Not that I'm obssessed

. . . about the weather, but take a look at the photo I shot at 11 a.m. this morning, as I was heading out to do my icky-Saturday-shopping-chores.

Yesterday the NWT Power Corporation asked people in Yellowknife and Behchoko to voluntarily conserve power, so that the whole grid doesn't go down. I work in the Government of Canada building, and the owners put the building on emergency backup during peak usage hours, to help reduce the strain on the system. So far things are holding. The only outage occurred a few nights ago, and the brown-out that preceded that one fried TVs across the city, including ours. :-(
