Default The January 5th DCT Gets Two Minutes for Icing!

January 5th, 1998 ... it began ...

A massive combination of five smaller successive ice storms combined to strike eastern Canada and the northeastern United States.

The Great Ice Storm of 1998 will stand as a landmark ice storm for decades to come.

In Canada, it is often called the "Québec ice storm" as that province took the brunt of its wrath. With the freezing rain lasting over a five day period, it left billions of dollars in damage and more than four million people without electrical power, some for as long as five weeks. The area covered was massive, extending from Ontario through Quebec to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and also covering parts of New York and New England!

The farming industry was hit hard...Milk processing plants were shut down, and about 10 million litres of milk had to be dumped. Much of the sugar bush used by Québec maple syrup producers was permanently destroyed. It is estimated that it will take 30 to 40 years before syrup production can return to normal.

It cannot be denied that photos taken during the Great Ice Storm are breathtakingly beautiful in their terrible icy splendor ....

... but the devastation caused by nature’s fury is also painfully evident. In some areas, the destruction wrought on the landscape in 1998 will take decades to correct.

Today is a good day to reflect and give thanks to the military, the civilian volunteers, the provincial/state/municipal workers and volunteers who cleared roads, rescued both people and animals trapped by storm wreckage and ensured that farmers had the generators and fuel required to keep their operations going until power could be restored.

It is a time to celebrate those who tirelessly gave of themselves to evacuate the sick, and shelter / feed about 100,000 people frozen out of their homes, and those who continued to work in the aftermath to restore and rebuild.

Estimated cost of the Great Ice Storm of 1998 was $5,410,184,000...
