1. I set my laptop machine to east coast time (TZ=America/New_York)
2. I set retirement time for a vm to February 1-st, 6:10 AM (still east coast time)
3. In rails console:

> vm = VmOrTemplate.find_by :name => 'amaya-at'
> vm.retires_on
=> Fri, 01 Feb 2019 11:10:00 UTC +00:00

Which I'd say is perfectly correct.

Drew, do you still see this problem on our end in current master? Or is perhaps my
understanding of the described problem incorrect?
