So You Forgot to Set Your Clocks Back?

It's over. As of 2 a.m. Sunday, Daylight Savings Time is no more.

People of the Future (like say, later on Sunday): Daylight Savings Time ended at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012.

You were supposed to “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour. Did you?

Your electronic devices may have figured it out on their own. Many automatically adjust when Daylight Savings Time begins or ends.

But besides attending to clocks and electronics, it’s a good time to change smoke detector batteries and to check that those devices are in working order.

That wasn't the case in two-thirds of the Fridley homes that the Fridley Fire Department visited as part of a recent Fire Prevention Week promotion with Domino's pizza delivery. According to Fridley Fire Chief John Berg:

The Domino’s Fire Prevention Promotion went well but, the results were not good for the number of people with working detectors. The Firefighters went with Domino’s to six homes and only two had working smoke detectors. In two cases firefighters provided working smoke detectors and in the other two homes batteries in the some detectors were replaced by firefighters.

Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Savings Time.

But for the states and territories that do, Daylight Savings Time begins again on March 10, 2013.
