I just read that there is was a power outage in a section of Toronto. It’s not the Great Blackout of ’03, but we’ve been experiencing a lot of cold lately so it can get dangerous. It was -15c when I walked in to work this morning and though I’ve been wearing my parka all week, my face gets refridgerated pretty quick.
Awhile ago, in the dead of winter, my furnace died on me. It didn’t take too long to get it fixed but I could appreciate how quickly the cold starts seeping in. Fortunately for me, I still had electricity so I was able to use a space heater in one room and keep myself and my kitties in there. I hope that power gets fixed (edit: i’ve been updated, it’s fixed) for those Torontonians because living in the cold sucks.
