It was one year ago today that “The Storm” hit Ignace. Straight line winds which topped 140 km per hour (almost 90 mph) ripped through our town. Our base was hit hard with two aircraft damaged. The Outpost at Irene Lake on the point also suffered from downed trees.

These are some pictures of that storm.

We went in to the camp in the winter to burn the tops.

Even tho’ most of the mess is cleaned up, We still have much to do and will be working on the yard for some time yet.
