This is my street after the ice storm of Dec 2013. Looks like a war zone. We lost half of the trees in one day.

That absolutely sucks. What a change your street will experience this year. Takes me back to these good old days... I mistakenly thought the Quebec hydro towers were in the late 80s but it turns out it was January 1998. Seems much longer ago.

We had no power for most of the day, and my sump pump was running continuously just prior to losing electricity. Had me shitting bricks that my basement was going to flood. 

Once things were restored, I was far more relaxed and tried to get out for a few "good" shots before the ice completely melted.

 I haven't had cable or internet at home going on 6 years.  I kind of like it.

Yea, number 17 is pretty neat. Your chains photo could have earned a spot other than the "in Toronto" part.
