Eye On Boise

Just a reporter, not a time traveler…

I understand there was some consternation last night that I was posting some legislative caucus election results before those votes had even occurred. That would indeed have been quite a feat. Alas, I am not a time traveler. Here's the explanation: My newspaper's servers are in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area, which is in the Pacific time zone. Yet I work in Boise, which is in the Mountain time zone, one hour later. So when I post an item on this blog at, say, 9:28 p.m. in Boise, the time stamp shows 8:28 p.m. - the time in Pacific time.

That means I'm not really posting this item now at just after 6 a.m., though after a long night last night, it feels that way. It's just after 7 a.m. in Boise.
