So in the last 20 days we got about 30mm (1.18 inches) of freezing rain. Things are a bit of a mess. Except for a brief period in the middle of the night, we have had no power since 10 pm last night. Most of our town has no power, so we are sitting in a coffee shop in the city next door.

Mr Ivriniel wants to get to worm cutting up the downed branches in the back yard, but the trees are creaking ominously, and I managed to convince him it was prudent to wait. The mayor is telling people via Facebook not to leave their homes unless they have to due to the danger of falling branches, so I think outdoor work is right out.

According to the local Hydro company's Facebook page, five main feeder lines are down, so restoring power is going to take a while.
