Storms can be terrifying. They remind us that nature is powerful, often unexpected, and can leave us helpless in its path. Take the recent snowstorms in Toronto. Not the worst Ontario has seen, but enough to put life on hold. Picture vehicles locked in garages, schools and businesses shut down. Those of us brave enough, or with no other choice, venture out at our own risk. These events tend to isolate us – we’re glued to our T.Vs and windows instead.
