Change time - change batteries
« on: November 03, 2011, 08:28:26 am »
This weekend we go  back to regular time - daylight saving time is over.  While you change back your clocks (fall behind one hour), make sure you either change or check the batteries on your smoke or other detectors.

I don't know about you, by my smoke detectors always beep to no end and won't shut up when they need new batteries.  That's reminder enough!  lol

One of mine had a beeping fit this summer so we just went ahead and changed both of them then.  I can't seem to ever get on schedule with changing the time too. :dontknow: :dontknow:

I would much rather have it light in the evening than in the morning.

Thanks for mentioning this because I would have forgotten all about it. Everybody would have been late. LOL

Thank you for the reminder.

I always hate the "fall back" change - just glad I am not working this Sunday morning.

Great Idea to change the batteries on smoke detectors as well.   Looks like I need to
get to the store for more batteries.

Thanks for letting me know...that means we will have shorter days, and longer nights. I do not like it when it gets dark early.
