All we had was some very heavy rain but I found this story about a funnel cloud (with picture) that happened north of here.

Thanks Sheila. I would like to see one with my own eyes, but not near our house.

Update from ENVIRONMENT CANADA



AWCN11 CWTO 241746
Weather summary for all of Southern Ontario and the
National Capital Region issued by Environment Canada
At 1:42 PM EDT Friday 24 June 2011.

-------------------------------------------------------------
==weather event discussion==

Second tornado of the season confirmed from June 23 storm.

A number of intense thunderstorms affected the national capital area
on the evening of Thursday, June 23. One thunderstorm developed
South of Kanata, then moved over Kanata and across the Ottawa River
to the Aylmer area of Quebec. Several independent photographs or
videos of a tornado were studied by Environment Canada, and in
addition a damage survey team investigated the shirley's bay area
this morning. While no damage was noted, the photographic evidence is
sufficient to justify calling this the second tornado in Ontario for
this season. It is possible that the observed tornado occurred over
the Ottawa River. Due to a lack of observed damage, it is rated as a
Fujita scale zero tornado with winds between 60 and 110 kilometres
per hour. The Fujita wind damage scale goes from zero (weakest) to 5
(strongest). Ontario normally gets around 12 tornadoes each season.
The summer severe weather season runs from late April until early
October.

This statement will be updated if new information becomes available.

This weather summary contains preliminary information
And may not constitute an official or final report.

I have not seen one in person yet. The closest I came was seeing a rotating cloud from a passing thunderstorm about 8 years ago. There was no funnel, but it was neat to see the cloud rotate, I had not seen that before.
