Man oh man did we ever get a bad one last night. It was unreal!! I was sitting out on the front porch and it got really dark, clouds swirling but not much else. Then the wind suddenly shifted, it started really raining hard and coming straight out of the north. By the time I stood up, turned aro und to fold the chair (about 2.5 seconds) this wall of wind came straight out of the west and just ripped right down the street ripping up trees, sheds and everything else. I could not see even 2 feet out the front windows---it was like a huge sandstorm that covered everything My gazebo (which was bolted into 2x4’s that were drilled into the ground with cement) was ripped completely off. Someone’s tire and chunks of trees were in the driveway, Another shed blew up the road and was squashed on someone’s front lawn, a neighbour up the road had a huge tree come through the back of his house and the woman who lives across the road had a huge part of her tree break off and blocked the road out front. It was a total frigging mess!! Yet just a few streets over, they didn’t get hardly anything.
Here's a couple of pictures I took:
What once looked like this:
