Survived Hurricane 'Sandy"




 High winds caused by Hurricane 'Sandy' snapped and toppled trees across Toronto and Guildwood Village. Besides broken and uprooted trees I did not see any major damages to properties in our area.
During the storm no power outage occurred in our neighbourhood. Downtown Toronto as well as  surrounding communities the storm caused more damage to cars and properties. Rain continued falling during the week.  
Today the lake is quiet and calm...
                                                                    and we can count our blessings.
*************
Hurricane Sandy ...Orkanartige Windböen verursachten viel Schaden in Toronto und umliegenden Gemeinden. Gestürzte Bäume, demolierte Häuser und Autos, wurden von der Innenstadt von Toronto berichtet. Tausende von Bewohnern waren ohne Strom für ein paar Tage.
In unserer Guildwood Village, bemerkte ich nur wenig Sachschaden, aber einige  gestürzte Bäume.
Während der Woche fiel weiter Regen. 
Heute war der Ontario See ruhig..
                                                                              und ich bin dankbar, dass der Sturm vorbei ist.
