As we all know, the tornados that struck down on Thursday afternoon were absolutely unbelievable.  I can’t get over the damage it left in Markdale (3 minutes from where I am located) and Durham.  Who would have thought?  I remember the small tornado that ripped through my backyard on December 1, 2006 and other farms located on my road, but that one didn’t even compare to the F2 tornado that occurred last week.

We always think scary weather only happens in the Caribbean, the southern states in the U.S., and many parts of the eastern hemisphere, but never southwestern Ontario.  Nature is speaking to us and it’s certainly a wake-up call.

I took a few photos with my cell phone’s camera in Markdale, not too long after the storm was over.


This is the front of my Grandma’s house. That tree is not supposed to be lying on top of the roof.


If you look down this street, you’ll see a trampoline hanging from the hydro wires.


This uprooted tree and sidewalk here was unbelievable. Everything was unbelievable!  It is amazing how neighbours and communities come together in situations like these.
