Summer Storm

A wild storm hit our area Monday July 26th. Severe winds hail and a lightning show blew through the area leaving behind  hundreds of  downed trees, damaged  cottages and vehicles. Caddy Lake and Ingolf were especially hit hard. Power was out  for many for as long as 48 hrs. Tuesday morning we were kept busy serving coffee and muffins to all those without power.  Thankfully there were no injuries, but we have heard many stories of families huddled together as they listened to the howling winds that some described as sounding like a freight train. (rumor has it a funnel cloud was spotted near Caddy Lake) Some brave souls watched the show from their verandas and decks, while apparently others waited out the storm under a picnic table on the Mantario trail!
