Good Morning: No, You Didn't Miss the End of Daylight Saving Time

After an overnight low in the 40's today will see a high of about 53 degrees. Tuesday will be a carbon copy of Monday. And both days will be sunny, with not a chance of rain.

The question that's been burning in your mind is "When does daylight savings time end?" That question was one of the top searches in Google today. The answer is next Sunday, November 7th.

I think that people want to know when the clocks change in part because we need to know and in part because we want to get it over with already. There are lots of reasons why we change the clocks twice a year. There's a lot of history, a lot of tradition. And a lot of..stupidity. Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, and several territories, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands don't "celebrate" daylight savings time. The people who live there get to miss all the fun of figuring how to change the clocks on what seems to be every appliance and piece of technology.
