I didn't think of this until I woke up, so it's not an ahead-of-time reminder, alas.

Daylight Savings Time ends tonightlast night at 2am (which suddenly becomes 1am). This means that (in most of the US and Canada) you need to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed or you will be confused in the morning.

Do you mean that if I do set my clock back an hour before bed I won't be confused in the morning? I seem to be confused every morning...just ask my boss! Does this ritual work on other days, as well? I may need to try it!  :D

I remembered very late last night -- just in time to set the two clocks in our bedroom so we would get up at the right time. Neither the dogs nor the cats were amused that our extra hour of sleep made their breakfast an hour late.

Yes, as Darkhawk correctly observed, animals who are ready to be milked...or fed...really don't care much about what our clocks read.

I'm usually up pretty late. My wife keeps coming out to check the clock in the kitchen. It's the one clock in the house that doesn't change on its own.
I have half a mind to change it just to confuse her. But, more than likely, we'll both just wait til it's correct again next April.
Oh, is it time again to say "Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets?"?

Okay. Fuck Trump gently in the ear with a swarm of pissed-off hornets.

you will be confused in the morning.

I totally forgot until Sunday afternoon, when my brother texted me a reminder. Good thing I didn't need to be anywhere.
