    I do plan to video the NIST computer clock at 8 PM EDT as well as listen
    to the ticks (new UTC to UT1 double clicks).
    
    As my RCC attempts to sync at midnight mountain time--2 AM EDT-- I
    imagine the NIST broadcast time and time displayed by my RCC will be out
    of sync (past the regular drift) for four hours. I will video the 2:00
    reset as well to see if the RCC does a 02:59:60, 02:00:00 reset.
    
    My real concern is whether I will be sluggish and disoriented (more than
    usual) the day after due to the time change ;-)
