southern ontario was hit pretty hard with an ice storm this weekend. it actually cancelled both family get-togethers on friday and saturday night, unfortunately. the roads became sheets of ice and trees became coated with thick ice. sometime in the middle of the night on saturday, we lost power and it didn't go back on until about 8:30am. others weren't so lucky and had power out much longer, some still without it. when we had to take a quick drive to the grocery store, nearly every tree was broken from the weight. that said, because of all this, we were able to just bunker down at my parents and watch a few christmas movies.
and while this ice storm was absolutely beautiful, it definitely didn't help the last minute shoppers, with the bad roads, blackouts and even a few malls closing midday.
