The weekend saw a lot of wind here probably gale force. At least one large tree was ripped up and half  of it on the ground. Cold weather and snow was right behind it. Last night snow fell again and is still on the ground of this 600 meter above sea level community.
Some lighting and thunder claps proceeded a power outage over most the city of circa 8000 here. Causing intersections to be under person direction instead of street lights.
Calm and clearing at mid morning.
Editors note: powerful weather can put in play a series of events that can bring people into danger. Think ahead.
