It’s true what they say; everything is better in the morning. After a surprisingly restless morning, I’m up and ready to see what’s working today. Already I can tell you that most of Toronto is still shut down. Some things are back up and running, but there is such a strain on the power-grid that we can expect rolling blackouts for the next couple of days.
I talked with my mother back home in Jersey and she told me that most of the state was also in darkness, as well as Pennsylvania and New York. So yeah, we would have been screwed had we decided to take our road trip this weekend. (Maybe things happen for a reason.)
Tammy is hanging tough in midtown Toronto and other friends I talked to are making the most of the situation. The best thing to do is just relax and wait for the lights to come back on.
