So, the blizzard is still upon us. Midnight, last night, we got some flurries, and when I got up, briefly, around 3 o’clock in the morning, it was in full swing. Then I could still see a few cars at the local coffee shop, though.
When I got up ‘for real’ this morning, there was no water. This is not totally uncommon in this building, so at first I didn’t think much of it, but as I checked Twitter, I realized it was a big water main that was broken and it affected a large portion of the city. Sent some thoughts to the city crews that were out there, in blizzard conditions, working to have this fixed. Later today, I’ve seen pictures in the news, of Rothesay Avenue, where it happened and it looked more like a river than a, normally busy, street.
The water came back quickly, and at the same time I received a text message that we’re under a boil order. Understandable … it’s still brownish.
Took an iPhone photo out the window, but that didn’t do justice to this magnificent storm and neither did the other ones I took outside the main entrance later one with the real camera. I find it a little difficult to capture the full power of it, but these two I found half decent.
I don’t know how much snow we’ve got today and it’s still snowing. It’s hard to tell as it’s blowing so hard. When did they start to name winter storms, by the way?! I’ve never seen that until now, with this Nemo.
