We had extreme winds this week with many trees down. The winds were at their peak on December 16th when a warm front came through. Temperatures climbed up to 19C. The featured photo from this post was taken on Saturday, December 18th, during snowsqualls.
Sunday, December 12th, 2021 – A windy Sunday morning. You can see trails of sand blowing across a windswept beach.
Sunday, December 12th, 2021 – At some point overnight, this sign an attached ring buoy blew across the bay from Collingwood and ended up at Beach 2. The distance across the bay is likely around 10km. If you look closely, you can see the Town of Collingwood logo.
Monday, December 13th, 2021 – A pleasant evening walk west of beach six into the setting sun. You can see from the footprints that lots of people had the same idea with unseasonably warm weather.
Tuesday, December 14th, 2021 – Looking west from the boardwalk at Beach 2.
Wednesday, December 15th, 2021 – High winds from earlier in the week have swept the beach clean. The water is down dramatically from the same time last year.
Thursday, December 16th, 2021 – It was crazy windy today. Despite winds being from the southwest, there were whitecaps on the water. It wasn’t easy to see walking into the wind because the sand was blowing across the beach.
Thursday, December 16th, 2021 – blowing sand all along the surface of the beach on my way to Beach one.
