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?
