I am not sure how many of you are aware, but on May 15th, the New Fairfield, Brookfield, New Milford area got hit with a tornado, a macro-buster that reached over 110mph and had a path of about 3.5 miles

I was home at the time and was able to see part of the funnel coming towards us.  Very scary.   The day became night, rained so hard and then it sounded like a freight train was just passing through.  A couple of minutes later, it was clear again, but I could see the destruction.  A 125' pine tree in front of my house feel, luckily away from my house.  It ripped the electrical box and cable box and wires from the side of my house and dropped them into the street.

We had about 12 pine trees between my neighbor and myself, those trees were twisted and bent and fell over to their side.

Almost every other tree was down in our community. 

No Power, only 3 days of emergency water,  No internet , we almost felt isolated.   We couldn't drive around because of all the down wires and trees, but we walked to neighbors houses.  We finally got power restored on 5/23 and Internet on 5/25.   Luckily the back up system for our community water system had just run dry, but the power came back to refill everything

All and all tons of damage, all the towns mentioned were declared disaster areas.  But all in all, it could have been worse, 4 people were killed, in what could have been a much higher number.

I have to give so much thanks to the power company.  We had trucks in from Ohio, South Carolina, Vermont all helping getting things restored.  These guys worked 24/7 with emergency power lights to get things back into order.  Its times like this you realize what kind of thank less jobs that service and utility company's have to do.


Well, I am back and should be posting as normal again

  • Dang, I live on the southeast coast and deal with hurricanes but I couldn't live in an area with tornadoes.  They come but are fairly rare here.

    Up until 10 years ago, I can not remember any tornado in the Northeast Coast.  Always felt that the Midwest was the tornado capital.

    It seems that there has been a shift/change in overall weather.
