Somtimes You Get Lucky

A big ice storm hit Southern Ontario last weekend. I was supposed to be on holidays but ended up going into work Sunday and drove in in the 110. Had I stayed home, this is where the 110 would have been parked.





Hate to think how it would have looked under that chunk of tree. As for the VW, a thick coat of ice seems to have protected the paint finish quite well with no damage done.





More of the tree came down over night but both the 110 and Golf were parked elsewhere.

Who would have ever thought that going to work would be a good thing?

Yep, just a bit too close for comfort. The whole neighbourhood is quite a mess with downed trees but luckily no major damage. Sadly, parts of Toronto (about 30,000 homes) are still without power six days later.
