Power Outage

Close to Champlain heights area. It first hit about 15 mins ago, while I was taking a piss.

Phone's about to die, no wifi, what do?

Anyone else know this feel?

Light some candles and read a book



If you have a landline and a non cordless phone you could phone hydro (land lines usually have power as its totally unrelated to the mains) and wait half and hour to find out that they are aware of the situation and will be there when they can i.e 2-4 hours usually.

It was pitch black when I drove through that area. It was trippy and kinda scary. There were a few idiots who just flew thru the intersections without doing a 4 way stop. Some ppl dont know how to drive.

kids who depends on technology...

This is why candles are very important... next to hand powered flash lights... forget battery operated... once that dies your screwed also...

If you are smart enough to get candles,
Read book, do homework/study, play board games/cards or sleep?
