It already feels like winter in Iowa, so why not just “lose” an hour of daylight as soon as possible to go along with the darkness of 2020.

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, Nov. 1, the earliest date possible, as Standard Time begins on the first Sunday in November.

Remember to “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on Halloween: Saturday, Oct. 31.

While we “lose” an hour of daylight, we “gain” an hour of sleep.

Daylight Saving Time returns at 2 a.m., the second Sunday in March.

As the gardening season also comes to a close in Iowa, take a look at some of the state’s most beautiful gardens.
