On one hand, it’s caused massive amounts of downed trees, power outages, damaged property and folks who went without power for almost a week, in freezing temperatures. On the other hand, it really brought people together. Neighbours, family and friends with power opened their doors, the city pulled together, and in a touching gesture of solidarity 42 hydro workers from all over Manitoba gave up their own Christmas to fly in and help.
