Kendra and I weren't at home during the 8:30 to 9:30 Earth Hour time, so we observed it from 9:30 to 10:30. It was storming so hard that we wondered if we would end up having an extended "earth hour". I lit so many candles that the house looked like a shrine. The dogs weren't quite sure what to make of it. I did take a call from my mother on the web cam because we have a standing date to do that each night. All in all, it was a whole lot more fun than reading Little House in the Big Woods!
