<p>During the Ice Storm in January 1998 where we lived for a week at the airport in the basement of my husbands workplace in Montreal (we were lucky - we only lost power for one week - some were without power for a month or more). I worked on a baby quilt by hand for my friends son Josh to pass the time - and not worry so much. He's presently VERY involved in minor league hockey and hoping to one day play for the NHL.</p>
<p>A McGill University study involving 36 Mum's has revealed how the power outage affected their fetuses DNA. They are now teenagers are more susceptible to develop asthma, diabetes or obesity.</p>
<p>His Mum inform when she saw my post on Facebook - that he's now taking a daily inhaler plus when playing hockey - he uses a rescue inhaler!!!</p>
