We have had some bad weather over the past couple of days. Tuesday being the worst, with winds gusting up to 100km an hour. This type of strom is called a Weather Bomb!
Weather bombs are the most severe of all winter storms. Weather bombs are known for dumping heavy amounts of rain and snow, producing hurricane-force winds, and creating high surfs that cause severe beach erosion and coastal flooding.

The wind caused waves on Lake Superior to reach over 8 feet tall. This freighter weathered out the storm in our harbour. You should be able to see the Sleeping Giant directly behind the boat.
It's hard for little 10lb dogs to go outside in such wind. Mom was afraid that we would get swept away. She carried us outside with our leashes attached and put us in a sheltered area to do our business. We are happy to report that we did not have one accident in the house.
