Let me preface this post by saying that our little Province is not used to experiencing hurricanes and therefore we felt this was a BIG one.
We fully realize that it was nothing when compared to the devastation experienced by our friends in the Southern parts of the United States.
Yes, She hit – and she hit hard. Minimal rain (thankfully) but very high winds.
In my area we lost power from about 9:00AM on the morning of the storm – until about 5:00PM the following day……about 32 hours.
Folks here were worried about the hundreds of dollars worth of food they had in their deep freezers and the sounds of generators was heard everywhere.
My own personal damage was my gorgeous motorcycle thanks to my own STUPIDITY !!! You see, when it’s windy, the cover I have for the bike blows off. So knowing we were expecting very high winds, I secured the cover by tying it underneath the bike.
This, of course, just created a balloon effect once the wind got under it. Ain’t hindsight a wonderful thing !!
And down she went.
Again, thankfully, minimal damage. The cover is torn is several places so I will have to get a new one. And the right lever got bent but is still functional. The right lever, for my non-biker friends, is used to apply the front brake.
‘DA HULK came in handy though during the power outage. Being fully self-contained I scoff at power !! PFFFTTTTT !!
We (meaning me Mudder) cooked up a fine breakfast for my Brother, Wife, Mom and Me.
My Sister needed the services of my iron. Who knew I even had an iron !!! LOL Crank up the gennie and we can use the iron.
The following are a few pics I got off the Internet.
The next pic is my personal favourite – guy was actually building this shed to house his corvette.
The calm after the storm……
