How comes hasn't there been a British summer 2011?
because our weather is just annoying... it was pouring down an hour ago now its stopped completely just like that.. we are just unlucky.. but it always gives us something to talk about on the plus side :)
I have a turkey with defrosting instructions saying a cool room for 48 hrs ?
Just to be safe I would put the turkey in the refrigerator to defrost. You run the risk of salmonella poisoning by letting it defrost to room temperatue. If it is not fully defrosted on Christmas Morning I would put it in the sink and run cold water over it until you can pry its legs apart and take the giblets out that are usually packed inside. Then rinse the cavity and then you are ready to put the stuffing in.... I like mine with apple and sausage meat.
roast for 20 minutes a pound at 325 degrees until done.
I am getting so confused.... I need help with time zones?
I have added a source for a world time zone map that should help to visualize the situation
Time in the British Isles is 6 hours earlier than is the USA's Central Time Zone.
If it's 3 PM in Chicago, or Kansas City or Dallas, then its 9 PM in London, Birmingham, Dublin or Glasgow.
Be careful about "CST" and "BST." CST means that the Central Time Zone is NOT on daylight savings time. CST is Central Standard Time; Central Daylight Time is CDT. Most countries (US States) go to daylight savings at about the same time each year.
The situation can be confusing in the case of Arizona which does not go to daylight savings. So when the rest of the USA adds an hour in the spring and subtracts an hour in the fall, Arizonians don't touch their clocks. What happens in that they go from Mountain Time Zone to the Pacific Time Zone. You could also say that when Denver, Cheyenne and Boise go to MDT, Arizona stays at MST.
The map will help explain this.
What angle should the gnomon on a wall-mounted sundial be?
To quote the website noted below...
Wall mounted sundials require a south facing wall and will only be truly accurate if they have been specifically designed for the aspect they are used on.
But to answer your question... I would assume that you would look at your watch and move the gnomon until it reads the same time.
How many days on average does it rain in england in the summer?
England has no season when the weather is predictably wonderful. On average there are 42 rainy days in England during the Summer (June, July, August). London, England avgs. 138.6 mm of rain during the Summer while further North at Carlisle they avg. 177.7 mm of rain during the Summer months.
I live in Cancun, i could tel you but it`s depend what do you want to found or do in Cancun, if you are a group of young people the best time is spring break, but you said you cannot, so i should tell you the May-August time is very nice.
What is the layman term for the time zone right now in the UK?
Like the others said.
Sometimes we use BST, not British Summer Time.
For example, in a few weeks, the clocks change again. So to distinguish times at 1am (ie TV programmes) they'll state whether it's GMT or BST
It depends on what you mean by summer. In the northern hemisphere the first day of summer is technically June 21.. But summer could also mean "summer vacation" which would be when ever school lets out.
BST is GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) + 1 hour during the summer months. Now you want to know what the time is in the U.S. when it is 19:45 (7:45 PM) BST? There are four time zones in the contiguous U.S., so you need to be a tad more specific. In the Eastern States, it would be 2:45 PM EDT. Subtract one hour for each of the other three zones (CDT, MDT, PDT).
does the city of greenwich uk observe british summer time and move their clocks forward 1 hour?
Greenwich is not a city,its a district of London that houses the Greenwhich observatory.and yes it observes british summer time by moving its clocks forward one hour in spring and one hour back in autumn
Yes, Germany does also change the clock, on the same day and time indeed.
So it will be normal for her.
Germany is just one hour different from England, year round now.
(Used to be different dates to change in the past.)
i need help converting British summer time to usa eastern time?
Britain is 5 hours ahead of USA Eastern time & 8 hours ahead of USA Pacific time so.....
1.) 12:00AM BST to USA Eastern time is 7:00PM.
2.) 9:00PM BST to USA Eastern time is 4:00PM
3.) 2:00AM BST to USA Eastern time is 9:00PM (the day before).
It's 6 hours later than Central Time, so 12 noon CDT is 6 p.m. BST - until the early morning of October 30th when BST ends and Britain goes on GMT, so 12 noon CDT is 5 p.m. GMT for a week or so, until Daylight Saving ends in North America, then 12 noon CST becomes 6 p.m. GMT.
When the clocks go back into British Summer Time...?
It depends on your mobile. Some will change automatically and many others won't. It will be best to manually set your mobile the hour early and if it is automatic, then you wake up an hour early. It is best not to assume your mobile when automatically change your time, especially if you need to be at work by 6am.
All of the UK is ahead of PST by 8 hours, so if it were 4pm PST then it would be midnight BST. This link is good for finding the time anywhere in the world at the same time as where you are...
It goes back to the war effort and the conservation of energy. Most countries choose to have a "Daylight Savings Time" (as we call it here in the states). Since people alter their schedules so that the work is done while the sun is up (an hour's difference), less energy is used. This was initiated during, at least in the states, during the war.
im quite happy with this actually, jack still went to bed at 7.30pm but didnt get up untill 9.30 (so 8.30 winter time) lol. but this morning i had to wake him up at 8am as i had to work.
im dreading it when it goes the other way :(
The clocks must have gone forward first because British Summer Time(BST) is 1 hour ahead of Grenwich Mean Time (GMT). So BST is GMT+1.
Britain was just on GMT before BST started.
If time had gone back first we would alternate between GMT and GMT minus one (GMT -1).
So the very fact that we in the UK alternate between GMT and GMT+1 means that we must have gone forward first.
Where I live, if there were no Summer Time, it would be broad daylight at 4 a.m. in June and July and dark by 8.30 p.m. Far better for it to become light at 5 a.m. and dark at 9.30 p.m. After all, for every person up and about at 4 a.m. there must be 100 people up and about at 8.30 p.m. Why not let the majority benefit from the extra daylight?
