Hope everyone is safe. We just spent the last 21 hours on backup generator power. The latest report said that there are still about 130,000 people without power in Ontario. Yesterday, I was at the veterinarian's at the peak of the storm and I thought the roof was going to blow off. Apparently our top wind gust was at 105 km/h. It was also quite frightening trying to dodge all the debris flying across the roads.

Yup, you guys got caught up in some of the same systems that cause so much havoc in the US.
This has certainly been an impressive spring in some places weather wise.
