Earth-Hour at 8:30 Tonight

I guess this is the latest thing, although it’s been done in various places for a few years now. Everyone is supposed to turn their lights off for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., local time, wherever they may be. It’s a symbolic gesture to show support for environmental issues. I don’t remember this from last year, but last year at this time, we were getting ready to move into this house, so I didn’t keep up with the news very much.

I don’t know, we may do it just for the heck of it. I wish they would have made it at 8:30 a.m. though. With all the lights off, I’ll probably just go to sleep. If you want to read more about it, here’s a link and a video for you: http://sewickley.patch.com/articles/turn-off-the-lights-tonight-for-earth-hour
