Attention! Attention! Happy November beautiful … yes I am talking to you! This is your first reminder that on November 4, Daylight Saving Time ends! When local daylight time is about to reach Sunday, November 4 at 2:00 am clocks are turned backward 1 hour to Sunday, November 4, at 1:00 am local standard time instead. Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier on Nov 4, 2018 than the day before, which means there will be more light in the morning. That also means winter is coming! Have no fear because if you haven’t been paying attention both our Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors are here to warm you up because both teams are on FIRE! What is your plan this month?
