Question of the Day

Daylight Saving Time

I have a Sql Server 2022 instance setup with '(UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)' as timezone and a PostgreSQL 16 cluster setup with 'America/New_York' as timezone; both of them have -05:00 as UTC offset. Given that in New York, in 2024 Daylight Saving Time will begin on Sunday, March 10, at 2 AM, what happens if I execute the following statements in their own environment? Sql Server:

select dateadd(HOUR, 1, cast('20240310 01:00:00-05:00' as datetimeoffset(0)));
PostgreSQL:
select date_add('20240310 01:00:00-05:00'::timestamptz, '1 hour'::interval);
