…some say in ice.

December 23, 2013

A big ice storm swept through our area this weekend. A local rag has captured some photos from around the city. The biggest problem seems to have been tree branches falling on power lines, leaving many people without electricity. A good proportion of traffic lights are out, with massive traffic jams in consequence. The silver lining is that the ice on the trees is quite beautiful.

As for me and my house, we were fortunate that our power stayed on (despite some odd intermittent dimming in the evening hours). Our car was encased in a thick layer of ice yesterday; we had to chisel it out in order to open the door. And on our driveway and sidewalk the ice is an inch thick. But the kids love it, and they say that the temperatures will rise in the spring, so I’m not too worried.

    Of course, I had no idea we share the same province. I’m in a small town called Wellesley, outside of Waterloo. We were hit with the storm too. If you’re interested, here are a few photos from it I took this morning: http://isleofhoy.com/2013/12/23/this-morning/

    Great pictures! I hope that there was no damage to your property and that no-one was hurt.
