Stay indoors! we messaged back. Then Terry and I turned to the weather network, wondering: What kind of storm was passing through her region? Would it be coming our way, too?!
A few hours later, strong westerly winds did arrive. Would any fences be knocked down here? we wondered...
At 9:30 the power went out... After a few minutes I went to bed... No point sitting in the dark. Terry, on the other hand, hunted for flashlights. He can't rest in a storm.
I headed over to see what the wind had tossed into the tree.
No, it was a barbecue cover!!
Mary took a close-up showing how tangled it is! It looks like it's not going anywhere for a long time!
Yes, the wind had been strong enough to knock them down in Ottawa, too.
