...and we're back. It's been awhile since I've had a power outage longer than my UPS keeps things running (only second time in the 3 years I've run this instance) but makes me want to put a big battery bank in some day so I can run for over an hour.
@msh I'm at my gas station job in the NW. I live in the NE. The trains aren't running and roads are closed. My coworker's struggling to get here so I'm staying past my shift. Currently wondering how I'm gunna get home...
@msh Also, I rely solely on Transit for transportation.
@Lofenyy NE Calgary from Whitehorn to Saddle Ridge is a real shitshow. Large hail damaged cars and homes, then clumped into blocks of ice that blocked storm drains and caused flash flooding.
The flooding caused a substation fault and cascading power failures throughout the north end of the city including much of the northeast LRT line...but given flooding in the streets the LRT might be the most reliable way home when it gets running again.
Hope you can get home alright.
@msh Made it home! I've got pics! You were right, LRT was nice and reliable. My poor coworker tried to get here while the LRT wasn't running.
How'd you know all of this so soon?
