Storm damage at Golden Lake

July 23, 2012 @ 23:19 By: gordon Category: Cottage, Photography, Weather

My parents sent me a few pictures of the damage around the cottage up at Golden Lake. Fortunately, our cottage was fine, but our neighbours’ properties have a lot of downed trees. Apparently, the neighbours saw a waterspout on the other side of the lake and there are unconfirmed reports of a tornado touching down in the area.

These are on our neighbour’s property:

Some poor U-Haul trailers at the storage place across the highway:

If you look closely, you’ll be able to make out the branches caught on the power lines that caught fire when the power was restored. A few seconds after my mom took this picture the line breaker on one of the poles blew with an impressive “bang!”. The firemen then put the flames out and stuck around to make sure that the fire didn’t flare up again.

A tip o’ the hat to my mom who took these photos.
