After the Darkening of Earth Hour

At our house, there were a multitude of candles, about 11 buddies and pals of all ages, a bonfire, marshmallows, and revelry....and of course the lights were out Saturday night from 8:30pm -- 9:30pm for Earth Hour.  We were in the throngs of the citizens of the record-breaking 134 countries that also took part.

Other records:
  • Brazil went from 98 cities (in 2010) participating to 124.
  • Canada went from 304 cities (in 2010) to 422.
  • Across the USA, Girl Scout troops were notable with their leadership.
  • YouTube switched out their light in their logo during Earth Hour.
  • New York City flipped the switch for all 96 United Nation buildings, Broadway theatre marquees/signs, the Empire State Building, and bundle of buildings in Times Square.
