Oh this was a close one. A good chunk of Toronto has been without power for days, including us. For some, the lights (and heat!) won't be back until well after Christmas.
At risk of understatement, it certainly makes you appreciate what you have when you're forced to abandon home so your children don't freeze to death in their beds.
On the upside, this will almost certainly be the most exciting Christmas of their lives. And the ice-encrusted trees are exquisitely beautiful when they're not taking civic infrastructure down with them.
All in all, I couldn't ask for a more memorable holiday. :-)
Merry Christmas, everybody!
