my town, and even village have been in the national news the last two days

on sunday morning at 7 or so, winds in excess of over 140 km's (close to 90 miles an hour) hammered miles and miles of yards, towns, and villages.

massive, MASSIVE old trees simply fell over or smapped at hte bottom. think about that...snapping at the bottom.

when trees bend from the wind, they MIGHT break somewhere in the middle.

never at the bottom.

you know those poles they have along highways? those were lifted up...despite being completely aerodynamic. they were lifted up out the ground.

rail cars full of grain were THROWN OFF THE TRACKS.

this wasn't a hurricane or a tornado, this was something else. it was monstrous.

in my village, my yard was easily the best off...everyone else's lost beautiful trees that smashed into their houses...

ah yes...the wonders of mother nature.

no power or water caused problems too...people's basements flooded instantly with no sum pump. not ours, thankfully.

i'll scrounge up some pics...

straight line winds...

They are common in your area of N. America this time of year.

Did it knock the "J" back into order on your laptop?

no, my 7 is still kaput.

straight line winds...but we're talking about a swath no less than 70 miles wide here.

IF I WERE to get CBC News or CTV...I would be informed.

I am too close the Mason-Dixon Line to get CBC.
