And water. Water is key. Toronto doesn't have water yet.....
in all honesty it wasn't anyones "fault" it just happened.


This doesn't mean the invasion in cancelled. Zoney can you confirm your position?


yes I am going to run the invasion from this thread

I heard the whole thing started in Ohio... but who knows

I was in Cleveland at Hopkins Airport when the power went out, and my flight was cancelled so I had to drive about 13 hours home It was fun trying to get out of the city with no working traffic lights!

My troops have pulled back. We crossed the border at Windsor, and got attacked by a couple of "Bubba's." They were in plaid.

How many?.......it seems from our intel that in an act of agression canada has amasses 90 percent of it's poulation in the provinces bordering the US...they may prove more formidable that we thought.

I am glad foxfire was one of the first reponders! US folks without CBC won't get it

Sad, but it only took three or four "Bubba's" - my troops were small, and "we hadn't eaten all day."

Go ahead...make fun of us for being lightweights.

ahhh how i love people.


so i get a phone call at work today from a parent who was wondering why we were closed friday (work in the office at a summer program... 32 different camps... 1200 kids total... yadda yadda yadda). the woman was very upset that we didn't give her a "courtesy call" about the closure on friday. i tried to explain to this wackadoo that, um, there was a massive state wide black out. that explanation was apparently not good enough. she tried saying we should have used cell phones or a pay phone to call each person individualy. ya know... sometimes i just love the human race.
