You've no doubt noticed it's staying darker later in the morning and getting darker earlier in the evening.

That's one of the sure signs fall has arrived in El Paso. The other being the UTEP football team already having a losing season.

Less daylight also signals the impending end of that archaic ritual we call Daylight Saving Time. So when do we turn the clocks back and get that mythical “extra hour of sleep” we hear so much about?

This year 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 5 marks the beginning of the clock on your microwave being wrong for the next six months.

Of course, the change in time will completely disrupt our lives, schedules and body chemistry. But on the upside you get an extra hour to start digging that bomb shelter to survive the Trump presidency.

The time change is also a great reminder to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and love toys. Okay, maybe not the last one -- but then again, I don't know you.
