Anyone showing up an hour late for where they need to be on Sunday will need to be excused for forgetting daylight saving time is back.

Arriving at 2 a.m. Sunday, it might cost us an hour of sleep or leave the forgetful among us to be late. But daylight saving time promises an extra hour of evening light for many months ahead.

The time change isn’t observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

Daylight saving time ends Nov. 2.
