Weathering the ice storm in the wilderness

While Jack was driving the back roads, Mike Sheridan was working for the state DEC in the Adirondack back country. In the high country, there was no ice, just a massive deluge of rain. Mike now works as the manager of Elk Lake Lodge, but when the ice storm struck in 1998 he was an interior caretaker rescuing stranded snowshoers near Lake Colden. He told his story to Brian Mann.  Go to full article

The Ice Storm of 1998 - rural Ontario

Weather disasters sometimes turn into misery contests: How bad was it? Who had it worse? In Canada, "the" Ice Storm was blamed for at least 25 deaths, close to a thousand injuries, and damages that hit $3 billion. Off and on, over six long days, a stalled front stretching from Eastern Ontario to Nova Scotia, coated everything in inches of ice. With transportation, communication and power disrupted, the basics of life quickly became critical issues for millions of Canadians. Help came from every sector. Canada ordered that nation's largest-ever domestic deployment. Nearly 16,000 military personal pitched in, while another army of repair crews from across North America showed up to tackle the immense job of restoring crippled utilities. Ten years later, people mostly remember how much communities pulled together. Farm-bred Doug Thompson taught English for 35 years before taking up a second career in municipal politics. Lucy Martin caught up with Thompson as he was looking back at photographs from 10 years ago.  Go to full article

The Ice Storm of 1998: more from the archives

It's January ninth. 10 years ago today, most of this countryside stretching from northern New York into southern Ontario and Quebec, was in the dark, buried under the ice that was taking down every distribution line into region. Alexandria Bay was among the last communities to have power restored. But as Mitch Teich found when he visited the shelter at the local school, two weeks after the ice hit, people there were working hard to keep their spirits up as the new routine of ice storm survival continued.  Go to full article
