Was spared with no damage to my house or property. Power came back on late Saturday night, but not in time to spare the fridge it contents. Phew that cut bait that was frozen was a bit ripe to say the least. Parents house in Richmond was somehow spared; had 12 trees down, but not one hit their house! All of them fell just perfect.
