I could not believe the speed which Elaine posted this story. It just rolled through my area 15 minutes ago. I am very impressed! Thankyou to all at 250.

Weird. In CH it wasn’t even what I would call a mild storm.

Hardly any type of storm here on the Hart. A rain burst was about all. Then some drizzle.

    I’m assuming you missed the large tree that fell on Dagg then? Blocked the whole road off, debris all over when I drive home.


Not much of a storm here. A few gusts of wind, then a bit of drizzle and a few more gusts and that was it.
