A year or so ago, I bought this great new alarm clock that never needs setting.  This morning I had the luxury of sleeping in, awakening at the late hour of 8:45 am.  I had to pick my daughter up 40 minutes away at 10:00 am.  I went downstairs to browse the Sunday paper and have a  cup of coffee. Imagine my shock when I glanced up at the clock and instead of being 9:00 am it was 10:00 am!  Of course, you have figured out what really smart alarm clock adjusted for the end of Day Light Savings Time--only this year it takes place in November (the first Sunday in November, to be exact). The bad news, I was really late to pick up my daughter, the good, did I sleep in!

So before you hit the pillow tonight, double check the time on your alarm clock and make sure that it is not automatically setting itself to reflect the end of Day Light Savings Time---a week early!

Holly, sorry to hear about your fancy clock.  I think I would have thrown it out the window.   By the way, this comment puts me over 20,000 points...and I saved it for you.!
