Weekend disturbance

Saturday evening and all through the night until Sunday afternoon we got extremely heavy winds and pouring rain. It rained non-stop for 24 hours. Most of the basements in the neighbourhood were floaded. We were some of the few lucky ones and that's just because our house is on a hill.

We lost a couple of trees on our property.

And what comes with heavy winds ? ... well yes, we lost power from 1 a.m. Sunday morning to 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon. So out comes the camping equipment - yippy !!!!!

Hey Kim,
Welcome to my blog (i guess to put it simple - my world). I just left a comment on your blog... let me know.

Wow, mother nature was busy in your part of the world. I remember one summer when we had a black out for almost 2 days it was fun bringing out the camping equipment to make breakfast.

Hi Colleen,
Well you know me and camping - they we go together soooooo beautifully. Any excuse to get out the camp stove...
