Time changes for summer time / daylight saving time in the northern
hemisphere are beginning **this upcoming weekend**, with the change
on Sunday (March 11) to Daylight Saving Time in most of the United
States and Canada and in some nearby areas, which means clocks in
those areas move forward one hour. Next week, meetings whose times
are fixed to US time will start one hour earlier for those in time
zones that are not changing (and then change again if and when local
time changes for the attendee).

It may be helpful to note the time zone change when scheduling and
announcing meetings. Starting Sunday (March 11), California time is
designated as PDT, Pacific Daylight Time, UTC-07:00, or UTC-7. This
means that 11:00 PDT is 18:00 UTC.

A few of the large time changes this season are:

Most of the US and Canada and some surrounding areas move forward
one hour on Sunday, March 11 (2018-03-11). (The large areas that
don't change are Hawaii, most of Arizona, and most of
Saskatchewan.)

Europe (except Iceland, Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan,
Georgia, Crimea, Donetsk, Luhansk, Turkey, and Northern Cyprus)
moves forward one hour on Sunday, March 25 (2018-03-25).

New Zealand and South and southeastern Australia move backwards
one hour on Sunday, April 1 (2018-04-01).

What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
