Power is back, Trees Are Down, Chainsaws Are Going And We Have A High Surf.

It took almost 14 hours until the cutting crew from the DOT had removed all the trees which had fallen across the power line.
When we were checking out all around the island there were still low-hanging power lines a couple of spots.  The damage in the woods is substantial. One tree is still threatening to fall across the library building and a neighbour got 2 trees in his yard one stopping just short of his house, the other damaged his car.
We were headed to the beaches to observe the wild surf.
Even tough we didn’t have a hurricane yesterday, the surf had reached all across the parking lot at Herring Cove leaving tons of seaweed in his wake. 
The surf was still high enough to make a walk along the beach impossible. In fact it reached all the way up to the grass.
The Bay of Fundy was still covered in white caps and the mist of the crashing waves was obscuring a clear view of the coast across. 
Even though a storm like this is causing a lot of damage, it also gives a mighty impression of the unleashed power of nature.
As the sky was clearing up and the sun broke through the contrast of the deep blue waters and the white caps was stunning. It’s too bad those pictures don’t give you the crashing sound of the surf and the rolling gravel. It was downright ear-deafening. 


  1. Your big Atlantic ocean storms make our little Lake Huron storms look like popcorn.

  2. Nice that your power is back on, those storms sure can be vicious.
