Reported death of a woman tring to get home and a missing Firefighter. A potentially unfortunate outcome, if the story holds true, a very sad day:

I've got some standing puddles in my back yard slowly receding, and I saw some trees uprooted on the drive home from work. Wind was brisk when it moved through here, but not as bad as further up the coast. Ready for some dry sunny weather, though.

No power at home 48 hours later. Town apparently doesn't own, or does not have enough "ROAD CLOSED - LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY" signs, because there are numerous secondary roads still blocked by trees, but you wouldn't know that until you go 1/2 mile down from the closest intersection. Did see some electrical crews out. Figure restored by Wednesday PM at the earliest.

As much as this is bad for everyone else, the whitewater kayakers are celebrating!

Could you send some of your extra water out to Idaho? We're still quite dry.

My figure will be off. Power crews down the street fixing lines. Should have power within the next few hours I would think (there are some other feeder lines down I think ). Actually very surprised.

Thanks to everybody for the information.
We had some very minor flooding in south central Ontario.
Most of the rest of the province does not have enough snow to worry about now.
It is so short of snow here I am wondering how bad our forest fire season will be.
May set off to explore without any sense of direction or how to return.
