The Great Blackout of 2013.
That's how I'll always remember Christmas of this year, as the time of the Ice Storm and the Branches On The Power Lines. When everything died late on the night of the 21st, and over two hundred and fifty thousand people were left in cold dark houses. The neighborhood looked like a ghost town.
Things are getting back to normal, but I'm very grateful for everything I tend to take for granted. Wishing all the best to the people who worked round the clock to get the city operational again, and to all those still waiting for their houses to be warm and bright again.
And of course, it's a white Christmas. The city is frosted and hung with icicles, snowflakes sifting down from the clouds.
May your days be merry and bright,
And may you always have water, heat and light.
A wonderful festive season to you and yours!
