I sit in the dark with my high powered binaculars....I mean.....nothing. I contemplate the existence of nothingness.

it was ridiculous, i went out to get food, the minute i left, the entire power grid in my area dropped, EVERYTHING was out, street lights, traffic lights and general power.
I had to drive to a different grid to get mcdonalds because all the ones in my area were out.

So we come home like ten minutes ago, power's on everywhere except our street...
SO PISSED.
now it finally came on..but fuck...five hours..all our food is ruined.

Power went out here for about 10 minutes.

However, I do get a spectacular light show from the transformers outside my windows when they explode. It's like lightning

The power went out here for 4.5 hours.

I hope things kept in the fridge... I haven't had the nerve to check it yet.

I was at work, and I noticed the neighborhood go dark. Everyone came in to buy candles, it was humourous.

I think these moments are the most romantic of all. When there is no heat, but that of the bodies. And no light, but that of the candles....so much fun!

I just got back from a party (I live in T.O.) and everything was fine. I didn't even know about the storm until I left the place. I'm damn cold, but I'm home

our hydro only flickered on and off last night.
but a month ago there was an ice storm which left us without hydro for 48 hours - yes TWO DAYS
so quit your whinging about FIVE hours.... and just think back to when Quebec had the ice storm a few years ago and were without hydro for TWO WEEKs

fucking pussies

It's not over yet!! El-Nino is coming back!!!!!!!!

And about all that wasted food, time to get a gas stove so you can pig out during power outages.

Well, I don't know if the power went out here, cuz we were out in Jokeville (well, really, we were in k land...but that's another story). But the winds are still lashing at our building something fierce! It sounds like stormy ocean waves crashing in at the shore. Are we safe up here on the 12th floor? Our windows are rattling a lot, and stuff is flying by.

Last night when we drove down my mom's street in the Beaches, there was a huge old tree completely uprooted by the wind. Luckily it fell only on grass.
