Life in progress

Ice Storm


I’m writing this on Friday night but scheduling it for Saturday, the 21st of December. If this goes live, it means I’ve lost my power due to a massive ice storm that’s coming this way. I lived through the ice storm in Western Quebec in 1998 – we went without power for three days. Luckily my mother was living in a subdivision close by which had all the power lines underground. This time I’m not that lucky.

I feel like I’m leaving a note to say, “If something happens to me…”

Anyway, it’s not that serious. I’ll just be without internet access.


Edit: Saturday evening – if this goes live tonight it may be because I’ve gone to the hospital to have my noggin’ checked out.  I’m feeling kinda dizzy as I write this, and from what I understand that’s not a very good sign after having fallen and hit it on a slab of concrete…

  14. We got the freezing rain but fortunately living across from a big Mall, Hydro takes extra care. But did not have company from the townships…a bit too slick…it’s snowing now here. Hope your power is not out too long…that sucks if you don’t have a wood stove:(


  15. Oh no! I hope you’re home safely, soon — and with power!


  16. Oh Linda. I hope your head is okay. That is serious business. And I hope your power is restored quickly.
