#blackout #toronto There was a blackout in Toronto today. I was busy surfing the internet at work when I heard what sounded like a rumble, like a giant ship crashing slowly into a wooden dock. The office went black, there was brief pause, as people though perhaps it was a short glitch or they blinked for a little too long. I looked outside the window and noticed the traffic lights were off, but the TTC was still running. This made me realize that it was not a city wide issue. Immediately my officemates went on their mobile phones checking twitter for the latest news.
They should make twitter a news station. Just have confirmed locals just like they do for celebrities.
