WASHINGTON - It's the weekend to turn your clock back an hour. Eastern Standard Time resumes Sunday at 2 a.m.

What are you going to do with that extra hour this weekend? Post a comment in this story, comment on WTOP's Facebook Page or use #WTOP on Twitter.

Many on WTOP's morning shift plan to take advantage of the hour to get another precious hour of sleep:

Mike Jakaitis, morning editor: "I'll probably change my fantasy football lineup for the umpteenth time."

Mitchell Miller, WTOP news director: "I plan to pull the covers back over my head and engage in peaceful slumber." Yes, he really said this out loud.

Mike Moss, WTOP morning anchor: Plans to "reserve the hour" to recover from the Redskins game.

Bruce Alan, WTOP morning anchor: "Sleep."

Jason Fraley, WTOP writer: "I'm going to a wedding. I'll get an extra hour of dancing in."

Molly Welton, WTOP operations: "Sleeping, probably."

Tristiana Hinton, assistant editor: "I will be asleep."

Gary Emerling, WTOP.com digital editor: "Sleep."

Tucker Echols, Washington Business Journal: "Sleeping."

Dave Preston, WTOP Sports: "Watching YouTube videos - either Journey after Journey song or James Bond theme songs. I've been YouTubing those. It's easy to go from one to another on YouTube, especially with 'SkyFall' coming up next week. After my 'Dallas' obsession died (dream season), I went full bore into 007."
