earl part deux

So, it turns out that Earl really liked me. But only movita and 2.0. By day’s end, over 200, 000 people in Nova Scotia were without power. Earl entered the province as a Category 1 Hurricane, ate way too much and then slowed his pace down (making him a tropical storm). This was after telling us he was going to head toward New Brunswick, and then at the last-minute deciding that Halifax was way more fun. Winds were clocked at about 110 km per hour. One death reported. Lots of trees down. Lots, and lots of clean-up to do.

But we didn’t lose power. We sat in the livingroom watching the massive tree in our front yard tickling the picture window and threatening to come right through. Watched dvds and flipped through library books. Our neighbour lost part of one of his trees, which miraculously fell next to our pretty white picket fence instead of on it. We’ve got some damage in the garden, but it could have been much worse.

And guess what, Haggy? Our tomatoes all survived.

    Phew! Good job you are so awesome that even a hurricane noticed! Glad you are well and living on to cook more treats. Priorities? I’ve got it taped ; )

      Don’t you worry. A little hurricane can’t wreck our appetites… we’re Maritimers!

      Yah. And we didn’t even use the garbage bags you suggested. (Oh, thanks for that suggestion by the way. We’ve been laughing about it for four days straight.)
