The Beat remembers the big blackout of 2003 all day today.
So here’s the question – Where were YOU when the blackout happened?
I was living in Toronto at the time and at work (not in radio at the time) when the blackout hit. I was thrilled. I got to leave work early and I got the next day off! Woo-hoo!
The morning after the blackout hit my roommate and I cooked breakfast over an open flame in our fireplace then went for a bike ride through downtown Toronto to see the city powered down.
I only have fond memories of the blackout and I can’t believe it’s been ten years already.
