Winter Wonderland . freezing rain in Toronto


A few days before Christmas, freezing rain turned the city into a winter wonderland.
It was actually the first time I was seeing freezing rain.
Everywhere was covered in ice and looked magical.
Despite its breath taking beauty, it caused serious electricity shortage
and more than half of the city didn't have electricity for many days! up to 7 days!
Many trees broke because of  heavy ice than was weighing on the branches...

Well it's all in the past now :o) Hope you enjoy these photos!








The last two photos are taken by my dad. He is a wonderful photographer.
