Wow! SOOO lucky!

We have power lines near our house and they were arcing all night so all we heard was booms. Cambridge lost power for a significant part of the night, and I had no power for all of about 5 minutes this morning, but its mostly switched to wind and rain at this point. There are several big trees around us that fell last night, but no damage, one was blocking a main road though.

I love birch trees...I'm sorry you lost it But glad you didn't lose your vehicles as well!

That stinks, I'm sorry. I'm glad it missed your vehicles though!

We didn't lose power this time. DH slipped and fell on the walkway on his way to work and he got a nasty scrape on his cheek and knee, poor guy. Right on his cheekbone.

I took some more while we were out:

Standing in the garage:


The mailbox:


My street is off of the street this happened on:


On our way to the highway:



I was talking to my friend who's not far from you Jenn, and she lost power at 4am, and had to get her 15 month old up, ready, fed, and to daycare with no power...she was over an hour late to work!

Yeah, that's in Wroxeter...I have a few Listowel people on my facebook since DH is from there so they were sharing it.

I think the ice looks pretty! Just not a fan of it in April, and the damage its causing.

That was a crazy ice storm! I'm glad your cars were safe. But that pic of the power lines and poles down was crazy! I've never seen that before. I've seen 1 or 2 down at the same place but never an entire line of them. Must have been a sight to see IRL.
