Circumstances are a little different this year. The polar opposite, actually. I am at home in one of the areas of the country that has been absolutely battered by the bitchiness of La Nina. When I was shoveling the walk this afternoon, I stopped, out of curiosity, to measure the height of the snowbanks lining the walkway. Past my waist. And it continues to snow. Eight days straight, I think this has been.
For Earth Hour this evening, the Spousal Unit and I are going to light candles, turn off the lights (and this laptop), and break out the Parcheesi game. I am making a slight concession, in that I have agreed to leave on the television, so that the Spousal Unit can watch the Flames lose.
Above all, we will not look out the windows.
Are you doing anything to observe Earth Hour?
