Wow was it ever windy today. I think it started at around 2:30am as the winds out here were just vicious. It knocked out the power in my whole block and you could even feel the house rumble by a little at times. Too bad it was too dark for me to take video clips as my digital camcorder isnâ€™t that great without a light source (Maybe itâ€™s time to upgrade). It was so windy that outside you could see what looked like a thunder and lightning storm when really it was the power lines going haywire. I did manage to sleep through the night afterwards as I figured it wasnâ€™t going to be that bad.
When I woke up, the power was still gone from my entire block and outside there were a lot of branches along with some fences being completely knocked over. When I went to downtown Vancouver, it didnâ€™t seem too bad except some trees did fall over. After reading the news, apparently the wind speeds were going over 157 kilometres an hour. Itâ€™s all over now and fortunately it doesnâ€™t seem like anything extremely bad happened as a result of this aside from some minor nuisance like the traffic jams.
