Ice Ice Baby

Ice storm eh?

I woke up in Montreal (with a sore everything) on Sunday the 22nd of December blissfully unaware of the chaos going down in Ontario. While it was just a regular snowy winter wonderland in MTL, lots of South Eastern Ontario had been covered with freezing rain. I became painfully aware of the circumstances when my mom picked me up in Kingston and we sat together through a nail biting trip along the 401 back to Small Town.

The devastation to the trees alone will make this Ice storm a memorable one – maybe not the magnitude of the ’98 storm, but certainly more documented.

While Ice Storms are devastating to both Flora and Fauna – and just generally provide dangerous scenarios – they make for beautiful photos!

Now that we’ve had a few days of above 0 Celsius everything is starting to melt and the trees are being released from their icy shackles. Hilariously, as the sections of ice are falling off the tree the property is now covered in little tubes of ice – it looks like the Abominable Snowman has pooped all over the yard!
