Ice Storm

Toronto, Ontario - Dec. 23, 2004

A vicious winter storm began to hit the Toronto area overnight with heavy snow changing to rain, then to freezing rain and back into snow again. Traffic across the city came to a crawl and at the airport, flights were delayed and canceled. The buildup of ice on trees caused many of them to snap, some landing on cars. Even my chase vehicle became completely glazed over with a layer of ice covering my weather instruments and lights. The driving conditions became extremely dangerous with hundreds of motor vehicle accidents reported across the area. Of course all this occurs right at the height of the holiday travel season.
