Here We Go
Well, it's started. I got up at 4am and it was barely blowing and not yet raining so I went back to bed. At 6:30 am (ADT) it had been raining lightly. By 8am the rain and wind started and it hasn't let up (it's not yet 10). High tide isn't for another hour but already the storm surge is bringing the water up higher than the normal high tide for this time of year (when we get our highest). So, it will be interesting to see where the water level is in an hour. The radio report said Halifax can expect the worst of the storm between 2 and 3pm which means we will get it between 1 and 2. Thankfully that is after high tide.

Anyway, here are some photos from yesterday and today:

Across the harbour yesterday- neighbour's boat high and dry. This low tide is WELL below normal.

Same boat, well lashed at 3 spots.

Tide wasn't even at it's lowest at this point. My wharf had a metre of mud past the end of it.

The sky to the NW yesterday.

To the north today. This tree is well protected but it's blowing pretty good.

Normal high tide on my wharf.

Storm surge tide level about an hour before high tide.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
