Title: Chat Time/Daylight Savings Time/European Summer Time
Post by: DesertRose on March 05, 2018, 06:29:53 am
Next Sunday, 11 March 2018, the US (and possibly also Canada?  Not sure) goes on daylight savings time.  Europe doesn't go to summer time until Sunday, 25 March 2018.  Thus, for the 11 March and 18 March chats, chat will start at approximately 11 p.m. GMT.

(revanne and I just discussed this in the Shoutbox, and I figured it would be helpful to put the info somewhere easier to find once those particular Shoutbox messages scroll out of view.)

Thanks, Jerusha!  (It's hard sometimes to keep up with who does what in which country when.  ;D )

I struggle in a country with one time zone so am seriously impressed how you all keep up.

For me, a lot of it is practice.

For as long as I can remember, I've lived in Eastern but had family in other time zones (bio-father lived in Arizona and later New Mexico, both Mountain time, paternal grandmother also lived in New Mexico until she passed, paternal aunt lives in California [Pacific time zone] and has for longer than I've been alive), so having had to calculate, "Wait, what time is it?" before I called my aunt since I was a wee little DesertRosebud does mean I've had a good bit of practice.  ;)

When DD2 lived for a time in South Africa that really threw me because it was only an hour different. My head said " but she's 10 hours away" but of course that was north to south not east -west.
