Patricia visits Eastern Ontario

Tropical storm Patricia is visiting Eastern Ontario tonight, but she is not a welcome guest.  Of course I would pick today to drive from Ottawa to Kingston and back.  As my son and I left Ottawa this morning the skies were gray, but the storm had not hit here yet.  As we drove south and west toward Kingston, the rain started and the wind picked up, making the drive a slow one…

Although the Kingston radio stations were saying the worst of storm Patricia had not hit yet when we left there for the drive back home to Ottawa, the wind and rain had increased considerably.  Darkness had settled in as well, so the drive was not a boring one.

Although we are now home safe and sound, Patricia is still wreaking havoc outside my window. Hopefully when I get up tomorrow morning she will have left the area without leaving too many reminders of her visit.

  1. I hope your encounter with Patricia doesn’t leave a lasting impression! It’s interesting to me that we heard a lot of coverage when Patricia was in Mexico, but then nothing as she leaves for Canada! I had no idea the storm was still a threat. I hope all is well.
