supergenius, I don't know why you connect 5 years in Calgary to the current weather event near Sarnia Ontario. Calgary is situated in a semi arid steppe environment, with about 17 inches of precipitation annually. Sarnia is in a much more snow prone region.
Here in Annapolis Valley we also had a weather "experience" last night. It is a lot warmer than southern Ontario, at 17 Celsius last night, but we had what some say was wind as bad as hurricane Juan. In my yard, 2 giant pines came down and miraculously nobody was hurt; there was no damage to Chez ASD, either. The power was out of course but heck it's warm so we won't freeze and it's Christmas so I saved on the light bill.
