Changes in Latitude....

Sometimes it's really bizarre living south of the equator. Time zones illustrate one of the strangest realities of this...
See, we're two time zones east of the US east coast. This means that we are 1, 2 or 3 hours ahead of Eastern time.
During the US Summer months, the US is on Daylight Savings time, we are on Standard Time and we are one hour ahead. During the US Winter months, the US is on Standard Time and we are on Daylight Savings Time and we are 3 hours ahead. There is a period on either end of a few weeks in which we are only 3 hours ahead.
Weird, huh?
