Here in IN we don't have to mess with the clocks but I figured that I would remind everyone else so you don't get up too early on Sunday morning.

WTF? I thought that was a nationwide thing? So, with the Eastcoast and Westcoast being 3 hours apart, and then all the time zones in between, how the hell does it work if some places don't make the change?:confused: :dunno

AZ just switches between MST and PST. We like to keep things simple here.

Daylight Saving Time -- for the U.S. and its territories -- is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Eastern Time Zone portion of the State of Indiana, and by most of Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona).

Indiana is one of three states which do not Spring ahead from "standard" to "daylight saving" time or Fall back from daylight to standard six months later. Arizona* and Hawaii are the others. Under the US Uniform Time Act of 1966, the Department of Transportation is in charge of time zones in the United States and ensuring that jurisdictions observing daylight saving time begin and end on the same date. However, states may determine participation in Daylight Saving Time.

The US Uniform Time Act of 1966 places Indiana in the Eastern time zone. In 1969, ten (10) counties in the Chicago and Evansville corners of the state were moved to the Central time zone. At some point, according to the Indiana Film Commission Online, an eleventh, Starke County, in the northwest (Chigago area) was added. Five (5) counties near Cincinnati and Louisville, while in the Eastern zone with the remaining 76 counties, do observe Eastern Daylight Time. Indiana State law, however, is allowed by the Uniform Time Act of 1966 to keep those 76 counties on Eastern Standard Time (EST) all year long.
