Yesterday, the news was awash with warnings about the coming freezing rain. I wasn’t convinced because the forecasts around here are Toronto-centic and if their temperature would fall into that narrow freezing-rain zone, there was a fair chance that ours would not. I was wrong. It’s much worse in Toronto with one CBC-Radio reporter calling in from home stating that the cars on his street are covered with 20 millimetres of ice! There’s perhaps 5 millimetres of ice on flat surfaces here but it’s enough to bring back memories of the week-long eastern-Ontario ice storm from January 1998.
