    I wonder if it has anything to do with the wind coming out of the west, south west.

    Hopefully there were no injuries and it appears the weather now is gorgeous.

    Things we have no control over, have a reason
    Keep playing those slot machines

    Weather synopsis:
    The wind will gradually increase and become more Easterly today through Friday.

    Thanks for the info Andrea.

    I emailed my property manager to check on my home as it is very close to the church. She said our home is fine and we never lost power. She also said the church lost some of the windows and roof tiles.

    As William Shatner has been known to say.... weird or what?
    We here in Toronto went through pretty much the same thing last eve. It was literally like the sky was opening up to show us another form of REALLY bright light. Amazing light show to say the least, and at times it was as if there was a strong strobe light going off, it was that constant.
    Hmm. I guess things aren't that different at our other home.
    Careful out there everyone, Mother Earth's trying to tell us something...

    blessings one and all
