Is Ohio Ready to Fall Back?


Unlike in the past months, many people in Northeast Ohio notice that the sun is setting earlier these days. Since September, the sunrise usually begins at 6:53 a.m. while the sun sets at 7:59 p.m. 

As these things continue to happen, people lose a few minutes of light every day for the rest of the month. Though it may seem only a few minutes, people in Ohio should prepare for the upcoming fall back.

What happens when people fall back? It is the time when people set their clock one hour backward, as the name suggests. 

This year, fall back will occur at precisely 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 7. It is expected that the daylight will continue to trend down once the clocks fall back. 

The earliest sunsets in Ohio would be in early December (from December 5 to December 11). On the other hand, the shortest amount of daylight will be on December 21, marking the cold season's beginning.

Countries, states, and provinces that observe Daylight Saving Time are the only places that will change their clocks. DST is a biannual tradition that consists of spring forward and fall back. 

Spring forward happened last March, and now, the fallback will begin in November. Daylight Saving Time in Ohio resumes at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 13, 2022.

Daylight Saving Time was created because it served as an energy-saving measure in World War I and II. However, people have different options whether it saves energy or not. 

Because of Daylight Saving Time, some people had experienced disturbed sleep schedules. But no matter what Ohio believes, residents still need to follow the time change.
