Stream Cork City’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade & Daylight Savings Details

Can’t make it to Cork City for Saint Patrick’s Day? The parade will come to you — your computer, that is. Stream video of the parade starting at 9:00 a.m. EDT (6:00 a.m. PDT) — that’s 1:00 p.m. Cork time.

This actually seems like a perfect moment to remind readers that North America observes daylight savings on a slightly different schedule than Europe. So while most of the United States set their clocks forward one hour this past weekend (13 March), Ireland won’t spring forward until Saturday week (27 March). For those reading this who have friends, family, and colleagues in the States, it is helpful to know we’re only four hours apart from the Eastern time zone (Boston, NYC, Philly, DC, Florida) and seven hours apart from the Pacific time zone (San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle) until we switch our clocks. This next part is helpful to know if you have connections in Hawaii, Arizona, or Indiana:

“Daylight Saving Time, for the U.S. and its territories, is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, most of the Eastern Time Zone portion of the State of Indiana, and the state of Arizona (not the Navajo Indian Reservation, which _does_ observe). Navajo Nation participates in the Daylight Saving Time policy, due to its large size and location in three states.” from http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/
