Time to Turn the Clocks BACK – Standard Time Begins November 6, 2011

Real Estate Agent with RealtyQuest, Fairfield and New Haven County CT Real Estate RES.0781237

We go BACK to work, BACK to school, and BACK to reality.

It’s time to set the clocks, watches, timers, car clocks, etc. BACK one hour.  On Sunday, November 6 at 2 a.m. we go BACK to standard time.

Set everything BACK one hour or ‘fall behind’ (corny).

While you’re at it, use this time to improve the safety in your home:

  • Change smoke detectors if they’re more than 10 years old
  • Change carbon monoxide (CO) detectors if more than 5 years old
  • Change batteries in the smoke detectors
  • Change batteries in the carbon monoxide (CO) detectors
  • Prepare a disaster supply kit for your house (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets).

Enjoy the extra hour sleep.  It’s one night of the year I look forward to!

Good reminder about the time change. I like tieing the time change to thinking about smoke detectots and CO detectors. These detectors are invaluable but most forget all about them. Thanks for the blog..

Barbara, I know the official time to set the clocks back is 2:00 AM but I don't plan on being up at that time, so we have turned them back already :)
