Storm Derecho hit Ottawa City Ontario. We were affected with damages.
We just moved to the farm house on May 1, so we have not unpack yet. It was a bit of chaos, and we navigate it through. Our roof was partially off, the barn was totalled - totally destroyed and lots of trees fall. We did not get our power back until June 30th. We camped out and thank goodness it was summer.
