Daylight Saving Time: Is Texas Ready to Fall Back?
Daylight Saving Time in Texas started in March, and now, residents are preparing to fall back as it is coming to an end. But when exactly should Texas change their clocks? For those who are not used to the biannual tradition, what happens during Daylight Saving Time?
DST is a twice-a-year tradition where people who follow it need to change their clocks. Daylight Saving Time started in March when they had set their clocks one hour forward in Texas. Now that the end is approaching soon, they have to put their clocks one hour backward.
The time change will happen at precisely 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 7. Meaning, the 2 a.m. local time will become 1 a.m. Though this biannual tradition has been practiced for years, many people still lack an understanding of the concept of Daylight Saving Time. Not only that, but it still creates confusion about time.
President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the 1966 federal law, which specifies that daylight time applies from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March. It lasts until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November. Of all the American states including Texas, Arizona and Hawaii decided not to follow Daylight Saving Time.
