Did you participate in Earth Hour on Saturday? We did, sort of. All the lights were out, but Chris was reading something online and didn’t want to stop, so he kept that on. I used the glow of the computer to help me see (because we are idiots and have no candles!!!) I crocheted myself a headband. It felt cool to do something productive in the dark. I also enjoyed listening to the Johnny Cash station on Pandora radio.
I know, technically there shouldn’t be anything on, I get it, but I think the bigger point isn’t to live like you are Amish for an hour but to just reduce overall energy consumption for a day, globally. Maybe next year, when I remember that it’s Earth Hour more than a couple hours before it begins, I’ll be more prepared. Maybe we can get candles, and wine and a deck of cards or something.
