In the words of the immortal Norman Greenbaum, "Skyline fading away from me. Can't no longer see the skyline.." OK! Lights Out San Francisco wasn't that dramatic and the actual energy reduction figures aren't in yet, but the skyline definitely looked a little darker as I rode back from Marin last night around 8:50pm. The Golden Gate bridge towers were dark. Alcatraz was dark. City Hall was dark. The Bay Bridge was half-lit
. My business school
classrooms were dark. The Trans-America triangle disappeared into the night sky. People in the Bay Area probably noticed Google's darkening their page for Bay Area residents
A really great before and after photo of San Francisco is here
I heard the party in Dolores Park was a lot of fun. Ongoing pictures and commentary are posted here
If you missed this Lights Out, San Francisco, mark your calendars for the next one
on March 29, 2008.
