Hell no! Hawaii is GMT -10. That means it is currently almost a day behind me (23 hours) or to put it another way: Hawaii is SO yesterday!
Right now it's 11:43am on Thursday 14th October 2025...............

So you're currently 21 hours behind me and it's about 8:45am yesterday where you live

Wait! The Line Islands are on +14 hrs!

From Wikipedia,

The International Date Line passes through the Line Islands. The ones that are part of Kiribati are in the world's farthest forward time zone, UTC+14:00. The time of day is (UTC-10.00), the same as in the state of Hawaii, in the United States, but the date is one day ahead of Hawaii. The time in the Line Islands is 26 hours ahead of some other islands in Oceania, such as Baker Island, which uses UTC−12:00.

That's what it is here: NZ is in Daylight saving time. I don't think Tonga does that as it's much closer to the equator.

The most Eastern part of New Zealand, the Chatham Islands, is currently at GMT +13.45. People flocked to NZ from all over the planet on Dec 31st 1999 so they could say they were among the first people in the world to see the new millennium. We made million$$$$!!!!

It was said at the time: Dec 31st 1999, that New Zealand was the place to be because people standing on our mountains 'saw' the first light of the new millennium before places like Kiribati which doesn't have real mountains.

But of course I didn't claim NZ was the closest to the date line, I calaimed that we were 'probably' the first on Dyxum to see the new day. Anyone on Dyxum registered in Kiribati?

The furthest west I have been is Hawaii too, like Roger. I've been to Anchorage, Alaska and the Kenai Peninsula also, but Hawaii is slightly further west.

We should do a "coordinated universal time" picture here at Dyxum one of these days. Some of us would be in darkness, others bright sun. I wonder if there is a comfortable time we could all take a shot at roughly the same instant?

furthest west?..... if you continue going West, you'll end up back where you started of course (apologies to Flat Earthers who will hit the Ice Wall and, if they can get past that: fall off the planet into deep space)

Dena, no issues reading the card you sent to me. Thanks again. Part of the charm of the postcard event is its analog nature -- stamps, handwriting, sorting machines, trucks, planes, mail carrier, mailboxes.

How big are those Lotus flowers, maybe 6" wide? They look massive! I need to do a road trip one day, see these in person.

Yes, at least 6 inches, or 8. The green herons were fishing under the giant leaves, I guess to keep them from casting a shadow. I've not seen this behavior and could not find any in google pix either. Not sure if I posted one here, will look.

Arkansas' nickname is "The Natural State". We have a lot of wildlife and natural areas, even dark sky. The Buffalo National River is true wilderness and the state parks are super.
