Blackout!

As of  roughly 4:20 this afternoon, the entire city of Toronto, most of Ontario and from what I understand, all the way down to New York City, has suddenly been hit by a massive blackout. There’s something to be said for having a backup generator, but I don’t know how long it will last.  Still, I’ll never snicker at my mom again for getting it for me.

Nobody has any power and even so-called fail-safe things like traffic lights, subways, streetcars and large buildings downtown are effected. TV is obviously not working so the only source of information comes from radio and the internet, if you have a way to run it, that is. It’s a creepy feeling seeing everyone moving about when there’s no power. The city seems a lot quieter than it did before.

I’m going to save what energy I have in this generator and go check on a few friends. On a selfish note, I can’t help but think that this is going to somehow screw with my plans to see Freddy vs. Jason tonight.
