HANG ON OUT THERE

Recommended Posts

The wind and the super gusts of up to 100 km so far is crazy. The CTV tower wires sound like a 747 is just outside here. Calling for even stronger gusts up to 115 km this evening.

I currently have 4 x 10,000 lb ratchet straps, 2 chains with bear traps on them diagonal across my hangars front door and 2 of my 3/8" cross cables up to keep it from blowing over sideways. Direct West wind on 100 feet of 16' wall + the roof and I think the only thing keeping it upright is the fact my aircraft insurance is valid for 3 more days! Gusts are 90 to 100kph currently..

Lost power for 4 hours ,  2 sections of wooden fence blew off, just laying down and just need to nail it back , wife offered to help but told her too dangerous with this wind, we'll wait till the wind drops, I'll take the girls out on a leash until then.

Looking out now, that wind has shifted, as the flags do tell. Direct out of the north. Here comes that cold front, and I do not like that mix.

It's all pretty quiet here just below the escarpment. Must be something going right over my head.   ;)

From a FB post on Ontario Tornado Watches page.

A source is reporting to our own Sabrina vZ. that there is “HALF A HOUSE IN THE STREET” near King and Gage in Hamilton due to the winds.

Has anyone else seen this or can share photos with us?

Updates to come.

Good thing Mike doesn't work on Friday's.

He would have been waaaaay busy taking measurements every 15 minutes with this blow!!

a rental property on our street had new shingles put on in the last 4 years and the shingles were flying off the roof today, I noticed the plastic strips were still on the shingles, I always thought they were supposed to be removed before being nailed down.

      Well you can but it's a trip lol. Couldn't do it without my son for a guide, he does all the heavy stuff (I use to take him fishing, now he takes me )😊. Left my son's place early Sunday morning on our ATVs with all our gear for a 15 km trip, beautiful day light wind, it had rained the night before so trails were nice for riding (not too much dust) .  This is one of countless little back lakes we like to fish, because it's kind of out of the way not many people bother with it..

    • Hello there.

      Hi there, Im new here, hope to get some tips and help from all you experts. I have been bass fishing for the last 2 years, my Personal Best is about 2.5 pounds. I fish a couple local lakes close to my home, but they are pressured lakes so there a bit harder to catch. I should mention i am a bank angler and do not have access to the whole lake, there are very few places to fish from shore on my lake, but i have found one good spot where the bass seem to be pretty stacked but i am having prob

    • The future of Diesel. Is there one? NF

      I have a young fella that is the son of a pal that helps me around the property doing odd jobs. A smart and a mature kid beyond his years. He is 17 and is currently doing a co-op with the intent to get his diesel Mechanics licence. Will there be diesel fueled vehicles in 25 years from now? I can't really predict that with the aim to get away from fossil fuels in the near future, especially diesel fueled big rigs but I don't see a long term future if it is up to our Gov.s. I was told when I went

    • Be careful out there

      Just a public service announcement cause I don’t want to see anyone run into trouble out there. two weekends ago on the 17th I was in an area fishing a spot that I fish very regularily on 3 feet of ice after the slight warm spell we had. Temps were -13 and everything seemed great until I went through. Only went up to my waist and was wearing my survival suit. The warm spell and wind pushed a lot of warm water into the basin and sure enough an old hole (probably one of my own to be honest) h
