I hope everyone out there celebrated Earth Hour this year. For this years Earth Hour Jon and I played Wildcraft by candle light, then folded laundry. Sounds boring? maybe a little but it was just really nice to sit with Jon in our home without any distractions.
The disappointing part was that participation in our area was down this year. Between the hours of 8:30pm and 9:30pm energy consumption was down by only 1.04 percent. In 2008 energy consumption during Earth Hour was down by 2 percent. When we looked out our window we saw hardly any of our neighbours participating in Earth Hour. We really enjoyed Earth Hour and we are going to try to do an Earth Hour every month. Whether its a candle lit dinner, bath by candle light or sitting outside and just watching the stars for an hour. Maybe you might try it too.
