4:00 AM Alarm goes off. Time to take Spike to work - 40 minutes each way.
4:33 AM In the car, Spike's short on water for this week, so we're keeping our eyes peeled for a store that might be open at this insane hour.
4:36 AM Receive "morning" text from fellow early riser who's on HIS way to work too. Not "good morning". Just "morning". That was our agreement.
4:53 AM Halfway to Spike's work, pull into a PetroCanada convenience store. Buy a case of water.
4:54 AM Chat to the lady behind the counter. She mentions the rain that happened everywhere on Saturday night. "Not at our house," we said. Not at her son's house either, she says.
Turns out her son lives 4 doors down from us.
