Was coming out of Rona yesterday just in time to see a tree fall on powerlines behind the film studio, short things out, and cause two large explosions.
My in-laws were in town from the Island and wanted to hit up IKEA today, so we headed over after lunch. Found that all the traffic lights on Brunette and Lougheed were out, and all surrounding business were without power, but IKEA was open, running on generators, albeit with much reduced lighting in the store. Even mother nature can't shut down those profit loving Swedes!
Never lost power, but had no Shaw Internet, TV or phone for almost 24 hours.
Craziest driving was at the intersection of Lougheed and Gaglardi on Saturday afternoon…full on chaos as everyone implemented their own interpretation of the four way stop procedure.
