Fall Back: What to Do with Your Extra Hour This Weekend

Are you ready to turn back your clock at 2 a.m. on Sunday? With the end of daylight saving time, we’ll all gain a whole extra hour this weekend! There’s plenty more you could with that time other than sleep and adjust your clocks. In fact, one very important task is to test and change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Using two memorable dates a year (like daylight saving time changes) can help ensure these life-saving devices are working properly.

Here are a few other ideas on activities you could tackle this weekend as we fall back:
