Turn Out Your Lights! Now!

March 28th, 2009 (08:38 pm)
cheerful

current mood: cheerful

Earth Hour has started, and I'm sitting in the dark until 9:30. Unfortunately, when I look outside my door, it seems that the lights are glaring from the windows of most of the other houses on the street. It's rough being a trailblazer.

**************************************************

UPDATE: Some of the neighbors' houses went dark a little after my original note; I guess they were just running late. It's over now and my lights are back on. But now I'm thinking of turning them off and going to bed early.

I turned my front porch light off, but it doesn't make much difference in my neighborhood, either. However, if the power keeps going wonky, Mother Nature will take care of it for us. (Heavy snow is taking down power lines all over town...)

You have snow? Wow. I had no idea. The Midwest is pretty much a screwed-up place, weather-wise, isn't it? Are you getting any flooding too, like I'm seeing from farther north? It rained a little here today, but it was warm. Should be near 70 degrees tomorrow.

As for Earth Hour, some of my neighbors may have gotten into the act a little late. Several houses seem to have gotten dark after my original post. I guess I should update it.
