Washington (AP) - Most Americans will be able to get an extra hour of sleep this weekend thanks to the annual shift back to standard time.
Officially, the change occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday. People are being reminded to turn their clocks back an hour.
Public safety officials say this is also a good time to put a new battery in the smoke alarm, no matter where you live.
Daylight saving time returns at 2 a.m. local time the second Sunday in March.
