The Lights are Out

Toronto Tory is reporting on the blackout in Toronto.

Reminds me of the time a few years ago when the power grid failed and all of Vancouver was in the dark. As I recall, my cousin and I had just finished watching the Red Wings beat the Canucks 4-2 at GM Place, and at a sushi place on Robson getting some late-night goodness. Before we got our order, all the power went out in the restaurant. The walk home in the dark was really quite something, and there were tons of cops out trying to direct traffic (both human and automobile!). Someone set fire to one of the dumpsters outside my cousin's apartment bulding, and the fire department had to come and put it out.

It was a memorable night, to be sure.
