I got off easy with a gazebo destroyed and one tree down.

The tornado seems to have passed about 1-2 km from my place. So we escaped the worst of it.
Wow! Glad it's only a gazebo.

One of the tornados hit just a few blocks from my house. More than 300,000 of us are without electricity, which likely won't be restored until early next week. The main transformer for my area took a direct hit. Horrible as it is, it was worse in Dunrobin where entire homes were leveled. No casualties, most thankfully.

We actually get tornadoes with destruction of some kind every 15-20 years in this region.

Canada’s U.S. ambassador talking about NAFTA:



I agree. If Trump retains the right to impose tariffs on whim using section 232, any new agreement is a joke.

At this point and after viewing the way Trump ignorantly ignored Trudeau when the latter approached him during a break at the UN, I'd like to throw caution to the winds and be the one to tell Trump's team to go take a FFAARDonut accompanied by the well known flipping the bird with one sideways for the horse Trump rode in on.

Being of a higher mental, moral and ethical plane requires us to think of all of our citizens welfare however and staying the course is our mission regardless.

I'm all for forgetting the high ground and flipping him the bird.
