Canada's largest city - Toronto - is still recovering from a massive ice storm which blanketed the city and surrounding suburbs Dec. 21. Ice built up on power lines, causing the lines to collapse under the weight of the ice, and tossing over 250,000

Very creative idea, Angelika! In Colorado Springs in the nineties and oughts when we had unusually heavy snowfall I was already saying, "Where do you think this water is coming from if not the poles? We are a desert region!"

Yes, we got quite a snow and ice storm here. Finally the last people have finally their electricity back.
Thank you to all the hydro workers who worked so hard in order to make this happen.

Within the last 6 months, we had one month with over 19 inches of rain, then drought and 100+ degrees day after day. Recently there was an ice storm that blanketed everything for miles with 2". Made driving and even walking crazy. It was fun watching the dogs skating about, but this constant spin in weather isn't healthy for anything.

You should have been here the week before Katrina when part of Finch Avenue viaduct was washed away. I was in Kansas City, Austin and Metairie and flew in on the night before. When I woke up it had been raining for hours and it didn't abate until late that afternoon. Then of course there was the large section of South Vancouver that just disappeared into a sink hole in December of that year. It looked like someone had very neatly carved out a huge piece of cake.
Many of our bad Toronto storms originate in Texas.

Noted with thanks Cher. It is always very sad to hear of people loosing their lives in these Super Storms.
Toronto was sure without power for a long time in a lot of areas. I haven't seen yet how bad Nova Scotia and Newfoundland were hit yet. In the prairie provinces, namely Alberta, we had so much rain, hail and lightening, all summer and with snow making it a late spring.So I was expecting smaller amounts of snow this winter - wrong!! The Super Cells and Big Storms are happening all over the world.I never would have thought there would be Tornadoes in November in the mid US.I don't see how anybody could possibly deny Climate Change! Thanks Cher.
