Westmount Emergency Requires Creativity

It began this morning. First the water stopped. Then it started again. I figured it was plumbing in our building.

It has been 6 hours now and it looks like the water will be off long into the night.

In Westmount, Quebec, one citizen(me) must revert to boiling snow when the water gets cut off.

With no information provided by the city, I took it upon myself to rectify the emergency. Descending three flights I scooped buckets of snow to ensure the toilet was able to function. Yes, a rather unfortunate sit-uation.

“First the water line broke, then the repair machinery accidentally cut through a gas line. It should only be about three more hours,” said an unnamed eyewitness.

UPDATE: Water was returned by 8 PM.
