December 1 ice storm: Share your photos here!

Luckily the down wire is not live and from Bell Canada, which I don't subscribe to.

Does anyone know if Bell will come and remove the wire if I am not a customer of theirs?

Branches hit the shed and not the house.

I feel like lieutenant Dan in Forest Gump. You call this a storm?

Glad nothing significant was damaged

Ice storm? Where is this ice storm? Looks like a branch fell off a tree that should have been pruned.

I had to brush off my car after having lunch. That was a royal PITA.

Just came back from Hamilton, dropped off my son at McMaster. Lots of droopy wires and icy trees. However, it's nothing comparing ice storm GTA had few years ago.

We had a lot of limbs down in our yard. We've never seen anything like it on our property. We still have a pretty massive broken limb up high that didn't quite break enough to fall. It's going to be a huge pain to get it down. It's probably 30' up where it needs to be cut.

Hamilton got hammered in this recent storm. My landscaping is all but flattened from the weight of the ice buildup. Hoping for some thaw this week to see if any of it is salvageable.

It sure did. We're in lower Stoney Creek and when I was out running errands yesterday I couldn't believe how many limbs I saw down everywhere. Trees took an absolute beating. We have 2 year old cedars and I'm worried how they will be. A few got some pretty bad leans from the ice. I'm also hoping a thaw salvages them.
