No, you didn’t overlook yesterday’s ottawan in your inbox – we didn’t send one out because of the power outage.

Our power is still out today, and we’re not sure when it’s coming back. So we’re taking our Easter break early and skipping today as well. 

The City reminds residents that recreation facilities are available for those residents without power to charge their devices and use showering facilities at arenas, pools and recreation centres – however many are closed because they don’t have power themselves.

The CBC has a good list of where to warm up, power up, or charge things in Ottawa and Gatineau.

We’ll see you again Tuesday, but until then stay warm, Chag Pesach kasher vesame’ach, Happy Easter, and a continuing Ramadan Mubarak.
