When Does Daylight Savings Time End in 2012?

Daily commutes will get darker before they get lighter. Will the "fall back" in time change when you start that drive to work?

Those 7:30 a.m. commutes will get darker before they get lighter. Officially, Daylight Savings Time kicks off at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.

Remember, you’ll “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour. Many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Savings Time begins or ends, like cell phones or computers, but that pesky microwave, alarm clock beside your bed and digital read on the stove are most likely going to need to be changed by hand. 

Here's what a few Patch fans had to say on Facebook: 

"Dig out my SAD lamp. LOL," Rachael Ropel Herrenbruck posted. 

"I turn into a werewolf most years," posted Michael Thomas Ray.

When you change your clocks in the fall and spring, it’s also a good time to change smoke detector batteries and check to make sure device are in working order.

Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Savings Time.

It begins again on March 10, 2013.

What will you do with the extra hour? Are you happy it's here, or sad for less sunlight? Tell us in the comments!
