In the dark

Monday night, the little snowstorm we had in Toronto knocked out all the power in our townhouse complex. For 15 minutes, we were plunged into darkness and silence.

It was a blissful 15 minutes.

Snow was gently falling, everything was shut down...finally some peace and quiet, so I could light a few candles and shoot a few photos of the snow outside. Sadly, the electricity came back on.

You know, it's almost a year since I cooked my Earth Hour dinner with some friends. I remember it so clearly - rabbit and wild mushrooms, served with a wonderfully rich Ribera del Duero. What was supposed to be an hour in darkness turned into 5. And I can't wait to do it again. This year, Earth Hour is schedule for March 27, at 8:30 pm. I think I want to prepare a sexy dinner.....asparagus and oysters?
