AUGUSTA, Ga. – Times—they are a’changin’! Literally!
It’s almost time to”fall back!” If you have manual clocks or watches, you’ll need to set those one hour back before going to bed Saturday night, November 2, as Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 3. At that time, 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m.
That means we will “gain” an hour of sleep, but we’ll all lose daylight in the evening.
While you’re changing your clocks, it’s a good idea to replace smoke detector batteries and give your fire extinguishers a good shake so they will work properly in the event of a fire.
A noticeable impact of this time change will be changes to the sunrise and sunset. In Augusta, Sunday’s sunrise will occur at 6:48 a.m. Sunset will occur at 5:34 p.m. Daylight hours continue to shorten through through December 21, which is the winter solstice. So you can credit both the time change and the angle of the sun for giving us more darkness.
