Hold on. Is this the time of year where we lose an hour of sleep or gain an hour?

Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2am on Sunday, November 5. Most of us will either set the clocks on on our microwaves and walls back an hour on Saturday night before we go to bed, or wake up to find our phones and computers took care of business in the middle of the night while we slept.

After 2am on November 5, we'll all be on Standard Time again in Michigan - Eastern Standard Time for all of Lower Michigan and most of the Upper Peninsula; Central Standard Time for the four Michigan counties along the state's border with Wisconsin: Gogebic, Iron, Dickinson and Menominee.

The return to Daylight Saving Time is slated for 2am on Sunday, March 10, 2024.
