Cool thanks!

I wish it had of been daylight for that storm even though it practically was with all the lightning.

Not sure I should add Georgina June 8 storm to this thread
We got plastered with a storm last evening around 6:30pm,
Some news articles about it.

I was standing at a gas pump when the sky turned that odd shade of green and it let go, high winds, heavy rain, things flying around, and hail.
Lot of trees and some power polls down all over town, report of at least one house losing its roof.
Many people with no power since 6:30 last night and they were still out this morning.

Got to find someplace to get me a window mount for my camcorder!

Yep! Anything in Ontario to do with a specific storm day can go into a thread if it's already created for that day.

Just found this hydro-one Ontario zoomable map that shows the storms damage corridor to the power grid system (110000 houses out)
http://www.hydroone.com/StormCenter/

I think it is regularly updated so as things get patched up they may disappear off the map

-------------------------------------------------------------
 ==WEATHER EVENT DISCUSSION==
 AFTER RECEIVING NUMEROUS REPORTS OF DAMAGE FROM A SERIES OF
 THUNDERSTORMS THAT IMPACTED VARIOUS PARTS OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO ON
 WEDNESDAY JUNE 8TH, AN ENVIRONMENT CANADA DAMAGE SURVEY TEAM WAS

 OF THE DAMAGE.  THE DAMAGE SURVERY TEAM VISITED THE COBOCONK AREA TO
 THE EAST OF LAKE SIMCOE IN THE KAWARTHA LAKES REGION, AND MINDEN
 HILLS IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF HALIBURTON COUNTY.  TWO POWERFUL LINES
 OF THUNDERSTORMS MOVED THROUGH THESE AREA ON WEDNESDAY.  THE FIRST
 LINE OCCURRED BETWEEN 2 PM AND 3 PM WITH THE SECOND OCCURRING
 BETWEEN 7 PM AND 8 PM.  IT APPEARS THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE DAMAGE
 IN THE COBOCONK AND MINDEN HILLS AREAS OCCURRED WITH THE FIRST LINE
 OF ACTIVITY.  ALL OF THE DAMAGE THAT WAS SEEN WAS CONSISTENT WITH
