We have been hit by a Freezing Rain storm and all of Toronto seems frozen and paralyzed.

 

Small sample from the backyard.  Roads are a sheet of ice, trees down, even power is down.  Posting this Hot Spotted from my iPhone, which is dying out.

 

Just to give you a taste.  I am sure there are some beautiful images to be had around Toronto, but I am not venturing out!!  Directly across the street from us, a huge branch off a tree came down on the neighbours house!  Lots of this going on in the city.

Might be my last post in a bit.  Until Power is restored.  May sit in the car and charge the phone up.

 

Later….

Did a drive with the family to get food, earlier in the evening.  Power is out in patches.  My neighbourhood is heavily hit due to the number of mature old trees.  Lots of branches have come down on the power lines, some streets are completely blocked by emergency tape, not entrance or exit.  Not sure what they did with the people there.  Something bad must have happened.  We have a power line down between my home and the neighbour due to the branch that came down across the street.

 

No sign of Hydro anywhere.  I am cut off from news so I am not sure what is going on.  Get this…. my neighbour directly behind me has POWER!!!  I must be on the EDGE of the grid… GREAT! 

 

Really, really getting annoying now….

 

Check back when I can access again!

Thanks PJ and Herman.

 

Here is my latest update…..

 

Went out to get breakfast and some of those burning logs so I could start up a quick fire in the fireplace.  It is a nice ragging fire so we are now comfortable. 

 

The house was 52F when we got up!  Toasty warm!!!  :wacko:   :lol:   Hey, we are comfy, lots of blankets, no sweat.  Takes more than a little storm to dampen our spirits. 

 

We are looking at PLAN B for Christmas….  We have a full fridge, no power…. and a Gobbler that may go uneaten!! The paper ran the headline, "Nightmare Before Christmas". Pretty close for many.

 

I have some pics I took this morning on my drive out for breakfast and to recharge the phone.  Phone is at 40% my PC at 31%.  PC will be problematic.  May have to drive somewhere to get it charged up again.

 

I will post periodically while I have power.

 

My area was hit the worst, according to the news.  Mostly due to dropped power lines from fallen trees.  I took some pics around the hood, will post them later.

 

Hope you guys are all well…. back soon….  :)

 

 

Just a quick snap of a tree that split in half, the other half went behind the fence towards the house… taken with my iPhone early this morning on my trip out for food and firewood.  Will post better images later...

Well, sadly, we are losing the battle to stay in the house. Weather dropping substantially, I will be shutting off the water tonight and draining the pipes. More roads are roped off than earlier today...all downed wires! I recharged all my devices, so I have some entertainment till tomorrow. Most likely sleep by the fireplace tonight, may have to leave tomorrow, running out of wood!

Watertown NY was in line with that storm and they still have problem areas.  We were without power for 4 days once, but that was in September.  Keep safe, keep smiling and keep a camera working.  It will be a Merry Christmas for you where ever you are.

Posted 24 December 2013 - 09:05 AM

Thanks Cliff and Herman.

 

Here is the latest.

 

We are literally freezing.  I turned off the water.  I think we will be leaving the house today.  No point in staying any more.  I have run out of wood and there is no place to buy any, everyone is sold out.  I tried to drive out of the neighbourhood this morning… I am posting from  my office….. and I had to zig zag around the streets as more and more streets are being roped off with emergency tape as power lines continue to fall!

 

To make matters worse…. IT IS SNOWING!!  :lol:

 

What are you gonna do!  :D

 

Here was my morning:

 

Get up at 6:00 am

Start my SUV… it is a CUBE OF ICE …. 15 minutes later scrap the ice off so I could see

The SUV looked like a TANK with just vision slots in the strategic places.

 

Drove to my Mom's, she has power, put the SUV in the underground.

 

Showered, SUV thawed, drove to work

 

Here for a couple of hours to recharge the computers phone etc.  On the way here…. WOW!  I thought we were bad off.  Trees down everywhere!!  This was a really, really bad storm.  You don't really realize it till you see the damage.  The ice slightly north is double or triple what you see in the pictures I posted above.

 

For Christmas Eve, we are on plan B.  Wife is packing the food this morning and driving to a relative.  I think we may move into my Sisters House until this is over.  I have had enough of freezing and having no access to TV, warm food, etc.

 

So, that is the situation today.  For the next few hours, while I am at my desk, I will be online… nothing to do here.

 

Other than the inconvenience… We are GOOD here!  :)

A quick update for everyone who has followed this thread… we are at home, warm, safe and sound.  The house dropped down to 42F or about 6C and we abandoned ship.  I drained the pipes, anti-freezer our four bathrooms and we left…. couldn't stay ahead of the cold, regardless  of how much wood we burned.

 

Good news, they restored the power late in the day and we returned to sleep in our beds.  House is cozy again, thrown out a lot of food, but who cares, back to normal.

 

I will be posting more pictures here that I took with my D800 and my iPhone 5s just to give you a better picture of the devastation of this storm.  So many trees have been lost or damaged.  I have not heard of any deaths so far, very lucky.  Lots of people injured from Carbon monoxide poisoning from bringing in BBQ's and lighting them up INDOORS!!! 

 

People were desperate… especially when it his -17C!!  That was when we called it quits.

 

Time to start shopping for a NATURAL GAS generator!  Never going through this again if I can help it!!

Thanks Peter, nice to be back to normal.

 

Here are a few more images of various topics:

 

Our Fireplace, that in the end, couldn't keep up with the temperature drop.  I found out my neighbour, with a small generator, failed to keep up as well.  Many of the neighbours went to family or hotels.

We had a big wind storm Labor Day 1998 that knocked  down a lot of trees and limbs.   We were without power for 5 days.  Since then there have been other storms but not the same results.  Two reasons.  Nature gleaned out a lot of the possible dangers and the power company sends crews to keep the overhangs abated.  Ends up being cheaper to stay ahead of the problem than to have to do the emergency repairs.
