Turn it off BC

VANCOUVER/CKNW – The results from BC’s “Turn It Off” day are in. BC Hydro says during peak hours between 7 and 9 p.m. yesterday, it recorded a savings of approximately 70 megawatts or 1.2 million incandescent light bulbs being turned off for the entire evening.

BC Hydro says if British Columbians continued to turn off unnecessary lights and appliances during those hours, the savings would provide enough electricity to power 8000 homes for an entire year.

I turned off everything all day. I even got out my coffee press to use instead of the coffee machine, but I realized that I had no idea how to use it…and it probably would defeat the purpose if I turned on the computer to Google instructions for it.

In exchange for my awesome unpluggedness, I allowed myself to watch Lost…after all, it was the second-to-last episode of the season and after being unplugged all day, my eyes needed to return to their regular box shape.

Oh, I also had the radio on in the morning. Benson and I have a dance partay every morning, and he’s starting to develop an opinion. His opinion on my singing was expressed through a very Jen-like look of disgust and confusion. Now I know why Bill hates that face when I make it.
