Time zone anomalies: Not everyone springs forward

We have all learned the phrase “Spring forward, fall back” to remind ourselves twice a year to turn our clocks ahead or back one hour. But did you know that not all states make the switch? Hawaii and most of Arizona do not observe Daylight Saving Time.

To add to the confusion, 13 states in the U.S. have two time zones. Tennessee, Kentucky and South Dakota are nearly divided in half with two time zones. That means when you drive from Nashville to Chattanooga, if you leave at 9 am, you’ll arrive at 10 am, even though it’s a two-hour drive.
