate natural time cycles, it has been made law by Congress, in modern times, throughout the US except for all Hawaii Islands and Arizona with the exception of the Navajo Nation which does observe DST.

In accordance with those laws, the time will "fall back" an hour to local standard time US time which "sprang forward" earlier this spring.

This year's Daylight Saving Time will officially end 2:00AM, on the first day (Sunday) of the 11th month (Nov. 1st or late Saturday night).

DST will re-commence next spring on March 14, 2010 and will end on November 7, 2010.

"And he shall think to change times and laws." - Dan.7:25
