Earth hour 2008. Working the closing shift at JJ Bean on Main Street in Vancouver. We killed all the store lights for an hour and worked by candlelight. I was surprised at the number of customers who asked why we were doing it. That several people complained was no surprise. I know it was mostly symbolic, but it didn't look like anyone else in our neighbourhood participated.
I worked that shift with Jesse and Katie. Katie has moved to Toronto and I'm now in Halifax. Jesse is still working at JJ. I wonder if he is closing by candlelight tonight.
