The ice storm that hit southern Ontario late Dec 21-22, 2013. It caused widespread power, water, telephone and cable loss. Everything exposed was covered with a thick layer of ice. Everythng shut down. Very many trees lost huge branches from the weight of the ice. Heavy fallen branches caused many problems and obstacles. I was out of power, heat and telephone, for aproximately 55 hours, cable- not sure and later water. The temperatures outdoors ranged from 0*C to minus 14*C. as well as happening during the shortest days of the year, Power was restored in our area about 6:30 a,m, Dec 24. It took a friend and I approx. 5 hours to clear my car from the ice. It was too cold and windy to stay out for long periods. Left for Whitby early Christmas morning, returning home today to find all restored here.
