So Toronto just got hit by an ice storm. I'm fine, everyone I know is fine, last I heard on the news there were no serious injuries or deaths, but a shitload of traffic lights are out - I took the bus to my grandma's and although I wasn't looking on the way there, on the way back there wasn't a single working traffic light on the route - and large swathes of the city don't have power. The icicles hanging from the power lines look like Christmas decorations.

I'm one of the lucky few who has both mostly reliable power and mostly reliable internet, but that might change if the wrong tree falls down, so don't fret too hard if you don't hear from me for a little while.

Glad you're okay. I also got off lucky. If you lack power at any point, my place has it.

Awesome. <3 Lemme know if you need somebody to haul groceries for you anytime soon - if the ice isn't clear on your sidewalks yet, I'm betting the walk to the grocery store will be the opposite of fun. And you know how much I love doing yuor grocery shopping. (I have such weird interests.)

I should possibly do grocery shopping today, as I think things might be closed tomorrow. And yet. There is an option of not leaving my house and making burgers and pizza come to me, and I wouldn't even feel that guilty because I spent all weekend running around in the woods.

I think the sidewalk is clear—I saw someone doing it a few hours ago—but if it's not, I shall hit you up on that offer.

I had pretty much no power all day yesterday. Boo.

Yep. Came back around 3am, I think. On the plus side (I think) I now know the excitement of showering by candelight with cats.
