Set Clocks Back One Hour — DST Ends

Daylight saving time ends tonight, the first Sunday in November, at 2am. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour. It’s the law! (The enforcement arm of the National Institute of Standards and Technology is a joke — no tanks, no drones.) So who follows DST?

Most of the United States follows daylight saving time, but a few regions do not. Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and most of Arizona do not observe DST. In Arizona, the Navajo Indian territories do observe DST. Historically, local jurisdictions were allowed to decide when they would locally switch to DST, or not to observe DST at all.

(Way to go, Arizona. DST is just another tool of the federal government for controlling the masses. They’re coming to get you. Don’t make it easy.)

Seen here is the clock in the RISD Fleet Library downtown on Westminster Street.
