Today began like any other. My alarm clock starts blaring at the earlier-than-I’d-prefer time of 8:15. I begin my day. I turn on the kitchen tap and…. *gasp* nothing happens. Oops. There’s no water. I can hear the sound of trucks outside. I peek out the window, and sure enough, city trucks are out there. Okay, so something happened, and they’re working on it. Good thing I showered the night before!
So anyway, I head off to school. I noticed that the small lake near my house had iced over, so I took some pictures.
The ice isn’t very thick!
Ice clearly covers the main part of the lake though. So I continue my walk to school, and a spot a funny sign.
I wonder how often Ms. “Hrdlicka” gets jokes made about her name!
The day at school was typical. So I walk home the same way after school, and what do I see?!
What?! I don’t remember there being so many rocks or the lake being this shallow. It’s also been cold all day too. What happened to the ice?
Now look at that. The water is all gone. Like what the heck. How does this happen?
There’s the culprit. A drain is located at the centre of this “lake”. Clearly this was a pre-meditated draining on behalf of the City of Calgary. So that’s fine. I’m over it.
I walk up to my street, and the city trucks are still there. The water situation still doesn’t look good.
The alley behind my house is all dug up, with water on the road. Looks like a water main break. As of right now, they are still working on it, and claim it will be back soon. I wonder if they’re using Saint John branded pipes made out of wood before confederation!
I must admit… with an election just finishing the night before, and two strange water disappearances all happening at once, the only possible explanation is some sort of conspiracy!
