It's about that time of year for an extra hour of weekend.
Most Americans will get the chance to catch an extra hour of sleep this weekend thanks to the annual shift back to standard time.
Daylight saving time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday. Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don't have to change since they do not observe daylight saving time.
For everyone else, including those in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan, clocks can be set back one hour at 2 a.m. or before heading to bed on Saturday night.
It's also a good time to check your home for fire safety. Officials recommend putting new batteries in smoke alarms whenever a time change occurs, regardless of where you live.
In many areas of northwest Ohio, residents will celebrate Halloween in early darkness on Sunday evening. A rain and wind storm forced many local communities to postpone trick-or-treating until the weekend. Find your town's Halloween schedule
Daylight saving time will return at 2 a.m. on March 9, 2014.
