I told you it was windy!
A blurb in the newspaper documented the high winds we had yesterday - Tim often parks his truck between the red truck and this boat. Luckily he was driving it so his brother could use my car so there wasn't any damage.
It amazes me when we get these big winds that the power doesn't go out and we rarely hear of trees toppling over. I guess the lack of permafrost allows the tree roots to run deep.
We've heard reports from pilots seeing waterspouts out by Berner's Bay - one raising from the water up to the cloud level at about 3500 feet. I haven't seen any photos. We've been seeing small ones in front of the house but these don't last very long.
