April's Ice Storm



We were thankful to make it through the storm with minimal damage. We lost a couple trees and lots of branches but all the houses and buildings on Wallaceview's farms were safe. The ever faithful JD and its' trusty generator kept things humming and, aside for a few very minor inconveniences, we were able to keep things running smoothly for the 3 days we were without hydro. Considering how many of our friends and neighbours were affected (having to leave their homes, losing freezers & fridges full of food, working through the night and day to keep up in the barns) we were very grateful to be relatively unscathed. For me, the biggest loss was one of the blue spruces from the trio in our back yard. The view from the window over the kitchen sink just doesn't look quite right any more. However, when all was said and done, we realized what a big list of things we have to be thankful for.

  1. Wow, it was way worse for you than us, I can see that now. We can be so thankful that it wasn't worse. You know, I can remember we had a bad case of freezing rain on the farm when I was a kid. There was still snow on the ground. We all got our skates out and skated on our fields and down the hill on our yard, and we even skated on the road before the sander came along. It was great fun for us kids.
