Mount Royal: 20 Years after the Ice Storm

January 1998: An ice storm like no other hit southern Quebec, as well as parts of Ontario, the Maritimes and eastern United States. From January 5 to 9, three major episodes of freezing rain turned the bucolic winter landscape into a disaster scene. Who can forget the striking images of trees frozen solid in elaborate ice sculptures, collapsed electricity pylons, paralyzed roads and military assistance? On top of this, nearly half of Quebec found itself plunged into darkness when the power grid, put to the test by all the ice, gave in.
