In the midst of a brutal ice storm that wreaked havoc on parts of Canada, causing power outages and travel headaches, there were a few things that warmed our hearts this weekend.

So while communities try desperately to defrost, we’d like to take a moment to appreciate the friendly neighbours who are checking in on the elderly or people who are sharing their power with those in the dark.

And if you saw or heard of something that warmed your heart during this devastating storm, share it in the comments below.
