Pearland Texas Real Estate : Don't Forget To "Fall Back" Tonight!

Don't Forget To "Fall Back" Tonight!

Don't Forget to Fall Back!

It's that time of year again - time to set our clocks back and get an extra hour!  Here are some tips of things to do from Oklahoma University when you set your clocks back:


Check and replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. Replace any smoke alarms older than ten years. Replace any CO alarms older than five years.

  • Prepare a disaster supply kit for your house (water, food, flashlights, batteries, blankets)
    Once you've created your home disaster kit, use the semi-annual time change to check its contents (including testing/replacing flashlight batteries).


  • Check home and outbuilding storage areas for hazardous materials. Discard (properly, please) any which are outdated, no longer used, or in poor condition. Move any which are within reach of kids or pets. 
  • Check and discard expired medications - those dates really DO have meaning - some very common over-the-counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging.

And most of all - enjoy that extra hour! Have a great weekend!

Funny how we were talking about setting the clocks back earlier today and how quickly I forgot all about it until I saw your post... ironic how that works.
