Off Topic/Non-philatelic Disc. : Nova Scotia might have a bad weekend or more!!

We have the tail end of a hurricane coming which means we might lose power for a few days. There are a handful of people on this site from NS so maybe if you owe us some, yet to be sent invoices, you might want to send them now, before we lose internet service! Just a suggestion!

Edit: I know we've been "blasted" a few times, but I'm not really complaining. I live in a part of the world that has very few weather extremes to worry about. I can't even imagine living in areas in the Southern US or in the Caribbean. You people are heroes and should be treated as such. We go through the ends of hurricanes occasionally, some of you have to put up with this a few times every year. You have my respect!!!

It sounds like Hurricane Fiona will be unlashing her fury over the weekend.

My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you affected by this powerful storm.

Time to jump in the bathtub with your stamp collection. My wife actually DID hide in the bathtub when a hurricane came directly over us several years ago. Good Luk!!!

9:15 here! Lots of steady rain but no major wind yet - fingers crossed!!! About time to go to bed and read my book for a while - book 4 in the Lars kepler Joona Linna detective series. Hopefully I'll have time to read my nightly 100 pages!! Knocking on wood and have everything crossed that's possible!!

Talked to my sister in Middleton (Annapolis Valley - on the Bay of Fundy side) this afternoon. Fair bit of rain and high winds but no real damage other than the power out for six hours. Folks on the ocean side will be taking it on the chin.

re: Nova Scotia might have a bad weekend or more!!

We are good here with a power outage and branches down but moving to Halifax still major outages .
Some will be days without power. Truro hit hard Cape Breton devastated, with buildings destroyed , roads blocked with rocks.....
,,PEI, wharves destroyed, most trees down power lines etc. Will be weeks to restore power and repair washed out roads, and the east coast of Nfld...well Houses washed away and lives lost in Port aux Barque Worst hurricane storm to hit our area,

re: Nova Scotia might have a bad weekend or more!!

Just got my power back a few minutes ago. It wasn't too bad here but NS Power concentrated on the serious areas first. It could have been much worse!! I feel really bad for the people in Cape Breton, PEI and Newfoundland, they have a lot of work ahead of them!!

re: Nova Scotia might have a bad weekend or more!!

I feel very very lucky!! Parts of Cape Breton were almost destroyed and several houses in Western Newfoundland, around the Port aux Basques area, were washed into the sea with loss of life. I know there are many non believers in Climate Change out there, and I don't want to make this political, but these "once in a lifetime" storms are happening on a much more regular basis! Can you imagine how scary it would be to be in a house that is being washed out to sea? I count myself very lucky that I only lost power for three days and lost two nice spruce trees onto my front yard. How you people in the more at risk areas put up with this, and much more, on a regular basis is totally beyond me. STAY SAFE EVERYONE!! By the way there are still many people waiting to get power back including many who have individual electrical problems. I was just watching the house across the road from me get their power back!!
Any one who was holding back on an invoice because of the storm please feel free to send one if you wish. I just got an incredible US #2 from Carl. It was sort of nice to see it go for a reasonable amount. I know it means I must pay more but we have to bid on the really good stuff or sellers won't offer it here!!

Cheryl - Not everyone has power back even though in my area it's mostly fixing individual problems. I can still hear at least one generator on a side road near me. And it's hard to say how long it will take to fix Cape Breton, PEI and the west coast of Newfoundland!! Some parts of Halifax didn't even lose power. I hear from Tim McDonald on a regular basis and his apartment building didn't lose power at all. EVERYONE STAY SAFE!!
