I'm So Confused.

Denny and I have been in California for the past two weeks.  However, because there is no shopping on this side of the Colorado River and because we are located across the river from Parker, Arizona the campground here uses the Mountain Time Zone instead of the official Pacific Time zone.  So when we arrived here we didn't change the clocks because we knew when Daylight Savings time began we would still be on the same time. ???? you say?

You see, Arizona does not recognize Daylight Savings Time.  Therefore, this morning when everyone else was "springing forward" an hour, we in effect stayed at the same time because 6 AM Arizona time was now 6 AM Pacific DST due to the fact that Arizona time didn't change.  Still with me?

All of which is moot, because I forgot that our atomic clock was still set to automatically shift to Daylight Savings Time for the Mountain Time Zone and therefore when I woke up at 6:20 AM wondering why the coffee pot had not started to perk and why Patches was not bugging me for her breakfast it was because it was actually only 5:20 AM.  Which I didn't realize until Denny asked why it was still so dark at 7 AM.  *sigh*  So much for not having to change the clocks.

The times change can be confusing enough without your extra worries to deal with. :)

Good grief. How did one state get to hold out? Interesting.
Once while visiting my brother in the panhandle of Florida, he was in one time zone while on the other side of the bridge a few miles away where I stayed,was another. I was constantly late for dinner.
