Time Change 2010 Fall 11-07-2010 Fall Back Tomorrow

Time Change 2010 Fall Back tomorrow, or 11-7-2010. The 2010 time change occurs within the next 24 hours in the US. Europe went through their time change last weekend, and if you recall there was a massive iPhone app glitch which actually woke people up one hour late. Therefore, if you use an iPhone to wake yourself up you might want to find an alternate method of waking up in the morning.

Time changes are supposed to help us conserve fuel. The fall time change is a return to standard time, which is the time that it would be if there was no Daylight Savings time started in the spring. Not all locations recognize the time change, either.

The latest change to Daylight Saving Time actually came from President George W. Bush in 2005. DST was extended an hour in the hopes of conserving energy after a spike in costs that was associated with hurricane Katrina.

Fall Back 2010 is great because it lets you sleep an extra hour. Don't forget, though that Spring Forward will be here before you know it!
