Get current date and time not working correctly

I am trying to use 'Get current date and time' as part of a flow. I need to get the current date and do some magic to get the most recent Monday (including today). The problem I'm having is, when I run the 'Get current date and time' action, it assigns the value "1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM" to my variable. I've tried running this action by both setting a specific time zone and using the system time zone. Both return the same answer. Any suggestions on how to fix?

 

Running my flow on a virtual machine saved on a network server. The date/time on the virtual machine are correct.

Thanks for your help. I finally figured it out. I was using the action 'get current date and time' as a sub flow but not including it in my main flow. I guess I couldn't run that sub-flow separately, without running my main flow. After adding the sub-flow to my main flow, I get the expected values for the current date and time.
