Clocks Hit Rewind

Are you feeling well rested? That’s probably because daylight saving time ended Sunday morning.

The bi-annual clock twirling ritual has been around since congress enacted it during World War I.

Clocks were turned back one hour during the wee hours on Sunday, as we do every fall. It's easy to remember if you use the phrase “spring forward, fall backward.” According to a British study, that extra hour of sleep could be good for you. The study found the risk of a heart attack fell 10% in the fall back, but it rose 10% with the spring change. Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, keep their clocks the same year round.
