First day at Cypress (opening day). Skiing on november 16th! Half price, but less than half the lifts, less than 1/10th of the runs open. However, conditions look promising – soon the whole mountain will be open.
On the way bakc, I noticed a large black spot on the city scape. Wait a minute – Queen E park is not that big: that’s a power outage. (200 000 without power says the internet). Possibility of awful flooding. No tap water to drink! (Boiliing at present). The only storm in a city in which I’ve been living which I did not notice but only learned about from the internet afterwards.
