We had a terrible windstorm in Niagara Thursday with winds at 100km. Highways and bridges were closed, power was out for hours and much damage. This is our next door neighbour's house with the siding ripped off and my poor Mom's front yard with her beloved tree destroyed. We count our blessings here as nothing can compare to the horrific weather and loss of life which has affected our neighbours to the south. Our little damage here, even though upsetting, pales in comparison. We can't imagine how awful it must have been for families in the states.
