Little Known Facts About "Falling Back"
1. In September 1999, the West Bank was on Daylight Saving Time while Israel had just switched back to standard time. West Bank terrorists prepared time bombs and smuggled them to their Israeli counterparts, who misunderstood the time on the bombs. As the bombs were being planted, they exploded--one hour too early--killing three terrorists instead of the intended victims--two busloads of people.
2. A new law to extend DST to the first Sunday in November took effect in 2007, with the purpose of providing trick-or-treaters more light and therefore more safety from traffic accidents.For decades, candy manufacturers lobbied for a Daylight Saving Time extension to Halloween, as many of the young trick-or-treaters gathering candy are not allowed out after dark, and thus an added hour of light means a big holiday treat for the candy industry. Anecdotally, the 2007 switch may not have had much effect, as it appeared that children simply waited until dark to go trick-or-treating.
3. In Antarctica, there is no daylight in the winter and months of 24-hour daylight in the summer. But many of the research stations there still observe Daylight Saving Time anyway, to synchronize with their supply stations in Chile or New Zealand.
4. While twins born at 11:55 p.m. and 12:05 a.m. may have different birthdays, Daylight Saving Time can change birth order -- on paper, anyway. During the time change in the fall, one baby could be born at 1:55 a.m. and the sibling born ten minutes later, at 1:05 a.m. In the spring, there is a gap when no babies are born at all: from 2:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m.
Missoula County Tax Bills have been mailed to residents and you should see it in your mailbox soon, if you haven't already. What do you do with these tax bills? If you have a mortgage on your home and have an escrow account set up, you do not need to pay the bill you received in the mail. Your mortgage company will make that payment for you. If you do not have a mortgage or do not have an escrow accompanying your mortgage you can pay your bill directly either online or by mailing payment by November 30th. Also keep in mind that the bill you receive in November is payment for the first half of the year (January - June) and you will receive another bill in May or June that pays the second half of the previous year (July - December).
