Crazy weather

I conducted two retirement planning seminars today in Windsor ... one at 8am and the other at 12:30pm.

I hit the road for home right after the second one.

As I got to Waterloo, the skies got dark ...

And then it poured. Big heavy rain! It was hard to drive because visibility was so poor.

Then it cleared up ... until I was in Guelph and it started again.

Almost home. The traffic on the 427 and Gardiner was brutal ... practically a parking lot!

As soon as I got home, I headed to a condo board meeting (I'm on the board) at Politica.

All of a sudden, the skies opened up and it started raining really hard, along with thunder and lightening. It was crazy!

There were tornadoes just north of Toronto in Vaughan today ... scary!

Yeah, didn't someone die too? For Canada this is right crazy weather. All summer has been just wonky. Climate change or a blip?

I am glad you got through the storm unscathed... Crazy weather has been hitting the Souther Hemisphere as well! Here in Australia, we are having plesant winter days of 27-28C!

This post also has SO many similarities... Windsor is near where I am live in Australia, my Aunt lives in Waterloo in the UK city of Liverpool, on a recent trip for a Conference, I met a Uni Professor from Guelph & my late wife's mothers maiden name is Gardiner! Freaky or what!

I am so glad the Tanya sent me see your blog...
