  • Remember to change those clocks back an hour.
Just a reminder to set those clocks that need changing back one hour tonight with daylight saving coming to an end at 2 a.m. Sunday.

That means this is also a good time to check out the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure those devices are working. So, enjoy that extra hour of sleep and some extra sunshine in the early morning.

Of course, not everyone is a fan of the ritual, including Journal contributor Barry Evans, who wrote about it in the column “That Time Again” back in 2014. Last year, California voters heartily passed Proposition 7, which allows state legislators to change daylight saving time with a two-thirds vote, subject to approval by the federal government.

Which means, for now at least, the time is still changing.
