Well, we just switched back to Standard Time here in Alberta. How are things done in BC? Its been so long since we lived there that I forgot. I think changing the clocks twice a year is twice too often. Some places got it right and don't bother. I wish we'd pick one time or the other and leave the clocks alone forever! :eek:

Sorry for the double post! I'm still not quite awake because I worked the midnite shift. 9 hours.

I would prefer to stay on PDT all year round.

When I was working, my company had offices all over BC. Two of our offices; Cranbrook and Dawson Creek were different than the rest of the province. I can't remembering exactly how. I think Cranbrook stayed on PST all year round and Dawson was on Mountain Time. (or the other way round). It was a PITA!

Edit: looked it up. They are both on Mountain Time, However, Dawson Creek does not go on DST, but Cranbrook does. So for part of the year, Dawson Creek matches Victoria's time. Cranbrook is always an hour earlier. :ohwell:

There are three times that are important to me; breakfast, lunch and dinner!

....if they must move it, then move it 30 minutes and leave it alone. I've been saying this for years but no one listens to me!!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
