Power & the people
Many thanks to the Quebec Hydro crews for their all important help in restoring power to those who lost electricity in Halifax and across the province, from our recent “winter hurricane.” Attached pic shows them at a Tims refuelling, Robie and Young Streets, prior to heading back to la Belle Province.

Don’t believe the Nova Scotia Power Outage reports, they badly under-report outages. I lost power at about 7pm on Thursday, Jan 4 due to the storm. All Lynn Drive, Fenwick Street, Clement Street and part of Hastings Drive in Dartmouth were without power. Over 60 houses, and on the outage site they reported less than five. This number did not change for the duration of the outage. I checked it every hour from my brother’s house and the number never changed.
