I liked that during the whole thing, city hall had all their lights on. 
:unamused:

Nice shots, Lemrac, thanks.  I enjoyed Earth Hour.  As the light faded I was telling stories to my 5 year old while simultaneously trying to get my teenager to do the dishes (her chore).  A good time. :smile:

LOL, well everything comes in baby steps eh, at least they didn’t use neon lights for the Earth Hour signs… :smiley:

Hmm, just wondering there, I Hope all the signs were made of recylcable paper and tape…  :wink:

We powered down to one low-energy light and a candle for the hour-everyone sat and read, wasn’t a big deal but my fish were a little startled to have the lights in their tank off so early in the evening!  :smiley:
