The ice storm

I took a drive along l’Anse à l’Orme woods this morning, hoping to catch a glimpse of some deer that inhabit the woods. I didn’t see any but when I looked up at these electrical pylons I was reminded of the ice storm of 1998. Especially since earlier I had spent a long time scraping the freezing rain off my car. I think if you lived through that storm you can’t easily forget it, since it kept it us in the dark and the cold for days or even weeks.
