GMT: Fri 3:05 pm
UK: Fri 4:05 pm
US Eastern: Fri 11:05 am
US Central: Fri 10:05 am
US Mountain: Fri 9:05 am
US Pacific: Fri 8:05 am
Kuwait: Fri 6:05 pm
Abu Dhabi: Fri 7:05 pm
Dhaka: Fri 9:05 pm
Darwin, Australia: Sat 12:35 am
Sydney, Australia: Sat 1:05 am

I'm a bit surprised that Jamaica's time is an hour behind US EST.

The one hour difference between us and the US EST is that the US usually goes to Daylight Saving Time, where they push forward their clocks by one hour during the spring and on into the summer.

We used to do that in Jamaica, because it was thought that we could save energy if the evenings were longer, hence street lights and such would come on later.

The mornings used to be preety dark though. Quite a while ago we just abanoned it.

The weather is HOT, sunny and windy.

We should get in all 5 days.

I will be at Sabina on Saturday and Sunday

Will post pics on www.windiesfan.com
