Why Yes, Our Lights Were Out...

...because we went for a walk around the Fremont/Centerville area from 8 PM to 9 PM tonight. I said to Cheryl, "Isn't that cheating? The City of Fremont didn't turn off the streetlights." Cheryl pointed out that we were simply taking advantage of lights that would have been on whether we were there or not. The point of Earth Hour wasn't really to sit home in the dark, but to make a point about energy usage.

Besides, after all of the potato chips I had before dinner, I really did need to get out for a walk to burn off some of that blood sugar.
