Then go find out why flowscan is generating wrong timestamps.
Perhaps flowscan is using the wrong timezone.

That's just how it works.  Just accept it as a given.  ALL times are

Then keep searching.  There has to be a wrong setting somewhere, or else
the rest of the world would have the same problems as you have.  They don't.
