The beautiful sky at sunset last evening was surely the calm before the storm. Bill has brought with him Cat 1 force winds to some parts of the province, along with a deluge of rain. Here, in the Annapolis Valley, we’ve had some haughty gusts that have sent loose objects sailing, and steady rain, but so far, have managed to maintain power and have been treated fairly well. About 18,000 are without power as I write this, mostly on the eastern or Halifax side of the province.
Obviously, Bill doesn’t care for tomatoes, the beggar! Isn’t that mean? I’m hoping to salvage some of the fruit, but I know that some of the larger branches of the plants are bent and will likely need to be trimmed off. Hopefully, I can salvage enough to have a taste!
Wind and rain do make for some interesting shots — I was lucky enough to capture this raindrop as it hit a soil-covered chair. :) If we maintain power, I’ll post another update later on. Hang on to your britches!
