Time chance - fall back

clock with "fall back"

ABILENE, Texas -

This is the weekend that we need to change our clocks BACK one hour.  We return to Central Standard Time at 2 a.m. Sunday morning.  But you don't need to stay up until 2 a.m.  Set your clocks BACK one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

Some electronic devices like cable TV boxes and smart phones will change themselves automatically.

Now is also a good time to check or change the batteries in your smoke detector.  If you live in a home that uses natural gas for heat, you should also have a carbon monoxide detector.  Check the batteries in that too.

While you're changing batteries, if you have a NOAA weather radio, check to see that it is working and its battery is OK.

We will remain on Central Standard Time until Sunday March 10, 2013.
