Chris Mei looks back at the Ontario ice storm that impacted the holiday season. The Dec. 19, 2013 ice storm was a “remember where you were” event.

The storm was a result of a low-pressure system that formed over Texas and made its way to Ontario. The warm front from Texas mixed with the cold air mass in Eastern Canada.

The storm officially began on Dec. 19 and dissipated by Dec. 23, but there were prolonged impacts. The storm reached Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Canada, Maine, New England, New York, Michigan and Arkansas.

The affected areas were faced with varying conditions, including extreme snow, an ice storm, and a tornado outbreak.
