I'm in Scarborough. We had 4 shootings, 6 stabbings, 3 car jacks 1 house jack and 1 kidnapping.

But the power stayed on!!

Yeah, my residence didn't have any power starting last night around 9:30/10 p.m. - it was interesting. Some of the undergrad. kids really got nervous. The only good thing to come out of this entire effing ordeal is that I didn't have to go into the lab. today - 3 day weekend, hurrah! I am now warm at the parents place in Mississauga.

Hope you guys get your power back soon.

Well, speaking for my experience, when I went in to check in on the undergrads. on my floor, I did see find quite a few doors closed. Now, the occupants may have been away, or they could have been doing things that I don't want to think about.

after sex you'd freeze.

i've slept under the stars at -30 before (i had the gear for it) and i don't think i've gone to bed without a window open since. you feel so much clearer in the morning.

To this day I sleep with my window open. My g/f hates it but since my body is always hot (I die in the summer, even when it becomes 20C) she's learned to cope with it.

But for me, the colder it is, the more I enjoy it.

Downtown? Wasn't it in North York?
