Daylight saving

It’s that time again. Time to skip east by one time zone in search of saving daylight hours. Alaska (daylight) Time becomes British Columbia’s Pacific (standard) Time. Each successive time zone changes the clock by one hour, until Newfoundland Time.

Here, it’s offset by a half hour. So neighbouring Atlantic Time broadcasters tell listeners to stay tuned for the news at 6:00, 6:30 in Newfoundland.

Funny thing about time zones, when you include all the offsets like Newfoundland Time, the zones add up to more than 24 – and that’s a lot of daylight hours partially saved.
