- A potent system crossing North
America brought severe weather to the southern United States,
and a tremendous amount of freezing rain tot he Great Lakes region.
Some places in Southern Ontario received 30-40mm of ice which
brought down countless tree limbs and caused widespread power
outages. At the peak of the storm, about 500,00 people were without
power and it wasn't until well after Christmas that many people
had their electricity restored. I was not spared the wrath of
the ice storm. We lost power for 2 days and it was determined
that it was the worst ice storm to hit Toronto in recorded history.
- During the storm I teamed up
with The Weather Network to document the ice in Georgetown, which
was quite heavily hit.
