Kurt:

I added more comments to your 3D plotting goal.

Since programming in Mathematica is different teritory for you I would like 
to suggest that you
place you questions in terms of the full project you are trying to 
accomplish.


For example post the actual line from raw data before it is massaged by any 
outside programs.

And then post your final goal.

It seems like you have built many smaller functions to perform some parts of 
you project. For example "julianDayModified". But you will find that the 
folks in this group are more than helpful when they get the entire picture.

It seems that your "hour" functions have more to do with TimeZones than 
complicated rules of
-6 and 24. If you use the timezone correctly, the date part will adjust 
accordingly.
