Power finally went out

Just after 2 pm (while I was freezing my butt off in the arena for the second time of the day), the power went out at our house.  Still just raining, but there are patchy outages all over the Hamilton area.  We were able to make dinner on our gas stove and ate by oil lamp- and flash-light. Our two fireplaces are keeping the house warm (about +3C outside), but we decided to drive up to Wendy's parents house to play cards. They have power - useful to charge up the cell phones! Some sources suggest we won't get power back until mid-day on the 26th.

Lots of trees down (and a few soon on their way down) on the drive this evening. The ice is certainly thicker up closer to the Hamilton airport.
