As best as can be determined, the time jumping seems to have started this past Monday.
Local residents didn’t start talking about it until Wednesday because many thought someone in their home put the clocks ahead or it was an isolated incident.
Local media became aware of the situation when about 10 residents in the Blind River area called an Elliot Lake radio station Wednesday morning asking staff if they knew why the clocks in Blind River were jumping 10 minutes ahead.
What type of clocks that are affected appears very specific: electrically-powered digital clocks on stoves and microwaves, as well as clock radios. VCR or television clocks don’t appear to be affected. [continued]
Just in time, North Shore fast-clock mystery solved
http://www.saultstar.com/webapp/sitepages/content.asp?contentID=70740&catname=Local+News [Broken]Blind River — It took some time, but the mystery of the speeding clocks has been solved.
Since Monday, residents from Spragge to Thessalon have been waking up about 10 minutes early each morning because their electric-powered clocks were running fast. Calls to municipal officials and even Hydro One failed to find a reason why time was flying on the North Shore.
It turns out that also since Monday, the Spragge-to-Thessalon corridor has been disconnected from Hydro One’s Ontario power grid because of a planned power outage. [continued]
