I got out of school at 11 today because it is final exam week and I have to grade all afternoon. On my walk home from the bus stop, I noticed our neighborhood seemed particularly lively and stopped to take some photos with my BlackBerry. The sound of dogs barking, construction sites, cars honking, people shouting, planes flying overhead, and every other loud city sound seemed magnified for some reason on this pretty afternoon. This is my first experience living in a real 'big' city, and I am finding I am well-suited to it.
Could this explain the constant power outages?
