This is the worst rain I've ever seen in Toronto... this is crazy.
Over 75mm this afternoon.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Wow, you folks can't catch any breaks. First the total choke in the NHL playoffs, then the mayor smoking crack, and now this!         
Inspiration, move me brightly! Light the song with sense and color.
Hold away despair, more than this I will not ask.
Faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last.
Some rise, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin!

As of right now, there are STILL parts of Toronto without power! Mainly in South Etobicoke centered along The Queensway and Royal York.
The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

I was listening to 680 News on my way home last night and the spokesperson from Hydro One was saying that some people in Mississauga and Etobicoke will be without power until tonight.   
Flying refined.
