Default Time change on Saturday memo

We don't touch anything, but the mainland will do the 1 hr. clock adjustment, so be aware!
Can't remember which way tho...
Do we lose or gain an hour?

They set their clocks back by one hour. And change the middle character in their time zone from D to S. Like so:

If it's 1:00 pm HST here the following time and settings would be:

4:00 pm PDT to 3:00 pm PST
5:00 pm MDT to 4:00 pm MST
6:00 pm CDT to 5:00 pm CST
7:00 pm EDT to 6:00 pm EST

Easy way to remember, based on the seasons: Spring forward, Fall back.

We remember it by thinking "Spring forward, Fall back." Then they keep changing which weekend it is, so all the old electronics get messed up.

The thread is entitled time change on SATURDAY, but actually it's Sunday (2 am Sunday).

But when the last time change occurs on the Mainland (2:00 Sunday morning, Pacific Time zone), it'll still be Saturday in Hawai`i.

No problemo, as I'm about to bust out the champagne to celebrate my new baby, a 7 1/2 lb. beautiful bouncing new Strat! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBay/SAPl.dll...m=280415516860
It's from the new-ish Classic Player 50s 60th Anni. line via the Mexican Custom Shop. CHEERS!

Most of the mainland will set their collective clocks back 1 hour this weekend, but there are some locales that don't bother with it, such as Arizona and parts of Indiana.

I remember when I (for a short time) lived in Chicago some years back, that the one hour set-back of the clock was a highly anticipated event every fall among the bar crowd. Most standard bars in Chicago at the time I lived there had mandated 2AM closures, which happens to be the precise time clocks are adjusted from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time in the fall, thus 2AM magically became 1AM, hence another hour of partying at one's favorite watering hole.

Actually, there is a part of Arizona that does not observe Daylight Saving Time as well. This would be the Navajo Nation. But other than that, the rest of the Copper State keeps its clocks at Mountain Standard Time on a permanent basis.

An extra hour to party, sure. Conversely, the early riser crowd could look at it as an extra hour of snooze time before they go to church or work.

Wish I could, but nope. So, you've gotta come here. Plenny musicians you need to hear!
It's 1:30 in the morning now and I just got home from almost 6 straight hours of playing music. Onolicious! And let's see now... if it's 1:30am Thursday here, then it's, what, 4:17 Friday afternoon in Seattle? Shoots. I stay confused.

I feel sorry for the programmers for KHVH and KHBZ. When I used to set up the recording schedules for those radio station's talk programming it was a total nightmare especially for Coast to Coast AM. Miss one hour of programming and the conspiracy theorists come out of the woodwork accusing KHVH of keeping the truth from the public by censoring Art Bell. Solar Flare interruptions were even worse!

Super confused. Isn't "not observing" DST the same thing as "keeping clocks at MST on a permanent basis?" If so, then that's exactly what Surfingfarmboy said.

Actually, what I meant to say was that the Navajo Nation in Arizona does observe DST. So unlike the rest of Arizona, they do move their clocks forward and back at the appropriate times.

Within the state of Arizona, which does not observe Savings Time, the Navajo Nation does observe it (as FM said). But the Hopi Nation, which falls within the Navajo Reservation, does not observe it. Please adjust your watches accordingly when traveling through that region on Highway 87.

My head is spinning!

Mexico observed the time change last weekend!

It would be so much easier to just stay on daylight savings time all the time. At least that's the sentiment of the majority here on the mainland from what I"ve been hearing. It gives us extra daylight hours and with us working/commuting 10-12 hours a day, it's nice to have a little bit of sunshine left when we get home. Plus, it would cancel out all the confusing stuff.

With the subject of time being discussed here, I was wondering if anyone might be able to answer something I've pondered in the past in regards to time zones. Here's the scenario: You are on a Pacific Ocean island, that happens to have the International Time Zone run through it. It is midnight Sunday on the Hawaii side of the line. Is it therefore midnight Monday on the Japan side of the line? (I'm using Hawaii and Japan as reference points to avoid any confusion as to what is "east" and "west" of the line) I'm asking this because I have a map that shows the time at the International Time Zone listed as Sunday 00:00 on the Hawaii Side of the line and Sunday 24:00 Monday 00:00 on the Japan Side of the line. Is there a 24 hour advance of the clock when one crosses the line from the Hawaii side of the line to the Japan side of the line?

This may help - or it may add to the confusion, Sfb:

Prior to 1995, International Date Line split the country of Kiribati. The result was that the eastern part of Kiribati was a whole day and two hours behind the western part of the country where its capital is located. In 1995 Kiribati decided to move the International Date Line far to the east- which placed the entire country into the same day. Now eastern Kiribati and Hawaii, which are located in the approximately same area of longitude, are a whole day apart.

Why did Hawaii throw DST out of the window?
Because we wanted to see how time flies.
