Winter 2013

This was a different winter, one I haven't seen in years, or perhaps at all in my lifetime. While the coating of ice made the trees and branches shimmer in the sunlight, it caused chaos in various parts of southern Ontario, knocking out power for days. Luckily I wasn't affected, and neither were my parents in Oshawa for the most part. Some photos from the trip home.

Icy Branches

What a weekend! Toronto saw a lot of freezing rain over the past two days. Things got slippery and everything became encased in ice, causing branches to snap and thus sweeping power outages. My apartment is surrounded by large, beautiful trees and its limbs became victims to the storm. One snapped and landed right outside my kitchen window. I was lucky to have power throughout the storm though, and with no damage to report. Hope everyone is staying safe and warm as we clean-up and as power continues to be restored to many areas still affected.
