Do we still need Daylight Saving Time?
It’s time to fall back as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end Sunday morning.
The end of DST 2016 means an extra hour of sleep. The official time change occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, when clocks must turn back an hour.
Smart phones and computers will automatically change to the correct time early Sunday morning. But if there’s a battery-powered wall clock that does not automatically adjust, maybe a moving back of clock hands before you go to bed Saturday night might be in order.
Sacramento firefighters traditionally take this time of year to remind residents that it is a good time to change batteries in smoke alarms.
While morning hours will be lighter earlier, the evenings will be darker sooner. Sunset on Sunday in Sacramento will be 5 p.m.
