    I was just was watching the news and saw a home in Hall Co. Ga that was knocked off its foundation by 15 feet and split it in half, the owners were on vacation in Fl. The weather man said it was straight line winds, no tornado, saw golf ball hail also on the highways, looked like a winter storm. WOW!

    That sucks!! We have wind speeds around 40-45 mph as I type and a few snow flakes in the air. I know up state here they are going to get around a 1' of snow.:laugh:

    We had that happen here several years ago. It was late at night and my wife and I sat up watching trees in our back yard bend back and forth like rubber bands. Winds flattened several houses and condos. We are right on Lake Michigan and the winds went right up the channel coming into our river. Unbelievable damage...

    High winds and light snow here in Ontario. Last blast of winter and then hopefully things will start picking up!

    60+ mph here. A few barns and a lot of trees down.
