Jeff & Pat's
We had quite a time with the
ice storm which hit eastern Ontario and Quebec on January 7, 1998.
These photos were taken of our driveway January 7:
The kids stayed home from school until
Thursday, although Jeff was able to get to work. It was incredibly
slippery, and I'm sure the ornamental cedars in front of the house
won't recover, but we didn't have the problems with power outages
and trees down that occured in other
parts of the country.
Here is a picture taken on Friday, January
9, after the snow came - the picture doesn't show it, but the
snow looked to be falling horizontally, it was so windy!
Things cleared up by Saturday, although
the trees and fences are still coated with ice. These shots were
taken Sunday, January 11:
I wish the ice glistening on the trees
showed up better - it looked like they were covered with diamonds
sparkling in the sunlight.
On August 29, 1998, we had a surprise
hail-storm at the cottage. Hailstones, some literally the size
of golf balls, came clattering down.
