VERY interesting article about a possible big change in how California's see things...incandescently, or flourescently!?
Ban traditional light bulbs? California eyes idea
Brett went through and changed a bunch of our bulbs to the flourescent variety a year or two ago. While they're definitely a "feel good" type thing (knowing we're saving electricity, putting out less heat, etc), one of the problems with them that just drove me nuts is that they sort of have to warm up...
It's dark, you flip on the light switch, and you just sort of feel like there's a haze in the air. Sure, it's subtle, and they DO warm up and get to their full brightness, but I found it to be a little annoying... (Besides, I get up while it's still dark out!)
That minor gripe aside, I'm all for this! Maybe California's going to keep leading some of these trends (did they ban smoking first? It's NICE going out and not having to deal with smokers anymore!)
