It's not the severity of the storm so much as what the ice buildup will do to the power grid and streets. If it was +5 c. This would just be a rainy day.

The ice is the problem. It will break important things. Like the stuff that heats your house.

Me too! But again, as long as nothing overly bad happens. This storm has historic potential and I don't want it to ruin Christmas for me.

I can't believe this happened. Even over there. That means that this storm is too ferocious for any part of Toronto area.

It is quite complex. I rather just desribe it. there is a very bad band of precipitation heading toward us and it is all changing over to ice. It is very serious. This could cause major damage.

This is North america. Toronto is right in the middle of it. I just hope that somehow Toronto gets out of it in some way. But I don't see much chance of that happening.

I just hope the pipes don't freeze since the furnance keeps the pipes warm and such.

My firewall is fine and so is the security can.

Brampton
[QUOTE]Saturday evening also saw power outages across the province, with HydroOne reporting 27,800 customers without electricity. In Aurora and Kleinburg, outages affected a total of some 4,000 people. In Brampton, an electrical pole snapped in half because of the ice, bringing down power lines which then caught fire. There were no reported injuries and emergency crews blocked off the area. [/QUOTE]

A lot of peeps don't have power tonight. Good thing it ain't cold outside.
