Thought you'd like this. 
In Austin today, we're having an Ice Day. That means school and many businesses are shut down because it rained and froze overnight and might snow 1/4 inch and we just can't handle it! LOL. 
My boys are overjoyed, of course. I'm glancing out the window frequent to see if the snow has begun. It hasn't.

    because of that giant ice storm that covered the northeast for weeks 20 years ago, a lot of people in eastern Ontario and Québec get anxiety when they predict ice storms.  :(

    a quarter inch of snow is nothing for us, as you might imagine. we got 2 inches of fresh powder yesterday.

    I lived in Ottawa during those ice storms. I haven't seen anything like it since. Shudder.

    Well, I'm not Canadian but I'm nosy so I had to read what this was about. haha. 
    I facebooked my friend in Tomball, TX yesterday to see how it was there and she sent me pics of some ice and snow. Of course I live just miles from Erie, PA which got 6 feet of snow in a few days, so a few inches is nothing to us around here. Now ice is another store.

    Yes, I think it was the ice they were mostly worried about.  We didn't end up with a flake of snow. Grrrrr. Some hail, but no snow.

    i don't know about you, but what i remembered most is how the branches waving in the wind sounded like breaking glass from hitting each other while loaded down with so much ice. and this one little tree in Sandy Hill Park across from my house literally peeled like a banana into 3 pieces from the weight of the ice on it.

    how long were you without power, SG? i was close enough to downtown that it only went out for hours at a time for the first 4 or 5 days. my sister down in Greeley lost it for almost a month, and my aunt and uncle near Spencerville for 5 weeks - which was as long as my dad and stepmother lost power on Montreal's north shore.

    one of my most vivid memories is seeing a line of power trucks from all over North America driving down King Edward on a Saturday morning (maybe week 2?) and students from the university and residents standing on the sidewalk applauding and cheering and yelling thank yous to them.

    I lived downtown on OConnor, so it wasnt too bad. Being on foot sure had its advantages!
