Just thought I'd provide a quick update on the Ice Storm that hit Toronto and surrounding areas. In South Mississauga, we were hit pretty bad. I'd estimate a 1/4" of ice on everything. So much so that my neighbours tree had a large branch break off and hit a power line. Then another power line further down had a small electrical fire because it shorted out. Finally, the tree branch fell further down on the power line. So needless to say there is no power here yet. This all happened before 12pm, our powers been out since 10:30am and at 8pm the time of this posting it is still out. UPDATE: Power came back on around 3:30am, took a crew about two hours to fix everything.. Thankfully we have a generator that is hard at work outside to keep our fridge and freezer cold. Next up is heaters in our rooms for 30 minutes each so we can sleep kind of warm tonight. I made a small gallery with the photos I took today: http://IceStorm.JoeMittler.com
