Default Re: Nov.12.03 - MDT for SRN ON

heres what darksky posted for 2003, including the nov 12 episode. I recall Niagara Falls getting golf ball to tennis ball sized hail once can't rmember if that was the time or not.

i found this (12-13 November 2003, Southwestern Ontario: An intense storm system starts with a line of severe thunderstorms and damaging winds the evening of the 12th. By morning, the howling, polar winds gusting in excess of 110 km/h (68 mph) drives snowsqualls over the region, damaging buildings and trees and cutting power to thousands) here.

tnis from EC, Witches of November Storm

During one storm in November 2003, the water level at Buffalo rose by 7 feet (2.1 m) with waves of 10–15 feet (3-4.5 m) for a rise of 22 feet (6.7 m).[8] Meanwhile, at the western end of the lake, Toledo experienced a similar drop in water level

As a side note i found this

Great Waterspout Outbreak - 2003. A meteorological oddity of sorts! Waterspouts are tornadoes over water. According to Environment Canada meteorologist Wade Szilagyi, a record waterspout outbreak occurred in late September-early October over the Great Lakes. It was the largest outbreak that has ever been recorded - an unbelievable 66+ waterspouts. The outbreak was attributed to a cold air mass, and associated major upper trough, which remained entrenched over the Great Lakes for a period of a week. Above-normal lake temperatures also contributed to this unusual event.
