Daylight time ends; did you set your clocks back?

Mornings should be brighter for early risers

Daylight saving time ended at 2 a.m. this morning, marking the start of standard time that will last until March 9.

For many, the traditional act of resetting clocks has given way to a wireless society where clocks, television sets, computers and even some watches now re-set to standard and daylight times automatically.

Laws governing the official time vary by state although must comply with national changes dating back to 1918, which have undergone several changes since then.

The most recent, in 2008, set standard time to begin at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday in November (to allow Halloween trick and treaters to have the advantage of a bit of late daylight on Oct. 31) and then daylight time to return at 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March, which will be March 9 in 2014.
