Ontario Power Outages
Power outages continue to confound the situation. This location↓, on the edge of Algonquin Park, has been difficult to reach. Nay, impossible to reach, and they are burning a ton of fuel to both heat their homes and keep generators going. Many rural folks have generators and wood stoves, but these require fuel. Read more:
A Christmas Eve storm. Burned-out generators. These homeowners still don’t have power almost two weeks later
I am grateful for power and heat these days. I did zero work outside yesterday, as the sidewalk, the back deck, were covered in ice. The driveway wasn't too bad, but there were spots of ice and I don't want to risk a fall. I did venture out, but not far. The sound encapsulates Ice Storm '98. It gives me the hee bee jeebies.

The ice storms are awful, so many trees are damaged and power outages are terrible. Take care, stay safe. Take care, enjoy your day and happy weekend!
...ice has a destructive beauty.
It's no typical winter this... outside the Hutch windows today, you'd think had arrived... YAM xx
Yes, mobility sure is limited when ice is everywhere! Stay safe!
I was wary venturing out yesterday.
Ice storms are the scariest for sure. Hopefully it all melts today.
Your winter extremes are beyond my comprehension. Stay safe.
Strange weather. The grass is still so green
Brrrtr so beautiful!
two weeks running a generator, that's a lot of fuel, and you cannot even drive to get more.No one would have thought it would continue for so long. Glad you are staying in and the worst hopefully is over.
We're just having rain (highs in the 50sF), but we've had freezing rain in the past. It's pretty, but it's a nightmare to get out in.
I can empathize with those who are and were out of power. Ice is beautiful in photos, but destructive when it's on your property.
