    And I was almost ready to do this today?!? Used to be this weekend in Ontario, they've changed it! Sneaky sneakertins!

    Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend
    Ontario And United States Add Extra Hour At The Same Time To Benefit
    Economy

    TORONTO, Nov. 2 /CNW/ - This weekend is the first time that Ontario
    clocks will "fall back" on the first Sunday in November, under extended
    daylight saving time.

    Daylight saving time will end in the early morning hours of Sunday,
    November 4. Ontarians should turn their clocks back one hour before going to
    bed on Saturday night and make sure all computers and other household devices
    reflect the correct time on Sunday morning.
    In 2006, the government extended daylight saving time by four weeks each
    year. Daylight saving time now starts on the second Sunday in March and ends
    on the first Sunday in November. Similar changes have been adopted by most
    Canadian provinces and territories, and the United States, helping to aid the
    smooth flow of goods and services among jurisdictions.

    I don't understand why they have to go changing things that were perfectly fine the way they are...
    It used to always be the Sunday before Hallowe'en, and it was darker earlier so the kids could be done earlier instead of waiting around til dark...

    It's actually darker much earlier now that we haven't turned back our clocks. Sun starts to set around here close to 5:30pm!

    It's super dark early as well. Normally when my OH leaves for work it's bright out, and it was pitch black at 7:30am this morning! Craaaaazy. :p
