Daylight savings time sucks...  :/...
 Is there a way to Reference UTC and then do  the calculating
n and then convert to local time zone if  you are worried about
calculating yesterday on the edge case of the 2 hrs a year
that this would make an impact...

as a side issue would  avoiding running this particular job
between 11PM and 1am  prevent the edge case from having
an impact
Peace out
