Saturday, December 20, 2014, 8:24 AM - A year ago, people from southern Ontario to the Maritimes were staring down an ice storm that would prove to be the worst since 1998.

It began on December 20, 2013, and by the time it was over, up to 30 mm of ice had built up on homes, roads and trees.

Power outages left hundreds of thousands of people in the dark, some of whom wouldn't get their power back until after Boxing Day.

Thousands of highway collisions led to numerous injuries, and six fatalities.

Five more people died from carbon monoxide poisoning; People kept warm with generators and other methods, without accounting for the fumes.

Take a look below for the best pictures from the icy landscape the storm left in its wake.
