Daylight Savings: Time to Fall Back, Ellisville!

As the crisp autumn air settles over Ellisville, it's once again time to partake in the annual tradition of Daylight Savings. On this special occasion, we don't just gain an extra hour of sleep; we embrace the transition into shorter days and longer nights. Let's prepare to set our clocks back one hour and make some smart adjustments around our homes and community.


Remember to Rewind Your Clocks

An Extra Hour for Us

This Sunday, as Daylight Savings time ends, every resident in our charming city of Ellisville gets to enjoy the gift of time. At 2 a.m., or before you tuck in for the night on Saturday, make sure to set your clocks back one hour. Whether it’s the clock on your nightstand, the oven in the kitchen, or the wristwatch on your dresser, every tick counts.


Adjust Your Timers and Save Energy

Smart Lighting for Shorter Days

The end of Daylight Savings is the perfect moment to adjust the timers on your lighting systems. As darkness descends earlier, having your outdoor lights on timers ensures you're not using electricity when it’s not needed. It's not only about convenience but also about embracing energy efficiency in our beautiful Ellisville.


Check and Change: A Safety Reminder

While adjusting your clocks and timers, take the opportunity to check your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. Ensuring these are in working order is vital for your safety. Also, consider swapping out old bulbs for LED lighting, which can offer longer life spans and further energy savings.


A Time for Care and Community

As we “fall back” into the coziness of the season, let’s also reach out to neighbors, friends, and family. Offer a helping hand to those who might find these small changes a bit challenging, like the elderly in our community. A reminder call or a quick visit can make all the difference.


So let’s set our clocks back, adjust our routines, and enjoy the communal spirit that makes our city a wonderful place to live all year round.
