The Big One of 2012…

And I mean wind storm.

We were warned. Usually when they warn us, the storm falls short. Like way short. Today, not so much.

I am totally thankful that the only thing that happened in my yard was my bench getting flipped upside down and a few more of the hedge trees going sideways.

It’s good, I am lucky. Other people sustained some serious damage. People’s houses were decimated by this storm. Roads were closed. Stores were like a ghost town, the power was out most of the day. Some people still don’t have power as I type.


The Monkey tree in Willow Point…apparently, it wasn’t going out alone…

The beach, wanted to be on the highway…

My best friends, brother in law’s house…this totally sucks…

The Old Island Highway to Courtenay was closed…ya think?

Sucky that it landed on their garage…awesome shot :)

Stories Beach…wires down, it gets worse…

And worse again…

The people on the other side of that tree, cannot get out of their yard.

This is my friend Linda’s neighbours house. Crappy…yes?

They cleaned the debris up with the snow plow, I am not even kidding you here…

See? Really…

This sucks…on every level…

This house is brand new…they aren’t even finished building it yet…and the tree fell about 4 feet from the freaking house. Lucky…yes.


I would say that they are pretty thankful for whatever forces spared their nearly finished house :)

Then we went to the dock…and saw this. I would say he is lucky the truck is where he left it…because look at this…

The beach doesn’t belong there, it is actually about 100 feet from the beach.

No picnic today folks…

And you definitely want to watch where you are walking.

Oh my freaking god…seriously.

Ya…moved concrete like cardboard.

And logs like toothpicks…

The wrath of nature, needs to remind us once and a while, that we have no control over her. AT ALL. And we will most likely lose if that is what she sets her mind to.

Remember that folks. Get prepared for an emergency, not matter what it may be.
