It’s That Time of Year to “Fall Back” as Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend

Written by on November 2, 2021

It’s that time of the fall season that a lot of people dread, the end of Daylight Saving Time which happens early Sunday morning (November 7th) at 2am. So, don’t forget to change any clocks you have back an hour before bed on Saturday night.

The positive is that we get an extra hour of sleep as clocks are set back one hour, however the bad is that sunrises and sunsets will be even earlier in the day. More good news is that we’ll start to ADD minutes to our sunset times beginning with the Winter Solstice which occurs on Tuesday, December 21st.

La Crosse Sunrise and Sunsets This Week:
Wednesday, November 3rd: Sunrise (7:44am), Sunset (5:52pm)
Thursday, November 4th: Sunrise (7:45am), Sunset (5:51pm)
Friday, November 5th: Sunrise (7:46am), Sunset (5:49pm)
Saturday, November 6th: Sunrise (7:48am), Sunset (5:48pm)
Sunday, November 7th: Sunrise (6:49am), Sunset (4:47pm)

If you’re not a fan of Daylight Saving Time, according to Reuters, “abolishing daylight saving time – or conversely, extending it year-round – would require a law passed by U.S. Congress. States are allowed to opt out of daylight saving time, but all states are required to follow standard time from November to March.” There have been legislators in some states that have tried to pass laws abandoning Daylight Saving Time, but have been unsuccessful. Arizona and Hawaii are the only states that do not reset their clocks twice a year.

So, soak up these “later” sunsets while you can.
