    Friggin Power went out watching Million Dollar Baby. There's a pretty bad storm out there, reminds me of the tail-end of the hurricane we got a few years ago here (Burlington[GTA], ON). It knocked down our 40 foot tree on our drive way. What's the worst you've had?

    Hurricane Gilbert. Category 5.

    or

    Heat wave of 2001. It got up to 112 degrees in Austin, Texas. That's 112 with the extreme Texas humidity, not that dry, sissy 112 in like Arizona or something.

    the worst i remember was gale force winds, the next day there were trees fallen everywhere.

    the worst i've felt was when i was really young and i heard my first thunderstorm, it knocked the power out so it was in the dark aswell, i thought it was terrifying back then, now i just think storms are pretty cool

    Nothing really that bad here...
    Altho one really annoying thing i can think of is about a month ago my power went out while I was playing San Andreas, and I hadn't saved for a while.
    Then I'd turn the comp back on, and as soon as it finishes booting up the power would go out again.
    And it did that to me about 7 times in a row.


    Today it's raining hard and i think a thunderstorm is on it's way...in Toronto they said on teh raido that the power went out for a lot of businesses.

    We had a hurricane when I was little about 1962 uprooted trees on houses ,power lines down, broken windows . I 'v never experienced anything like it since but I still remember it and will never forget it . I still sit and listen with my youngest for the thunder then count till the lightning , its fun I still remember being a kid and frightened so long ago.


    Must admit I do enjoy my youngsters yelp and hugging "me" for safety .

    We went to a "maze in the maize" a few years ago, on a beautiful sunny day, so we were just in t-shirts and shorts.

    After about an hour, a big black cloud came over, and there was torrential rain.

    We got absolutely soaked to the skin, and couldn't shelter or anything, because we were in the middle of a fucking maze in a field... What's worse, the pathways just became muddy streams, so as we were rushing to desperately try and find our way out, we were sliding all over the place, falling over, getting even wetter, etc.

    It took about another 2 hours to eventually find our way out. Never again!
