Earth Hour 2010

Sunday, March 28, 2010
For Earth Hour last year, I spent a fabulous evening eating fish and chips, drinking cider and kicking some English/Italian butt at Scrabble. This year however was a bit more subdued. Mom and I had planned on an hour filled with ice cold Strongbow and a few cutthroat games of Yahtzee. Unfortunately we were both too pooped to party. She headed to bed at 8:10. I managed to stay up a bit longer. At twenty past, the laptop was turned off and put away. Five minutes later the candles were lit and the lights turned off. I spent the next half hour outside on the balcony (it was a gorgeous 14C today!), wearing shorts and a hoodie - not even any shoes or socks, it was heavenly. Just me, a candle and little Rocky checking out the view. Sadly the only noticeable difference I could see in the skyline of Edmonton as that the Muttart Conservatory had turned out it's external coloured lights. I understand that the Legislature and City Hall were planning on turning out their lights but I couldn't see from our place. I attempted to spend the second half of earth hour reading by candlelight but since all we had were tea lights, it didn't go so well. So, instead, I went to bed.



How did you spend Earth Hour?

I'm embarrassed to admit I fully forgot about the EH this year and was at a concert. Oopsy doodle.

Well, it certainly wasn't 14 degrees here! I spent an hour in the candlelight fiddling with different settings on my camera trying to take pix of the candlelight. Not very exciting.

It was a candlelit dinner. We made a raw vegan meal that was delicious. And like previous Earth Hours we enjoyed the quiet so much that we were reluctant to turn the lights back on.

If only we all did it every week. That would be something wouldn't it. I think we need to think about our energy consumption more often, don't you?

For the second time in a row, this year we had guests for Earth Hour. We just sat around the dinner table chatting and trying to control the flow of wax from the nine candles!

Our neighbours (not the horrible ones) were not even at home, but they had left the light in the kitchen on...

I was in Vancouver, and we walked down to English Bay and walked along the ocean, hoping to see lights dimmed all over the skyline. But there was little evidence of that. In fact the spotlight was still shining upon the inukshuk on the beach. I guess they didn't want anyone to bump into it?
