Tornado hits Newmarket

So what’s up with this weird weather? A wonderfully cool summer, then we get humidity beyond comprehension, and then on Aug. 20th, 2009 we got hit by tornados in Southwestern-Ontario. There were three confirmed tornados that touched down and did major damage. The first in Durham, Grey County, the second in Woodbridge, York County, and then in my town, Newmarket, York County.

I couldn’t believe it, as I was on the roads on the way home. Apparently it hit the stables at Davis Dr. and Woodbine Ave., which is basically the limits of Newmarket and Whichurch-Stouffville, but even still it’s caused a lot of damage. I’ve never seen anyting like it, but I was at the gym at the time during while it happend. I could only see lightening, and it was the most spectacular thing I could imagine.
