Clocks turn back on mainland


Clocks on the mainland moved back one hour early today as daylight saving time ended across most of the nation.

The change to standard time happened at 2 a.m. today in each time zone.

Americans change their clocks twice a year, back one hour in the fall and forward one hour in the spring. Daylight-saving time resumes on March 13, 2011.

The yearly ritual, almost a century old, was made official in 1966. Hawaii and Arizona are the only two states that remain on standard time year-round.

The U.S. government has a free website — www.time.gov — showing the correct time, by zone, in all 50 states and U.S. possessions.
