The Great Ice Storm Of 1998
Tomorrow is the 10Th anniversary of the worst ice storm in recent memory. It encompassed parts of eastern Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Canada and parts of Maine and New York State.
We watched in horror from the safety of our home the television reports showing hydro towers collapsing like matchsticks. There were around 30 deaths attributed to the storm and some areas were without power for weeks.
I am thinking about this storm today because conditions are right for another one. Unusually mild temperatures across most of Canada, lots of rain and a cold front moving in. Could it happen again, sure, but I sure hope it won't...
