Good point.  It listed as CST, not EST.  Let's see if this copy from Que 
Tal! will work:

Time Table for Lunar Eclipse Events (all times CST)

P1:penumbral first contact	1921 - 23 March
U1:start of eclipse		2054 
U2:mid-eclipse			2239
U3:end of partial			0022 - 24 March
P2:penumbral last contact	0138
Local Times for Sunset and Moonrise
		Wash. DC	Kansas City	Denver	San Francisco
Sunset:	1824 		1834		1815		1825

So, you'll have to adjust your times from Central Standard time.  Looks like 
it'll be early enuf here for my kids to see it (barring snow again!)  jkc
