I headed over to the Confederation Court Mall this afternoon about 3:30 p.m. to do some shopping. The city was like a ghost town, with the snow storm seemingly keeping everyone at home. Just as I arrived at the mall, all of the merchants decided to close (it was freaky watching this happen: there was no controlling legal authority, the decision to close simply passed through the mall like a virus).

Thankfully, Tweel’s, source of important storm-stay magazines, was oblivious to all of this and remained open (their position outside the mall afforded them immunity to the virus, although I did mentioned that the mall was closing, which infected them).
