Finally power and internet access have been restored to the point where it was possible for raw milk farmer Michael Schmidt to transmit these photos from the scene of tornado destruction around Glencolton Farms in Durham Ontario:
Once a beautiful barn... now after the tornado, it's just a shambles.
Remnants of destroyed barn scattered for miles.
Uprooted tree. That's Michael Schmidt standing beside it to give some idea of scale.
Glencolton Farms' hayfields, after the tornado passed.
Branches scattered all over the pasture lands.
Crumpled roofing from a neighbour's barn litters the field.
More uprooted trees from near where the young cattle used to graze.
Hydro crews working to restore power.
This neighbour was not so fortunate -- house and barn destroyed.
Cleanup effort begins...
Light at the end of the tunnel, beauty amid the carnage...
