El Paso Readies To Fall Back An Hour As Daylight Saving Time Ends
El Pasoans, and millions of Americans, are ready to fall back in time as Daylight Savings Time ends in November.
As fall ushers in the cooler temps, so does the time change as clocks move back an hour in November.
And while most Americans follow the biannual time change, only two states do not observe Daylight Saving Time, Arizona and Hawaii.
However, this year may be the last time we switch back and forth because back in March, the U.S. Senate passed the Sunshine Protection Act, a bill that would establish Daylight Saving Time as permanent and end the twice-a-year time change.
The consensus indicates that most Americans are not fans of the time change.
As El Pasoans, we live on mountain standard time, so sunrise usually falls between 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. hours year-round. If daylight savings time becomes the norm, that would mean that sundown wouldn't occur until 9 p.m., giving us more time to enjoy the outdoors.
Nothing is set in stone, whatever your preference is, as the bill has yet to be passed by the House of Representatives as debates have stalled the bill's passage, and no agreements have been reached at this time.
So at least for now, we are still planning to fall back an hour as Daylight Saving Time is scheduled to end on the first Sunday in November.
So get ready, and remember to set your clock back an hour on Sunday evening (November 6) as Daylight Saving Time ends, and perhaps for the final time in 2022.
