How to read

When comparing your time with the opposite hemisphere, remember the
shift of one to summer and the other to winter time has a 2hr
difference effect. 

Worth bookmarking is: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

A great site is http://www.worldtimezone.com/ which will tell you
the current time anywhere in the world (use 24 hour clock setting to
remain sane - especially in the Pacific).

ALL changes (to or from DST) at ALL locations in the world

From a sunny blue sky IOM which suddenly plunged from +9c down to early morning -0.7c but is coveered in snow and ice - just as you'd want it for Christmas.
The snowdrops are out and the climbing rose bush is budding but it might have thought twice about that overnight
