The big news in Ottawa today is the water main break that shut down one of the major roads. Specifically, one that I take to work. And live beside.
Wanda came home this morning and said, "I had to turn early because Woodroffe is closed. I don't know what's going on.".
I turned to twitter - as one does in these situations - to find out there was a water main break. It turns out that caused a giant sinkhole. (I assume that wasn't known until the City of Ottawa truck drove into it.) I resolved to leave for work early.
I got distracted.
When I realized I was late, I rushed around and got ready. That was successful - I left for work a whole minute earlier than usual.
After all of that, traffic was lighter than usual. I got to work in plenty of time.
