As most of you know, Chile is on the other side of the hemisphere. In South America we’re in fall… as you North Americans enter Spring. Because of the earth’s tilt, you guys enjoy warmer weather and longer days as we enjoy (yes, I enjoy cold weather!!) the cold and shorter days. Because both the USA and Chile use daylight savings time, for half the year we are 2 hours ahead of EST and half the year we have the same time as EST. I know, it’s kinda odd!
This weekend, we “fall back”. So for the next 6 months we’ll be on the same hour as EST!
God’s creation is amazing, isn’t it??
