Observing Earth Day

As in 2011 and 2012, I very much wanted to observe Earth Day by powering down my entire house for an hour between 8:30pm to 9:30pm our time. But my son was home this weekend and was busy with his exam-prep. I offered to keep the ‘power-on’ for today so he could continue with his work and maybe observe the ‘power-off’ tomorrow after he leaves to his own residence. He declined and said that the whole point was to encourage as many people across the globe to observe it all at the same time on the same date. And so hurray to us: him at the dining table working on his battery-powered laptop by a candle light and me reading by the candle light at the kitchen table. We even bundled up and shut down the heater, yeahhhhhhhh for an understanding son! Also, yeahhhhhhh to Earth Day!
