Well. It's still a mess.

Halifax that is. At least the part that I have seen. But I will commend the power company for doing such a fine job, at Glengary we had power yesterday afternoon at around 5pm. I, however, wasn’t there to realize that fact until about 9pm. I was out having a great hot meal at Marc’s place. It was quite a relief to see the lights on in the building as I walked up and even more of a relief to take a hot shower and fire up my computer. The funny thing is that despite all of my sleeping over the past few days, I am very tired here at work today. That is another thing that I may not have mentioned, Dal staff was called back to work yesterday and so I was here yesterday working. Of course, I wasn’t really expecting to be working - although I am glad that I was - so it was a very weird day. Needless to say, the building is empty except for those die hard grad students and a few others that I’m moderately convinced live here.

In my trip down to Barrington Street last night I saw some of the damage in that area. It was pretty bad on some streets. However, I can see that considerable progress has been made towards getting some of it restored and that is a good thing. I guess that barring some weird issue, my life is more or less back to normal. I do have to clean all the spoiled food from my fridge and get some new food, but other than that, I’m back in action. Cheers.
