Falling back for daylight savings time helps people get sleep

Posted:

Eight months ago we sprung forward, and Saturday night, to the relief of the exhausted all over the country, we fell back.
 
Daylight savings time ended early Saturday morning with everyone setting their clocks back an hour.

For many people it's a sign that winter is here, with the days seeming ever more shorter.

The sunset in Rapid City Saturday just after 4:30p.m.

But while many are dreading the extended darkness, they were thankful for the extra hour, which many people we talked to used to rest up.
 
"I had a little bit of jet lag so it was fantastic for me to get that extra hour," said Kali Parker.
 
"I loved my extra hour of sleep, it was rejuvenating, very awesome," said Chay Parker.
 
State Fire Marshal Paul Merriman says daylight savings time is a perfect time to make sure your smoke detectors are working properly.
