A derecho, pronounced deh-REY-cho, is a long-lived, fast-moving thunderstorm

The date was May 21st, 2022, Uxbridge.

Two weeks later we visited a friend and saw the damage to a 20m long - once tall, Maple.

Note the person in the lower right corner of the picture.

Just wind:


So many memories -

This Saturday's visit had an echo of the wind storm.

A kind of post script:

"So far, field crews with the Northern Tornadoes Project have identified at least one EF2 tornado, which hit Uxbridge, Ont., with wind speeds of up to 195 km/h."

Traveling along the road to Greenwood and in Greenwood itself we saw more evidence of damage caused by that brief storm.
