Those 7:30 a.m. commutes will get darker before they get lighter when Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday.
Remember, you’ll "fall back" and set your clocks back one hour. Many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Savings Time begins or ends. It begins again on March 10, 2013.
That extra hour gives you a chance to get out in Palatine, you could:
- Go to the Palatine Pizza Showdown at Durty Nellies
- Attend the Turkey Shoot at Twin Lakes
- Join Toastmasters in Palatine
- Attend a performance by the World Renowned Magical Strings at Immanuel Lutheran School
- Go on a 25-mile road ride starting at Mike's Bike Shop
- And visit many other events listed on Palatine Patch in the coming weeks!
- Become a Local Voice on Palatine Patch!
When you change your clocks in the fall and spring, it’s also a good time to change smoke detector batteries and check to make sure device are in working order.
