That's interesting. If you have to be at work at 7 a.m. (in a different time zone) you'd have to be out the door by 5 to get to work on time.

It would be pretty cool to live in a metro with two different time zones; but I don't know of any that are.

When I lived in Columbus, GA it was Eastern, but as soon as you crossed over to Phenix City in AL, it was Central. Was a bit annoying. Did they change it?

Not to my knowledge, at least as of 2005, when I drove I-20 all the way from Mississippi to Atlanta. You were in the eastern time zone as soon as you crossed into Georgia. I was always curious why they made that the boundary instead of the Mississippi-Alabama border. Alabama is more than far enough east IMO. They even put some of the Florida Panhandle in the central time zone I think

I agree that Alabama should've been in the Eastern Time Zone as well.

South Bend Indiana unless Indiana changed back to Eastern Time Zone, the suburbs in Michigan use to be a different time.

While legally in the Central Time Zone, Russell, and Chambers Counties, AL unofficially observe Eastern Time. Because of the amount of people that work back and forth between Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL; and between LaGrange / West Point, GA and Lanett / Valley, AL those areas all observe Eastern Time.

That is not accurate. After the Uniform Time Act was instituted in the 1960's, the parts of Indiana in the Central Time zone (Northwest Indiana and Evansville area) observed DST. It was only the parts of Indiana in the Eastern time zone that did not observe DST. The Louisville and Cincinnati suburbs in Indiana "unofficially" observed daylight savings time to keep in step with their larger city in the metro area.

All of Indiana now observes daylight savings time, so South Bend is now on the same time as Michigan year round.

Does this mean parts of Indiana are no longer on "fast time" while other parts of the state are on "slow time"?
