Wind storm

Recommended Posts

No but I'm surprised at the lack of tree damage around our neighbourhood,  might be some people still looking for their blue boxes and garbage cans though.  Pretty funny watching them go smoking down the road.

It howled on this side of Lake Erie too, some serious thunder and lightning and rain. I had tumble weeds blowing across my yard, but no shingles!

That was way south of me, as I recall Wilmington is near Cinci?

I said yesterday winds had to be 80KPH on the north shore of Erie, I was wrong, winds hit 90MPH on the weather buoy at Pt. Colbourne before it sunk I was told today. There's a few hundred cords of deadwood on Lakeshore Drive within a kilometer. A good sized branch missed my wife's new car with a glass roof by a few feet. There's snow on the deck. Worse spring windstorm I have seen here in 22 years. Some blue boxes are 500 meters into the farmers fields.

Broke out the Scrabble board!

The weather buoy at Port Colborne has been out of the water for the Winter since November 25th....if it sank, it sank on shore!

  Port Colborne peak gusts were recorded at 104 kph by Environment Canada and 94 kph according to Weather Underground.  In any case, the storm surge was huge and waves were massive.  I took a drive down to the lake side of Long Point and it was pretty scary.  Lots of cottages are in peril all along the point.   The beach behind my friend's cottage was 150 feet wide 2 years ago, half that last year and now he has none as you can see in the picture!  The Port Dover Pier was under water around lunch time yesterday and water all the way up to the Arbour.

Lots of trees down in my little corner of the Kawarthas and many places still without power, we lost ours yesterday afternoon about 2:00 and they say it may be 10:00 tonight before it's restored.

Times like this my stand-by genny is worth it's weight in gold LOL

    • Fierce Storm Last Night.

      Ugly wind and waves up here on Pigeon. Worst around 5 pm. Then settled only to get persistent strong wind most of the night.  Lots of wood floating by. Cold front 8 C this morning. Guys out fishing. Not me. 🙄

    • Waited out the passing storm

      All this talk about the weather guys being right/wrong . They called for lightening and possible rain at 7 am. I had the toon rigged up at 5 am this morning. As I was doing this, I caught flashes of orange lights over the bay. I was egar to get at my launch area and see what was going on. Love a good light show.   And what a light show . Looked like canons going off. I had my go pro rolling, but the video was crap. No worries though. I got to see it and have it tucked away in my brain.  I w

    • Raging T Storm and rain

      Well that one just filled the ditch, overflowed the evestroughs which are perfectly clean and gave a blast of wind that sent someones stroller down the road at warp speed.  Lucky the little one wasn't in it.

    • While we are on the subject of Wind

      Talking about the wind yesterday we got onto a conversation with a few guys that have about 200 years of experience between us on this wind machine called Lake Erie. If any of you are on Erie in a boat and the wind shifts to due east or due west get off that lake ASAP. What is about to follow is never good. I told a couple of guys that were out with me here Perch fishing, and we were hammering Jumbo's at the time, to pack it up now. A beuty of a day the Sun was shining and just enough breeze to

    • The Perfect Storm

      We have been on a point on the north shore of Erie for 24 years. We have seen it all. Water Spouts the size of 24 story TO condos. Once the wind would pick up the water, lift it and dump it 200 yards further east, power went out in Pittsburg PA for 8 hours that storm, the sky was a cornucopia of colours that would eclipse an LSD trip in the 60's. Today was a new one. We had winds in excess of 90 KMH, rare in the spring,. At first the 8 to 10 footers were smashing against the armour rock 30' belo
