For those living in the United States, don't forget to set your clock back one hour tonight. Daylight savings time ends Sunday November 3rd 2013 at 2:00am, which for insomniacs is tonight. If you do forget to set you clocks back, you will be 1 hour late for things tomorrow.

Thanks for the reminder but my computers/tablets move the hour back for me automatically.

No, an hour late.   Fall back an hour, if you forget and have an appointment at 9 and your clock is still set an hour ahead you will be arriving at 10, an hour late.

You've got it backwards.  If you didn't change your clock and showed up at 9, you're actually there at 8....an hour early.  Just like my relief did this morning at work...hilarious he showed up at 5 and didn't realize it until he got there.

lol that happened to me once, ended up an hour early in the freezing cold outside my depot, wondering why my truck wasn't loaded, who had the keys to it etc...

Millions of people in Arizona and Hawaii are saying WTF you talking about?

So did Indiana till last year (and only PART of Indiana now does observe it). My friend there is like WTF! :angry:

 

So the upper west stays the same while the rest of IN changes time. Makes no sense. LOL

All my stuff switched but I forgot I needed to adjust my stove and microwave. I think I need to start shopping for smart kitchen appliances :p

Meh, the clocks went back an hour on the 27th October in the UK and I still haven't gotten round to changing the time on certain devices.
