Nova Scotians will gain an extra hour of sleep on Sunday, Nov. 4, when daylight savings time ends.
People should set their clocks behind one hour at 2 a.m., or Saturday evening before they go to bed.
Clocks are not the only items that need adjusting -- microwave ovens, car clocks, automatic timer lights, mobile devices, computers and other household devices all need to be turned back.
This is also a good opportunity to change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Smoke detectors should be tested monthly and replaced every 10 years.
