Daylight saving ends 2013 news from the Seattle PI today reminds everyone about tonight (Nov. 2). It's official, daylight saving ends late Saturday night (but actually Sunday morning, Nov. 3) at 2 a.m. local time. As the report points out, it is time for everyone to enjoy that extra hour of sleep overnight.
This is the time of year where everyone in Washington State gets to set their clocks back an hour. Everyone who doesn't have to work through the night will get to enjoy a little more sleep, with those enjoying late Saturday parties getting an extra hour to enjoy themselves.
The next time it will come into play is when everyone has to "spring forward" their clocks an hour in late winter. The exact date for that is Sunday, March 9 at 2 a.m. PST. Until that point, the intent is for everyone to enjoy a bit of extended daylight and less energy usage to heat homes during the night.
Now everyone has to make sure that they remember to change those clocks as they head to bed when the 2013 daylight saving ends for most people in the United States. The debate about whether it is actually a viable strategy to save energy in the country can continue at another time.
