Canton, NY, Jan 12, 2012 — The St. Lawrence valley woke up to ice this morning. Not too much, but enough to bring back memories of the disastrous ice storm of January 1998.
Martha Foley shared memories with Julie Grant, and dug out a copy of NCPR's documentary, "Ice Storm '98: a Retrospective." Here's a section of that, recalling the day Niagara Mohawk delivered a big generator to the NCPR building. You'll hear Martha, former NCPR reporter Mitch Teich, Bob Sauter, our longtime, now former producer Lamar Bliss, and NiMo technician Dave Seymour.
