Sonrise Notes for November 2nd...
...Most of us had to set the microwaves and stove clocks an hour back as the end of daylight Saving Time has come. So far, the only states not participating were Hawaii and Arizona, but Utah lawmakers are also pushing to drop the time change each year. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that a study has found that a majority of Utahans would like to get rid of daylight saving time — 67 percent to be exact. Colorado, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming are also actively looking into ditching daylight saving time, so when the first Sunday of May 2015 rolls around, YOU may no longer have to “Spring Forward” either.
...Big Daddy Weave are on the road right now with their Beautiful Offerings Tour. Last night they were at the Marion Cultural & Civic Center in Marion, IL with Dara Mclean, Group 1 Crew and Chris August. Tonight you can find them at Evangel Temple in Meridian, MS.
