By the time we arrived up at our cottage on Friday night it looked like small tornado had blown through.
Trees were uprooted, some even snapped off half way up, slumped over power lines and across roadways.
Needless to say power was out and the pool began between neighbours as to when everyone thought it would be back on.
Quickly we scrambled to assemble coolers and ice making sure we have enough provisions for the next few days.
On Saturday power was still out in town meaning cottages along the lakes may take days.
It didn’t stop this bustling cottage town from doing business as the grocery store and gas station fired up their generators.
Even smaller merchants like the General Store and gifts stores who didn’t have power, were selling, if you have cash or taking IOY’s and credit card numbers to process later.
By Sunday every store was open except for the LCBO. They shut down Friday afternoon when the power went out, locked up and posted a sign that said not op[en until power is back on.
However on Sunday morning when power was restored to the town, everything was open except the LCBO.
I guess no one told them the power was back on.
The enterprising new Canadian that owns the general stores yells, I should have the license, I am open!
Too bad his hard working spirit falls on deaf ears in this province,
I’m Scott Thompson.
