Ground Control to Major Tom

Dear Tom,

It's still windy here at home. Lots of downed trees and power lines. Lots of folks without heat or electricity. Our power did not go out, but the internet was down for over 24 hours. I can live with that. It wasn't cold when the wind kicked up on Wednesday, but it's cold now. Drove to Wegmans yesterday and decided to take the "scenic route" home. Down 250 to Lake Road where I thought I might take a drive down by Webster Park. I found a large tree blocking the way. (Holt Rd was already closed from 104 north. I should have known.)

I set off toward home along Lake Rd but had to turn around just past County Line due to downed trees and power lines. School was closed yesterday because of all the loose power lines. I don't know what happened today. I opted to stay home myself, since the wind is ferocious and I don't absolutely need to be anywhere. I can't imagine the work crews have everything cleaned up yet.

March has been a blast so far!


PS. Check out the pictures. Windy days


  1. Oh my goodness!!! That is scary!!!!! Someone was telling us about some awful wind in southern Alberta.......we live in the north central part.....and there were semi's rolled over in the ditches from the wind :-( Great photos.

    1. Now it's not only windy, but well below freezing. And the electric crews are still trying to get power restored.
