[VIDEO] A Look Back At Quebec's Devastating Ice Storm Of 1998

Quebec's ice storm of 1998, I remember like it was yesterday. I was sitting in my first 9th grade French class back after the Christmas Holidays, when we were all told to go home because the freezing rain was getting out of control. What came after was in my memory, a really fun time because we had 2 weeks off class, where I played about 400 hours of Pokemon Blue. That said, our family had access to a generator for most of it, so we were pretty lucky. For many thousands of other people in the province of Quebec, however, that was not the case and it was an almost unreal ordeal. This video truly illustrates the devastating impact the experience was many Montrealers.
