We were very lucky last weekend around here. Hanna went up the Bay of Fundy and really socked it to areas of New Brunswick and western Nova Scotia, but here in my neighbourhood we were spared the worst of the rain and wind. There are several storms still on the weather horizon as it were. Ike slammed into Galveston Texas with abandon, but it will not make it up this far. We'll have to see what the rest of hurricane season has to offer; and in the meantime chop some more kindlin', stock up on dry goods and keep the batteries handy.
