While our neighbours in Kanata North and West Carleton are dealing with a widespread power outage tonight, so far Stittsville has been spared.

Heavy winds have toppled fences and sent bbq covers and blue bins flying everywhere. The biggest damage we’ve heard about so far is to the Mattress Mart sign in Kanata South. Yikes! Hope there was something there to, um, cushion the landing.

The West Ottawa Soccer Club cancelled all of this evening’s practices at the domes on Richardson Side Road as a precaution due to heavy winds.
