  • Daylight Saving Time 2017: When do we set the clocks back?

Interestingly, the province of Saskatchewan (except the city of Lloydminster, which is located partly in Alberta, and observes Mountain Time year-round), does not turn back its clocks an hour in the fall.

Daylight savings time ends Sunday, November 5 at 2 a.m.

The panel said it would be too disruptive for MA to unilaterally change time zones, but recommended talks with other regional states.

DST has existed in some form or another in the United States and Europe since World War I, when both sides in the conflict were seeking ways to conserve fuel by extending daylight hours for a portion of the year.

After this weekend you won't need to adjust your clocks again until the second Sunday in March of 2018, which will be 2 a.m. on March 11.

As for Hawaii, its location closer to the equator gives the state more consistent days year round.

Some see it as an extra hour of sleep, others say it's cause for major economic losses. However, that also means your evening commute may be in the dark. Due to the scorching temperatures in their unique desert climate, no one wanted an extra hour of sunshine and heat.
