Quoted from MadPole:
Daylight savings is applicable to both Eastern and Pacific time zones.
The time zones are always 3 hours apart.
You wouldn't believe the arguments I get in with people about DST. Many just don't get it, especially here in Indy, where we just started using it about 10 years ago.
People complain about the short days in the winter, and blame DST. I tell them "We're not ON DSTL right now! This is how it was normally!!!"
They still don't get it.
