Hi Everyone,

We had a tornado last night.

We only had overturned lawn furniture that kinda flew around the yard.

But there is supposed to be extensive damage in our town.

My husband just told me there is damage on our street.

Alex and I will go on the damage hunt.

We need to know our friends here are ok.

If you are one of our friends from town who read the blog could you comment on the blog and tell us if you have damage.

I am not being catty about this at all.
I am quite worried about my friends here in Newmarket and area.
And this is why:

The News is reporting this:

Last night the winds got over 95 km/hr
Reports of a tornado are still being confirmed
At this time 170 thousand people are without power, and could be for 3 or 4 days
Newmarket sustained the most damage
2 people were killed
A camper in north algonquin park, and a camper near Peterborough died when a tree fell on his camper (caravan)

Now you know why I am worried.
I have photographs of the storm, and my revamp of my post is ready.
I will let you know when the post is up.

In the meantime we are going to check on everyone.

We just had a lot of big trees down around town but it was pretty scary wasn't it? I was on the computer and didn't realize it was so windy and electrical! Glad it wasn't worse!

Thanks for your comment on my site ..I left you one there.
