A dark and spooky power outage

A winter storm came through Edmonton with some heavy snow on Thursday. Because of whatever reason, my apartment building lost power for a large portion of the day. Goodbye fridge and freezer contents. I had a lunch date at noon, which is when I finally ventured into the darkened building… but even when I returned, it was creepy and for the first time oddly silent and completely devoid of other people. It was a surreal experience, and I just wanted to compile my overdramatic tweets and some replies all in one handy place. So here it is, the spooky power outage:

Creepy stairwell

I forgot, silly me, that I can’t take the elevator when the power is out. Yay for 16 flights of stairs?

I fled to my friends house after the elevator incident and we watched Sherlock season 2. Definitely not a bad way to spend a Thursday afternoon.
