Weather Event

We are expecting a nasty storm this evening. The worst of three we have had this week. I am not talking about a bit of rain and wind. These are damaging winds to speeds of anywhere between 60 to 110 k. The kind of winds where huge trees come crashing down on houses. On top of that, the rain we were expecting has turned to snow. Some areas have been without power for days and they could still be without until Wednesday or Thursday of next week. If this is the beginning of global warming I have to admit it's getting abit scary. These record breaking storms are coming one after another at alarming force. I hope everyone fairs okay.

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your photographs...very beautiful! I also live on the west coast of Canada and yes, it's been a record year for extreme weather! I hope you get through this coming storm safely and stay warm.

Mother Nature likes to remind us who is really in charge, at times, don’t She just? Stay safe, stay low, stay warm.

So sorry about your extreme weather. We seem to be in a pattern of quiet weather these past couple of months after three years of terrible storms. I don't think we can afford to have any more trees fall on our home or vehicles. Have a good plan in place if you lose your power, and I hope you all fare well over there. I'll be keeping you in my prayers.

Sandy,
He no photo? We on the east coast are enjoying very mild weather - should be in the 60's today and we may break a record. It seems when you guys are having a bad year we have mild winters and vice versa. I guess its the small el nino that's causing your extreme weather. I heard last week that Europe was experiencing record breaking warmth and that the chestnut trees apparently the harbinger of spring and other fruit trees and shrubs were already blooming and budding out! Weird.

I'm sorry about the weather, Sandy. I hope that you come through it just fine. We, on the other hand, are having unseasonably warm weather here in the southern US. Stay warm and dry!

Wow Sandy! It all sounds pretty nasty and scary. Hope you and yours fair okay through it. Hope the fire wood is cut and stacked!

I just saw some of your dreadful weather on the TV news. How crazy is this world with weather like that in parts of the US, whilst more than 1 million hectares (about 2.5 million acres) have been burnt out in Australia, with fires still raging.

I hope the storms pass soon and that not too much damage is done to your garden. Guess it's good that most plants are dormant at the moment.

We are getting some weird weather down here too. I wish it would actually warm up a bit down here. It still feels like winter.

I hope that everything worked out ok, and there's no damage

the weather is only now getting down to the seasonal norm here, of cold. We had some bad winds last week across the city which managed to distroy 12 or more homes..

Keep safe...
