Daylight saving time begins Sunday

first_imgBatesville, In. — On Sunday, November 4, at 2 am, clocks will be turned back one hour, heralding the end of daylight saving time for much of the country.The biggest consequence: The change shifts daylight back into the morning hours. For 9-to-5 office workers, it means saying goodbye to leaving work while it’s still light out. And for weekend workers, it means an additional glorious hour of sleep on Sunday. And for election weary people it means one more hour of political adds.Daylight Saving Time started as an energy conservation method in World War I and became a national standard in the 1960’s.last_img
