Earth Hour

Here's a tradition at our house, Earth Hour. Have you heard of it?

The first year we did Earth Hour was in 2007, the first 10 minutes of "going dark" was kind of boring and I thought how are we going to manage for an hour? Then we started playing cards by candle light and drinking a bit, and the time really flew by. I like this idea, its good to conserve and also just be reminded of how privledged we are to live with electricity on demand.

What are other things you do to conserve?

  1. I had every intention of doing it. Then totally forgot this weekend! I think we were actually out to dinner at the time, so technically our lights were all out!
