What were you doing 23 years ago when the limbs began to snap and the lights went out?
The ice storm of 1991 began 23 years ago today. By the next morning, a clear glaze -- nearly 2 inches thick in some spots -- covered Monroe and nearby counties.
The ice sent trees into houses and power lines to the ground. More than 200,000 RG&E customers alone lost power -- some of them for two weeks.
Damage and cleanup costs of more than $500-million made it the most costly storm in state history.
