Legal Alien: A Scotsman in Montreal

Solidarity brothers!

The power has gone off twice today in my apartment. The first time it went off, after about 15 minutes, I decided to take a walk to see if anywhere else was being affected. To my chagrin, it appeared to be localised to my block - the lights at the top of St Marc weren't working, but that was just about the only other evidence of anything being amiss.

It came back on after a while, lasted about an hour, before cutting out again. This time it was only down for about half an hour, but it is proving to be mildly disconcerting. I'm glad I use a laptop so it just cuts to battery when the mains supply goes down - no catastrophic shut downs for me thank you very much!
