I suppose not... on the upside, you could walk to a number of our wrecks in winter if you come in a month or so. Just saw a hole in the ice and jump in!
The power situation isn't much better in Tobermory. I swear they have one line that runs up from "civilization". The line often comes down in the winter due to wind and it an take several days to restore power. I'm glad I heat with wood and have a propane stove. I have an electric water pump of course, but I can always get a bucket of water out of the lake if I need it... or just leave town... although the highway can be closed for long periods too, depending on the wind and snow...
The main thing to remember is to never let the liquor cupboard get low! I recently discovered that Pineapple Rum is a perfectly satisfactory breakfast beverage!
