She's pretty fuckin gnarly out there.  Cue the power outages. 

Ones you installed?

With the rain/meltdown our sump has been working overtime. The ground is completely saturated and we need some hot dry days. Without the standby genny the basement would be flooded

Been a couple of momentary off and back on with the power here in Toronto. There's a good sized tree that had a big chunk of it come off down the street from us.

A portion of my fence blew down and the pool heater and filter pump fence snapped off at the base.......I will re-evaluate tomorrow.  Nothing money can’t fix.

no I had the roof shingles done - they bend and snap, never buy this type again 

120 km/hr winds  can cause damage lol

I have Fiberglas shingles. Currently about 18 years old. Still look great.

I was in a new neighbourhood when the wind hit (houses are all less than 6 years old). The street was literally littered with shingles. Large patches missing off many roofs including the property I was working at. I was walking between the houses when a 3 shingle slab came thumping to the ground 5 feet away from me.

an hour tomorrow I should have it all fixed up - not going up until the wind dies down

Power went out @ 8:30 & fired up the genny. We've had it & the Gen R Link for about 3 years but have never had to use it, so it's practice to set it up & getting it running.

Power back on around 10

We might be without hydro in the area till sometime Sunday. I was heading up the dirt road to get into our place and saw cars coming the other way which is rare. A lady stops and says the road is closed. Good thing didn't have to go all the way to turn around

Our power was out for approx. four hours. I thought oh well and went to bed. Then suddenly realized the sump pump has been running because of the rain from last night. Had to get up and start the generator to clear out the sump hole. Twenty minutes later the power comes back on.

A fence blew down from the wind?  Maybe you'd better hire a pro next time.....

roof done - hot as fuck up there

torn 3 shingles from a shed I have to repair/enlarge, couple tubes of tar and all set.

found at least 30 shingles with leading edge flapping - other than that roof looks mint again 

 

next high job is getting the birds out of the soffit - hate those big black birds
