Daylight Savings Time Begins Sunday, November 6

Don’t forget to move your clocks behind one hour, this Sunday, November 6, 2011, at 2:00 a.m.

And did you know that throughout its long history, Daylight Saving Time has had a remarkable and sometimes unexpected impact? For instance, in the 1950s and 60s, each state and locality was permitted to choose start and end DST dates as they desired. During 1965, Minneapolis and St. Paul–which are considered one metropolitan area–didn’t agree on start dates, and for a period of time, these Twin Cities had a one hour time change between them. And on one Ohio to Virginia bus route, passengers technically had to change their watches seven times in 35 miles!

Remember to change the battery in your smoke detector too!!

Making a habit of changing smoke detector batteries as we wind our clocks back is an excellent way to keep these important protection devices in working order. Having a working smoke alarm doubles a family’s chance of escaping a home fire.

As we enter the busy holiday season, I wish you and yours a safe and happy end to 2011 and an exciting and prosperous 2012…

Should you need any marketing help, as always, you can Hire Maureen.

All my best,

Maureen McHale
