You've probably noticed it getting darker earlier in the evening. The change is 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 at the end of the day also signals the impending end of that annual archaic ritual we call Daylight Saving Time. And yes, it’s ‘saving’ and not ‘savings.’ And while I’m at it, it’s ‘Airway’ not ‘Airways’.

When Do We Fall Back in 2023?


Now that fall is upon us when do El Pasoans "fall back"? Which weekend do we turn the clocks back one hour and get that mythical “extra hour of sleep” we hear so much about?

'Turn the clocks back' by the way is mostly an outdated phrase we continue to use as we live in a time where you don’t have to go from room to room physically changing clocks anymore because (1.) you're not your grandpa, and (2.) most tech devices like that fancy phone that you use to do everything but actually talk to people will automatically adjust when DST begins and ends.

This year, plan on your microwave clock being off by an hour on November 5. That's when 2 a.m. becomes 1 a.m. again resulting in the mythical “extra hour of sleep.”

As much as some hate this time of the year, the time change is 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.
