earth hour

From 8:30 to 9:30 we turned our most optional electrical things off (TV, computers, stove, microwave, lights). The fridge and freezer stayed on, and the furnace kept us cozy and warm (it's gas with electric thermostat and ignition). We lit candles and played "YUM." It was a lightweight way to perk up our awareness of how much we take for granted the seemingly limitless supply of cheap energy that's available to us. It also reminded us how distracting the electronic stuff is. When is the last time we played a board game together on a Saturday night?

question: how did you observe earth hour?

mompoet - pass the dice!
