From noon to 5 PM we drive
Finally at Grandma's we arrive!
But going home is much more fun.
We leave at 10 AM and are home by one (PM)!

What happened?


Answer

You crossed into a different time zone between "home" and "grandma's house". So the trip lasts 4 hours, but you have to add an hour when you travel east, then subtract an hour when you head west.
