The Independence Day Storm

If you read Dave's blog regularly, you know that we had a nasty storm on Independence Day. He posted three photos of Jonathan's car, which narrowly escaped sustaining major damage. Today I'll show you some more of the storm's effects.

Jonathan and Joshua survey the situation.

A tree sprawls across several parking spaces.

The roots of two trees.
The hole in the ground is about four feet deep and five feet wide.

Some shattered trees.

This truck narrowly escaped being crushed.
At the very least, the roof rack saved the windshield.

The storm didn't last long, but it certainly was intense. I think this storm caused more damage in our neighborhood than Hurricane Isabel did. Hopefully, it will be a long time before we see another one like it.

We thought of you when we say pictures of Washington after the storm - the flooding of the highways around the city. We were lucking and didn't get it here in Brampton. Just south of us got the tail end of it.
