Power Restored
Who likes to be stuck in traffic? I guess, no none, but that is what you have to deal with in a big city. There are certain streets and neighborhoods you know you always will be stuck in traffic, so, naturally, people try to plan their routes avoiding such roads. What can be worse than downtown traffic with all the cars and traffic lights, well… try the whole West End with all the electricity down. A large power outage in Winnipeg's West End had thousands...
Incidents
When you park your car in the garage or a parkade you expect it to be safe and protected for the sun and rain. But, apparently, some people can just forget their vehicle in the parking garage.
