The picture above was taken from Inwood (2-3 km away from us) of the tornado either just north of our house or just over it.
You may have read my blog post about the storm we had this weekend that was highly suspect. We wondered if it had been a tornado because the destruction, and it turned out that we were right.
It has been confirmed that an F2 tornado touched down 2 roads north west of us (at those hydro towers that crumpled) and then traveled southeast for 11km at speeds up to 230 km/hr. It was described as a ‘rain wrapped’ tornado, which appears as a wall of white, which was exactly what I described and captured on my video camera. I’m going put it on DVD and then upload it when I get a chance. I only have less than a minute of film of the fire and rain/tornado hitting because we hid in the basement.

We had a close brush with an F-3 a couple of years ago. Nasty things.
Glad you guys are ok!
Thanks, Bryce! It was definitely scary! I have video loading into YouTube now and I'll embed it here soon!
