Daylight Saving Time Ends

For those of you in North American jurisdictions that observe Daylight Saving Time, don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour this Saturday night! Official time change occurs at 2:00 a.m. local time on Sunday, November 6th.

Drivers beware!! After the time change this weekend the sun's location will shift and glare may affect you differently on your daily commute.

Cheers, Ralph
