  1. @dcousineau Arizona is in the Mountain Timezone and does not

    observe daylight savings time except in the Navajo Indian Nation.
  2. @dcousineau America/New_York: Dearborn & Ohio America/Chicago: Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Newton,

    Porter, Gibson, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh, & Warrick America/Kentucky/Louisville: Clark, Floyd, & Harrison Counties in Indiana NOT on America/Indiana/*
  3. @dcousineau Use ISO-8601 in transit & let the browser handle

    the rest. Treat it like a11y, give the browser / user control.
  4. @dcousineau Be explicit about context with your user. If this

    is confusing for you, it’s worse for them.
