    I don’t think I’ve ever seen returns that strong over wny.

    Total destruction

    So I'm not a meteorologist but an Engineer by trade. A lot of my time is devoted to solving odd problems and in my experience the simplest answer is usually the most likely root cause. In your case I think the damage was cause by a straight line gust of wind while one side of the tent was open. Three sided structures are against code in a lot of areas because of how prone they are to wind damage. It wouldn't take much for your tent to be picked up by the wind if one side was open and basically turned into a large sail, taking the picnic table with it and causing the destruction you see. as far as the canoes go I'm not surprised they stayed put. Even though they are light there's nothing there to really generate lift. Just my two cents.

    I want to live somewhere that I can drive on hardpack all winter. I hate driving through rutty slush.

    Snow is picking up here in west falls. Nothing major but enough to slowly add up.

    If i remember correctly the late season storm we got last year was too heavy for my tractor. Like 12" of 10:1. I had to get out the snowblower.

    And because my plow on the tractor broke during the last decent snowfall we got...

    I lost three trees (all across my driveway) in the 17 event. I’ll be making a fresh batch of two cycle mix today. On the plus side I’m just starting to get low on firewood

    ^^^^ I think that's way too generalized a statement based on on that data. The density of those points on both graphs points towards nearly complete randomness, not any sort of trend. The R value of that line is prob like .01. (1 being perfect for regression line)

    Looks like there's a bunch of open area out near Cleveland, the entire south shore, and near long point. Could be interesting this afternoon.
