Halloween decorations are going up, pumpkins are arriving outside stores, temperatures are cooling down, and it's getting darker earlier in the day. Yes, fall is here, and while that makes many people happy, there's one event that we have left that really marks a new season. The changing of our clocks.

The end of Daylight Saving Time is coming soon, though we still have a month before the clocks change and we "fall back" an hour. At 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 6th, the time will change and we'll see more daylight in the morning hours and it will get dark much earlier in the evening.

While there have been a few attempts to get rid of the time change, a significant push to do away with it really hasn't materialized either in the Texas Legislature or even in Congress.

The changing of times goes back to World War I in order to conserve energy. Somehow, farmers have taken most of the blame from those who don't like the time change. The time change became permanent in 1973, and in 2005 the Uniform Time Act changed the schedule by moving the start date of Daylight Saving Time to the second Sunday of March, and its end to the first Sunday of November.

While fall my be here, you still have about a month to enjoy light at the end of the day, so enjoy it while you can.
