Roll Back the Clocks! - Time Change, The First Day of Fall and soon Winter!

Real Estate Agent with John R. Wood REALTORS

You may want to roll back your clock tonight before you go to bed!

Roll back the clocks, time to fall back, times are changing in real estate, daylight savingsIt seems like we just had the first day of Fall as I discussed in my blog The first day of Fall is not just a day!; the time change is goes into effect tonight and were all going to have to turn back our clocks 1 hour at 2AM on Sunday morning.  This week it was sooooo cold from the Northeast all the way down through the Bahamas it's hard to believe it's October.  It felt like a Winter day in February here in South Florida!

Daylight savings for 2008 will end this Sunday on November 2nd, 2008 at 2AM.  Really I think of it as Saturday night.  In any case, last year, congress signed a law enacting the new daylight savings time schedule effective from 2008 on. Daylight savings will now end on the first Sunday in November. Until last year, Daylight savings during the Fall used to end one week earlier on the last Sunday of October. The start of Daylight Savings was also changed from the first Sunday to April to the second Sunday in March. As a result of this change Daylight Savings is now one month longer than it used to be.

Arizona and Hawaii are the only two states in the US that do not observe Daylight Savings since Indiana recently passed a law implementing Daylight savings.

PS- The first official day of Winter begins December 21st, 2008 for the next 3 years.

Unless you are in Arizona and some other places of the US where there is no daylight time. Now we get the chance to readjust our thinking about where everyone else is time wise.
