The 1998 ice storm that attacked Eastern Canada and North-East United States caused millions of dollars in damages especially to the electrical distribution system. 1000 hydro towers collapsed plus 24,000 wooden poles down made for weeks of no electricity for 1000's of people. It did bring out the best in people as there were many stories of individuals helping complete strangers with food and shelter.

This was the Mother of all the storms I have lived through in Jefferson County New York, Jan the 8th, 1998. This book will bring me back to how we survived the storm with the help of our good neighbors, The Freemans.
