Brutal Windstorm! - More Horrible Weather

Postby bobbing_headz » Mon Dec 11, 2006 5:40 pm

Wow, first the rain and boil water advisory, then the storm storm and now this. Wind hit 60-90 km/h in Vancouver today. Power got knocked out at my school so I got home early (Yay!). Pretty sweet. I heard there was an explosion at the power generators near my school so I may have a headstart on Christmas Vacation ;-D

Didn't think the wind was that strong. Was going to get my son from school. The school is behind our house and the school let us build a gate. Anyway I was opening the gate when one of the Alders in the greenbelt right next to our house split in half. I was maybe 30 feet away. I was thinking which way do I run, but it fell into the greenbelt.

Wow, I've never witnessed winds anything near that. The Early Xmas Vacation sounds sweet though. :-)

I was at a friends house a few years ago in Eugene during a pretty nasty windstorm and huge fir tree fell on his house. The house actually held up pretty well, it ripped through one side of the roof but the peek held and only one branch came through the celling. Scared the crap out of us though. We heard this horriable loud noise and then all of a sudden part of a tree was in the room with us....crazy. He actually got two sky lights and vaulted his celling out of the insurance money he got so it worked out pretty well for him i guess. :-?

Crazy stuff, here in Wisconsin the wierd weather that we get is hail. We've had a lot of hail storms the past couple years.

When I saw West Bend it reminded me of Bend Oregon which in turn reminded me or Mt Bachelor which of course always reminds me of snowboarding. Sniff, sniff I miss Oregon. :,-(

psssh that's only like 30-40 mph, you canadians are always over sensationalizing things with your metric system and stuff. 8-o

Didn't catch the metric system in his post. I knew the winds weren't at 90mph. :-B
