High Winds All Day, Hydro Pole Tipping on Bayview Avenue

-

Last time I checked, the hydro pole on Bayview Avenue just North of St. John’s sideroad in Newmarket was still tipping and the road was closed. A few traffic pylons were blocking the left turn lane on St. John’s sideroad going East and on Bayview Avenue going North drivers were forced to make a right turn as they were struck with the sudden road closure. As we were driving on St. John’s sideroad West the high winds were accompanied by wicked little snow flurries. The good news is that according to Environment Canada the winds will gradually decrease tonight and blowing snow will slowly diminish. Also good news for our fence as it was swaying back and forth all day and it looked like it was going to give up at some point.

According to the Alectra Utilities Twitter account @alectranews there were and still are some power outages throughout Aurora. Hopefully to be restored soon.

Going down memory lane, the last time I saw a hydro pole down on Bayview Avenue was back during a severe thunderstorm in August 2009.  We didn’t have power for about 24 hours and the hydro pole that time actually snapped in half.
