Category 1

At 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon it started to snow and by 6 p.m. it was a full-blown snow storm and the wind had picked up. There were all sorts of weather warnings on the radio and television about the heavy winds and warning people to stay in. This morning we woke up to a power outage (most of the province was in the dark). In our neck of the woods we only got power back at 6 p.m. tonight.

Environment Canada has classified last night's winds as a Category 1 Hurricane.

Glad you made out well. Our power wasn't back on until noon today, but we didn't have any damage. :)
