Tropical Storm Earl


It's here and on it's way out now. Earl was a category 1 hurricane when it arrived but is now a tropical storm. Lots of wind and rain. Trees down, powerlines down. So far we have been really lucky and have not lost our electricity. Thousands across the province are without. View through my dining room window. Love the abstract image, wind, rain on window and blowing trees:) It has slowed down quite a bit here in Halifax and by suppertime, the sun should be out! In fact it loks brighter here now:) This is my car parked on the road. I was trying to find a spot where it might be free from falling trees:) Would love to try to get out later when things calm down for some surf pictures but at this point all the roads to great vantage points are closed.

Looks wild and nasty! Glad you didn't lose power.

Fascinating and beautiful perspective Shelagh! It went quite well, considering.

Ooooh! Hope you are riding things out without much trouble! I've survived tornadoes and earthquakes but never experienced a hurricane. Well the most beautiful things usually come to the surface after a storm so I hope the next week is full of beauty and calm for you!

Thank you for your kind visit. Every day I am feeling better and more like myself. My son had his first college class this morning and crossing that threshold I think helped his situation some. Will keep everyone posted, but I do so appreciate your kind words!
