As friends know, it’s been surprisingly difficult to get accurate weather data for the table above. I’m often posting pictures a week or two after the fact, and need historical weather data. Weather Underground is a great initiative for crowd sourcing weather data. I’ve been considering setting up a station myself, but I’m grateful to the operator(s) of “
IWASAGAB2” near Glen-Dale Community Park at Wasaga Beach. This is the closest site to my daily beach walks and this is my new “go to” site for weather history.

Sunday, November 24th, 2019 – Taken near the 13th street beach exit looking northwest across Nottawasaga Beach.
Tuesday, November 26th, 2019 – I keep going on about the damage from high water I know. This picture shows the power of November storms. I can’t budge most of these rocks that previously formed a breakwater along this awesome property east of 18th street. The damage is enormous. Heavy equipment is required to fix this. If waves can do this much damage, I hate to think how damaging the ice break-up will be in the Spring. I think the smart money is sucking up the damage and planning to re-assess during summer 2020,

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019 – We’ve had snow squall warnings all week.
Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 – you can tell that the waves were higher overnight because of the frozen beach and ice caked on the vegetation.
Saturday, November 16th, 2019 – this is new in the last week. High wind and waves have “sheared off” a ~20-30 feet of sand dune leaving a vertical wall at the high extend of the waves. This happened literally overnight. Please follow and like us:
