Don't Forget Daylight Savings Time Ends at 2 AM

Sunday, November 4th at 2 am Daylight Saving time ends
Just a friendly reminder to set your clocks back one hour this Sunday. And, don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors!

Daylight Saving Time was born of necessity during World War I and II. Going to bed hours after sundown, people relied upon artificially generated light, depleting fuel reserves. Germany realized that this precious commodity could better be used to serve the war effort, and instituted the first daylight saving laws in 1915. England followed suit in 1916, and the United States, in 1918.
We will spring forward on Sunday, March 10, 2013 at 2 AM.
One month (April 10-14, 2013) later I hope to see you in Omaha at the 39th Biennial AASH Conference!  For more info click here.
