TORONTO has power

After the whole night with power out and it finally coming back on here at around 4pm (almost 24 hours). We were told that Toronto (and most cities) only have about 24 hours worth of clean water in reserve (phew). Lots of people out and biking around, walking around. I think some people were expecting alot worse from the people of Toronto but we have pretty good so far. My fear was all Friday with people not going to work and maybe getting a little agitated from the heat (it's 38 Celsius here) that trouble would happen Friday night. We'll see. I've also heard that there is a good chance that power would be intermitten for the next couple of days. Fun. Anyways.

no power meant the whole community was enjoying the outdoors. This failure brought out the best out of us
