Blackout


These are the photos I took of myself in my apartment in the the beginning of the Black out that occurred not long ago in Toronto. The power was out in my apartment for 24 hrs on the coldest day of the year (so far) ! These photos were taken between the hours of 10:30pm and 3am. Hope you enjoy the brief play by play.


First Hour: "Yay, this is fun...I love candles!"


Third hour: "yeah..this..is...fun? All shall be well all shall be well all shall be well..."


Fourth hour:"O mi goodness...I wish I had a Coleman stove...."


fifth hour: "Pretty candles that I wish were electric"
**************************

In conclusion, Here is a list of things to have on hand in the case of a blackout in -28 degrees:
  1. candles
  2. a flashlight
  3. a lighter
  4. a big fuzzy hat or toque
  5. flannel Pyjamas and a big wool sweater
  6. a hot water bottle
  7. double socks
  8. a Coleman stove
  9. a book to read by candlelight
  10. a fire safety handbook
  11. long underwear
  12. a bottle of Shiraz
  13. a camera
  14. knitting needles and wool

The end.
