Strong 100KM/H + wind gusts in southern Ontario
« on: November 24, 2014, 08:08 pm »
Very strong 100KM/H wind gusts right now in most of southern Ontario, especially near the lake.  Already got phone calls of people who got their satellite dish ripped off the roof!

If you have one or more dishes attached to your roof, be careful when walking outside as it could potentially go off the roof and fall to the ground.

I guess we will be busy over the next few days remounting or realigning dishes.  :o


Also, roofers will be busy as well with some roofs being totally blown off!

Spend a few minutes resetting my lnb it was loose and moved in the wind.

Also lost a couple of shingles and had a roofer fix it. No Charge as they were the original installers!!!

Losing just a few shingles is not so bad.  Much better than one of our customers who had an OTA and FTA satellite installation scheduled for this week be forced to postpone it as he has to get his roof re-shingled!  :o   Apparently, a large amount of shingles blew off his roof so it has to be redone from scratch.
