Good question, but no.  The change to DST occurred early Sunday 
morning.  This event occurred early Monday morning and I noticed it

(PS - If you email me and don't get a quick response, don't be concerned.
I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy mailing lists and
such.  I don't always see new messages very quickly.  If you need a
reply and have not heard from me in 1 - 2 weeks, send your message again.)
