And, it's not just in the US that it is going to happen. I think most
of the Canadian provinces are also following the same time change
dates, I know here in New Brunswick it is the case. There's only one
Canadian time zone that will not be affected, because it never changes
the time. Now, I'm wondering if I'll need to change my clock-radio
that automatically sets its time when you plug it in.
