Standard Time returns – extra hour to sleep

(Danbury News Times) One bright spot to a chilly weekend is that people will gain an extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning.

The switch to Eastern Standard Time officially happens at 2 a.m. Sunday, an hour that will actually occur twice that morning. The metaphysical impact of that may be worth pondering, but the move from Daylight Saving Time also has practical implications.

There will be an hour more daylight at the start of the day. It has to come from somewhere, so the sun will retreat earlier.
