How would I make this query subtract 3 hours to offset a time zone difference? Our server which holds the data is on EST but I want the data pulled from this query to be PST. Thank you.

$t_query = "SELECT SUM(Total) AS num FROM orders WHERE date_purchased > CURDATE()";

Sorry about that:

$t_query = "SELECT SUM(Total) AS num FROM orders WHERE date_purchased > (CURDATE() - INTERVAL 3 HOUR)";

mysql> select curdate() - interval 3 hours;
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'hours' at line 1

mysql> select curdate() - interval 3 hour;
+-----------------------------+
| curdate() - interval 3 hour |
