Well, to tell the truth, I really thought I nailed it last year, so I figure to do it the same for ‘011.
It goes without saying to have every light on of course, inside and out and all electronics fired up, (tip- turn the sound off on the TVs, then you can have all the radios on too).
Shower just before the big hour arrives – a session with the hair dryer is a great way to kick off the celebration.
Have plenty of laundry available so to have small loads going in both washer and dryer for the full hour, and get the oven on well ahead of time.
Halfway into Earth Hour – pop two TV dinners (would could be more apt?) into the well-preheated oven, then head out for a nice half hour cruise to nowhere in the SUV, windows down, AC on, tunes cranked, then back home to eat.
A friend of mine adds dropping by Price Smart where they have motion sensor lights in the frozen foods displays. He doesn’t buy anything, just spends a few minutes making the lights go on. Nice touch.
But however you observe Earth Hour, don’t just ignore it, let the Eco-fascists know just where you stand.
