HOLY SHIT
There is no power in all of the Eastern Seaboard!I

no one knows what happened yet.
But I was sitting at work and suddenly the power went out.
And I had to walk down 36 flights of stairs (wobbly legs).
A bike courrier whizzed by and shouted: "This is fuckign Robinson Caruso!"
No traffic lights.
No one to direct traffic.I would do it if I had a whistle and actually understood traffic laws.
then I saw someone at king and spadina directing traffic.
Cars inching by.
I walked my bike.
Thank God I live downtown.
Is anyone trapped in the CN TOWER?
I saw a woman all shocked panicky ask another to use her cellphone
but the network is down.
I am off to Kensington Market to meet up with friends.
I have a digital camera and a bicycle and I want to explore!

More later.
it is 5:23 pm.
