Took a walk to the Sheppard centre. Every outlet in the mall has small groups of people huddled charging phones.
You say get high, I say hello!

Which major intersection are you?
Sheppard and Warden. Hopefully other areas get it back up soon.
We take things like having electricity for granted and while it's not the end of the world to be without it..man it's tough to live without it in winter.

Tons of frustrating stormy moments, confusing weather data and unexpected shifts in the forecast models, but in the end, a lot of enthusiasm :)

I am glad to see some people here have power back finally.
I still am wondering how many people have to wait through this "72 hour wait time" for power. How ever many people that is, they will have to endure 2 frigid nights below minus ten.

It won't drop that far IN the houses, but with the temps outside that cold, it will rock fall for sure.

Haven’t seen anything in here about Markham. Usually it doesn't take much for a power outage to occur in Markham Village but so far (knock wood) we’ve only had a few threats. The first 4 pics are of the damage caused to a single side street – without doubt one of the most majestically tree-lined in the village.

Lol true. that is what brought this thread to being the most posted to thread. Glad the power is coming back now. If you click in the forums "replies" It will sort the threads from the most posted to threads on downwards. And you will see that this thread has the most posts of all threads made in this part of the site!

Wow I was shocked when I got home I have never seen ice like this everything is coated in thick ice, trees split in half broken branches everywhere. Had to navigate trees and branches all over the road. Just keep hearing branches snapping outside/ Quite a contrast with Buffalo it melted quickly there and was all gone by afternoon. Lots of people walking around in shorts in Buffalo, to cold for that but there were a lot of them. It felt at least 10 or more degrees warmer there.

That's a good sign if you can see lights from your window and I hope it gets back up for you soon.
Where are you located?

I feel for people with babies and small children, no way they can stay in homes without power that long.
