newbie timezone question

by easybiztools 7 replies
Hi,

Base on these 2 timezone map:

Time Zone in the United States - Maps of World

Time Zone
(Hawaii - far west) and (Eastern Time - far east)

Would it be correct to say that the time difference between the furthest spot in the West of USA to the furthest spot in the East of USA is about 6 hours?


Thanks!
Adrian

    My favorite time zone resource, timeanddate.com, shows
    New York Wed 7:06 AM
    Honolulu Wed 1:06 AM

    That would be 6 hours.

      It would be fair to say I don't know what time it is anywhere except in Cairns.

      Where I live is the only state in Australia that doesn't have daylight savings (because we didn't want our curtains to fade from that extra summer sunlight).

      Timezones confuse the hell out of me.

      I remember spending one new year's eve on a plan travelling from Australia to the USA.

      We kept crossing all these date lines.

      I swear we had midnight at least 3 times before landing...late...and having new year's again on the luggage carousel at LAX.

      So whatever you do don't ask me what time it is.

      I just don't know.

      Kindest regards,
      Andrew Cavanagh

      P.S. For Aussie readers...the time on the playschool clock is....
