Ice Storm 2013

It's been a while but this is totally worth blogging. So, the Greater Toronto Area was hit by a major ice storm yesterday. Some cities got it worst than others. My neighbourhood was hit pretty hard and here's the aftermath:


There's trees everywhere! The weight of the freezing rain was too much for the poor trees to handle. There's countless amounts of branches and whole trees that are just laying across roads, sidewalks cars, and even houses. I couldn't sleep last night because of the amount of trees that were constantly breaking and slamming to the ground. It was terrifying. There are approximately 250,000 households that are affected by power outages and some may not even have power restoration for another 72 hours.

Hope anyone that was affected by the storm or any sort of winter weather condition stays warm. It's slippery out there and there's still tons of branches falling from trees, so beware.

Drive carefully & stay safe! Today is going to be a long day full of ice scraping and chiselling...

  1. I woke up around 3am for a late snack. I heard a loud crash and looked into my backyard, one of our power lines crashed down and my neighbor's tree branches collapsed into our yard! Luckily our power is still up and no one was hurt.

    Crazy weather! Keep safe your guys!
