Chaos + City Chase Pro Pics

I won't soon forget the sound of my keyboard rattling on my desk and the feeling of the floor shaking beneath me during yesterday's earthquake, the first I have ever experienced. Soon after we were flooded with severe storm warnings and a reported tornado touch-down not far from here. It has been a crazy 24 hours!

Given the heightened security surrounding the G20 Summit in Toronto, it has been a chaotic morning. Go figure, I'm travelling on perhaps the busiest day the Toronto Airport will see all year.

We allowed plenty of extra time and I am currently waiting in the Maple Leaf Lounge (enjoying free breakfast and internet - score!) for my flight.

As I prepare to depart for Seattle, I'll leave you with these pics from last weekend:
