Sunday at 2 a.m. we lose an hour of sleep but gain an hour of sunlight - but how does this play out in Indiana, our country's very own twighlight zone?

From USA Today:

Indiana lies along the westernmost border of the line that separates Eastern Time and Central Time zones. Of Indiana's 92 counties, 10 lie on the western side of this boundary line and are in the Central Time zone -- the same time as western Kentucky and Chicago. They practice daylight-saving time.

The remaining 82 counties lie in the Eastern Time zone, and of these, 77 remain on Eastern Time all year. They do not change their clocks. But five counties adjacent to Louisville and Cincinnati voluntarily adopt daylight-saving time, which creates the third Indiana time-keeping zone.

Confused? Even some Hoosiers are.
