Uhmmm … remember that storm I was talking about? You know the one that hit Toronto at about 4 pm yesterday? Caused a massive temperature drop … although who could tell with the humidity!
Well … as gusts of rain were whipping past my dining room window like heavy snowfall bringing with it the lids from my garbage cans that had been secured and moving my barbecue down the lane way trees were crashing down on houses only two blocks away!
My area of the city was the worst hit by the storm.
You’ve got to read this CTV news story, and take a look at the photos to see what kind of damage the massive storm caused. There’s a video on the same page that you can watch, but I can’t get it to play on my computer. You might have better luck.
I knew it was a bad storm. I just didn’t realize how bad it truly was nor that I was in the middle of it.
Geez Toronto is like 60 miles across and I had to have all that action in my neighborhood? I’m just thankful it missed us. Our neighbor has a huge maple tree. If it had come down it would have crushed our roof too!
I’ll be taking a look at that tree in the morning to make sure it looks healthy!
I hate storms. Stuff like this just seems to re-enforce my dislike of storms.
Well, at least my gardens got a good watering!
