On Saturday, we lost power at 9 am, along with 90% of the island, and since our apartment has so many windows, when the power went out, it got cold pretty fast. We spent the morning doing things that people normally do in a power outage such as wrap up in blankets, read, and eat cold things. By mid-afternoon, power was restored in many places in St. John's, and we went over to Elizabeth's parent's house to play some games (and make our stop motion animation film!).
On the drive over, we snapped a few pictures of the snow/road conditions. There were HUGE line-ups at Tim Horton's and Burger King, extending onto the street, because power still hadn't been restored to many homes.
Luke downloaded an app, iMotionHD, to help with the making of the film (this app can also do timelapses which we will probably be taking advantage of in the future). We also had to construct an apparatus to hold the iPhone steady while we were taking the pictures because it's important to keep the camera in one place. Since we were using LEGO for the film, we made the iPhone stand out of LEGO blocks we had nearby.
