My husband and I had to compromise. He really, really wanted to go to the movies and I wanted to be home for Earth Hour. He argued if we went to the movies, we wouldn't be using any lights at home, but I wanted to symbolize my solidarity with the environmental movement, so...
We went to an early movie and celebrated Earth Hour from 9-10.

So... the pilot voted for global warming, and you were okay with that?

I cheated a bit, but we were out during Earth Hour. I did not however leave any lights on inside, only the front porch light so we could see the keys when we got home!

We went to Flat Top (a great healthy stir fry place) and had dinner by candle light as the restaurant honored Earth hour by having lights out.

I guess they had an accidental power outage at one of their locations a few years ago, and instead of closing... they lit candles. The customers really liked it, so each year on Valentines day they have candle light service. So this was one more opportunity for them to serve this way.

I feel terrible. I completely forgot ! However, I have been really good about turning off lights that I don't use. And I turn off the TV when I'm on the computer.

I'm getting better !

;)

Hey! Tonight is Earth Hour! Turn off your lights from 8:30 to 9:30pm (local time) to bring awareness to the climate change crisis.

Never heard of Earth Hour? Here's a link:
www.worldwildlife.org/

Ideas for Earth Hour:
* Dinner by candlelight
* Candlelit Bubble Bath
* Sit outside and watch the stars
* Tell ghost stories by a fire or under the blankets with a flashlight

Whatever you do this evening, enjoy!
