Tonight (8:30pm) is the night people from around the world will be turning off their lights for earth hour. You'd be amazed at how much electricity just that one hour saves - maybe we'll breathe a little easier for a second. Kudos to The Nevis Historical & Conservation Society (NHCS) for recognizing the event and organizing a moonlight beach party on Oualie beach. If you participate, you might want to wait a bit before turning the lights back on so you don't overload the grid system. Exactly 9:30pm - flip your switches - poof!
Of course, I get to knock of 20 minutes since the electric company decided to pull power on us. Of course, I was in the middle of baking brownies for friends that lost their 2nd pet in 6 months. Whaa. Now I can give them dried out, crunchy brownies to commemorate the event.
Thanks to and Tina (FL), JD (AZ), and William (Culebra, Puerto Rico) for their shout out (send in your pics folks - just 3 is just sad!). Remember, if you've got a copy, let me see you! Note the Canadian Amazon date of arrival: April 2nd - wahoo! You Brits can't be too far behind. Kittitians, I'm still working on it (more excerpts).
