RePower

While Flea Mansions lit up at a quarter to eleven last night it looks as though not all Annex dwellers were so lucky. Telephone reports indicate a slow westward march of power from Spadina and the Flea to midnight at Bathurst and creeping out to Christie by nine this morning. Ossington is still waiting...

I have a fire station around the corner and my hope is that the electricity people are plugging things back in with hospitals, police stations and the water-supply in mind. As "wake up" calls go this one has been easy so far. Let us hope we learn something from it. The rush to se-supply aromatic candles will tax the re-stocking ability of new age stores and our strategic mayonnaise reserve will need to be restored.
