We should just do what Abbotsford does and install roundabouts EVERYWHERE. #roundabouts #stupididea

I've heard some areas are not expected to have power back until tomorrow afternoon, now. Marine from Boundary to Victoria Drive, all the traffic lights were still out as of 2pm, as well.
Doesn't help the fact you got people just walking across the intersction lol. Is funny coz I saw a ton of cars who doesn't care about the 4 way stop and just keep on going and they got horn at. Is common sense.

Still no power!! Fuuuuuuuck! They teased us last night and turned it on at 11pm only for it to go down again during the night. Fucking bullshit. So much food wasted.

Power still down up on SFU.
Our backup generators went down in the middle of the night and one of the elevator doors are half open, that means someone may have been in it when the power went out.
Luckily for them, it wasn't 5 seconds earlier.

I had to manually open all the gates in our condo this morning. Fuuuuuu.....

I'm thinking that many restaurants are getting great business during the past few days of this windstorm. The White Spot on Lougheed and Clarke had a huge line up of customers on Saturday at 9pm.

The POS terminals were down though. Some Richmond restaurants would do well during this time if it's "cash only" service.

A former neighbour in Pitt Meadows said the block with McDonald's was the only part that had power yesterday, and the lineups for the drive-thru were running about an hour.

Doomed, I tell you.

I was up Indian Arm Saturday/Sunday and we had power thanks to our little generator. Was one of the gnarliest boat rides I've been on getting out to the cabin.

Parents said we never lost power at our place but had a couple trees blow down in the backyard. Also, I didn't have any cell coverage in Lynn Valley Sunday night.

The churches chicken on North Rd had a lineup out the door on Saturday.

I agree, we are doomed if/when the big one hits.

I wonder how quickly the generators fly off the shelves this weekend!

I think micro turbine generators on natural gas is the way to go.

So many places were closed on the weekend. There were a lot of pockets of power outages. In Coquitlam, uur pub of choice, Woody's, was closed. So, we tried out Jon B's on Austin and Blue Mountain, and I think it's our new favorite place . Pitcher and a dozen wings for $15 sold us.

We didn't experience any power outage, but our internet has been down for more than 50 hours.

dammit i'm working through lunch
$15 pitcher and wings?? Y U DO DIS

i'd kill for some right now.


reading the news and saw something about how some 13 year old girl celebrated her bday in the dark


Came back from a wedding with no power, no running water all weekend. Only access to the venue was blocked by fallen trees three times. Tried renting generators but they were all gone within an hour of the outage.
Ceremony and dinner was in the dark with nothing but flash lights and glow sticks
I've been to a few memorable weddings but this one takes the cake.

There was more than enough booze to last the weekend

If/when that day happens, gonna be total chaos. People already struggling with no power for a few hours and days.. Given the magnitude of the big one. We will all be totally fucked.
