Stormy Vancouver

I haven’t been outside of the office all day. I brought my own lunch today, sat in the kitchen and did a crossword. It’s not that I feared going outside. I can actually get half way across town through various passages and Pacific Centre Mall. I got back to my desk and opened up a browser winder. I have the Vancouver.com webcam on my customized Google homepage and this is what I saw.

People in the Lower Mainland, South Coast and on the Island should be preparing for another storm although many have not yet recovered from the last pummeling.

Thousands of people who have been without power for days are being warned by B.C. Hydro that they may want to leave their homes before the next big storm hits the South Coast on Thursday night.

There are 22,000 families still without electricity, and B.C. Hydro spokeswoman Elisha Moreno warns that some of them, especially in smaller remote communities, might not get power back before the next storm hits [CBC]

Make sure you have flashlights (with fully charged batteries) and candles ready this weekend. It’ll be another doozy.

    Thanks for the webcam link. It’s very cool. I had no idea.
