Change the clocks, change the batteries!

Daylight Saving Time ends tonight for most of the U.S., at 2am local time. At 2:00, change your clocks to read 1:00. After being out really late last night I'm quite looking forward to the extra hour of sleep! Of course, most computers made in the last several years will change their own time as DST begins and ends, but some outdated OS versions don't know about the recent extension to DST.

Meantime, it's also time to change your smoke detector batteries, and if your carbon monoxide detector is battery-powered change those batteries, too. And while you're at it, flip your mattress over! (Flip in the fall, spin in the spring.)
