Earth Hour Tonight

Earth HourTonight (Saturday, March 29th) from 8pm to 9pm I will be celebrating Earth Hour by turning off all of my lights and electronics.

On it's surface it appears to be such an insignificant action, and I acknowledge that it is. But ponder this: for an hour I will not be watching television or working on the computer. Now multiply that by the millions of households that are expected to celebrate Earth Hour and it begins to get significant.

At the very least it gets people thinking about how to reduce our energy footprint, and that is a good thing. Make sure to Sign Up if you plan to join (so they can get a good count of participants). Canada is kicking the ass of the United States in participation so far, so more people would be great.

    hmmmm…If Shannon was home I can think of something you could do for that hour..NO Shannon, NO Computer, NO Video Games, No TV..
    What are your possibly going to do?

    Indeed, that was my first idea for a good activity if Shannon was home (though what to do with the other 59 minutes). :)

    I think I will probably go outside and watch the sun go down with a beer (Libby will be in bed by this point). Then maybe read a book by candlelight? Or take a nap?
