Winter Wonderland iBook

I’ve written an iBook about last year’s ice storm. You’ll need an iPad or a Mac running Maverick to read it. It’s free.

On December 20, 2013, southern Ontario was hit with an ice storm followed by a deep freeze. Over an inch of ice accumulated in some places, breaking branches and cutting off power to many houses. In the deep freeze that followed, hydro crews worked in -30° temperatures to reconnect electricity, but many households were without power for a week.

I was lucky. My neighbourhood has underground power lines, and while it was dangerously slippery we could actually enjoy the beauty of the storm and its aftermath.

This short 14-page book contains photographs and interactive panoramas showing the beauty of the ice storm.

Added a couple of panoramas to the Virtual Ontario gallery. Impressions of the Christmas ice storm.
Links and Things
Not many links at the moment — this is mostly here because otherwise the page doesn't display a scroll bar. As long as I need a sidebar, though, I'll mention a great photoprinting place (at least if you're in Canada):

Decent prices, great products, and good service. They only deliver in Canada, though.
