Earth Hour Was A Big Success…Who Knew?


 I sent a twitter tweet about Earth Hour which was March 27, 2010 at 8 pm. I guess with my
  email overload situation I missed all the buzz about Earth Hour until the day before.
  According to
SoutheastGreen.com Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed was the official Honorary Chair
  for Earth Hour Atlanta. And there were major corporations and organizations participating
  and supporting the initiative to have lights turned off from 8 pm to 9pm on Saturday March 27.

 



 

 It was a big to-do in the metro Atlanta viewing area!
