I have some great news to share! You’ll gain 1 hour of sleep tonight! At least you will if you get to bed on time.
It’s time to set your clocks back 1 hour before bed tonight. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. At that time, 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m.
Another noticeable impact of this time change will be sunrise and sunset. In Augusta, Sunday’s sunrise will occur at 6:51 a.m. Sunset will occur at 5:32 p.m. Yes, daylight hours are shortening through the winter solstice, which occurs a few days before Christmas. So you can credit both the time change and the angle of the sun for giving us more darkness to enjoy Christmas lights!
