Feeling a little more well-rested than on a normal Sunday morning?

Daylight Saving Time ended at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 5 when clocks should have been turned back one hour.

Firefighters recommend changing the batteries in both your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Here are a few facts you may not know courtesy of al.com .

  • Two U.S. states, Hawaii and Arizona, do not abide by daylight savings time.
  • Daylight Saving Time is the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin, who figured using daylight more efficiently would safe candles.
  • The current timetable for daylight savings time was set on Aug. 8, 2005, when President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act. During the prior 20 years, daylight savings time began on the first Sunday in April and ended on the last Sunday in October.
  • It's Daylight Saving Time - not Daylight Savings Time.
