in Chicago the first time it snows every winter. It's like folks forgot how to drive .
Ice breaks trees that fall on houses and power lines. Massive power outages caused by ice storms cannot be handled by local utility repair people and outside help needs to be called. The same can happen with derecho winds that affect a wide path. We've had both in the past several years. We had a Winter ice storm where power was out for more than a week and a Summer derecho that took even longer. In Winter this means a greater chance of frozen water pipes. I'm not sure how Daniel Boone made it through these power outages.
