Never guessed the best gift I’d get this year for Christmas would be electricity from Toronto Hydro. It’s so easy to take hydro for granted … until you get hit with back-to-back ice storms and have to go 3 days without power. Then you quickly realize if the 40F cold inside your house doesn’t kill you, the boredom certainly will. My hat’s off to the folks at Toronto Hydro for working night and day this entire Christmas week to restore power to 250,000 Torontonians. The only thing worse than living through an ice storm without power has to be working in the cold every day to restore it.
