I think that's UTC-6h in northwest Florida (Central time zone), but
UTC-5h in peninsular Florida where Mike is (Eastern time zone). Or else
I'm confused. I grew up in one and live in the other, and between that
and keeping track of summer and winter times, I don't always get it right...
But anyway, Mike, be at your clock, or GPS, or whatever, at 23:59:59Z on
Dec 31. Don't forget your eggnog.
