Time ChangeNovember 1st, 2012 at 5:50 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
The Time Change occurs this weekend. We turn the clocks back one hour as we go back to Standard Time. The actual change is at 2 AM early Sunday. The clock goes back to 1 AM. That means an extra hour of sleep Saturday night. I also want to point out that the sunrise time tomorrow (Fri.) is the latest sunrise of the year. That means many of us will be heading to work or school in the dark. Keep a close eye out for kids waiting for the bus or walking to school. Today (8:19 AM) and Saturday (8:20 AM) are the two latest sunrises of the year. Two states don’t change the clock during the year. That’s (most of) Arizona (the Navajo Nation does not change clocks, the Hopi Nation does) and Hawaii. Parts of Indiana used to not do time changes during the year, but all of Indiana changes the clocks now. Odd/Even parking goes into effect today (Nov. 1 to April 1) in Grand Rapids. Check out the picture of the wave hitting the lighthouse near Cleveland. Picture of the sunrise by “bblooyenga” at Report it. Here it is full screen.
Peak waves from Sandy: 21.7 feet Lake Michigan, 23.0 feet Lake Huron, 32.5 feet in the Atlantic Ocean. The storm tied for 2nd largest since 1988 in the Atlantic. Hurricane Olga was the biggest in 20o1. The death toll from Sandy is now 90 in the U.S. (40 of those in N.Y. City) and 158 if you count the Caribbean and one in Canada.
