Halloween Nor' Easter
Intense nor'easter brings snow, rain, freezing rain, ice pellets and high winds to Atlantic Canada. The powerful, large-scale storm affected all Atlantic Canada. Some areas received 25-35 cm overnight, in the northern part of the province. In the southern part of the province, snow changed to freezing rain and ice pellets. Winds gusted up to 90 km.
A storm of this magnitude brought many trees down, with their fall leaves heavily hanging and disrupted power to thousands of homes throughout the province. We fared well, did not lose our power and are left with a lot of frozen ice chunks out on the road - now the best part - the temps are supposed to rise and most or all of this will melt - What a totally unexpected surprise from Mother Nature and what a way to end October and start November, eh.
( I think raking leaves is over till the spring.)
Yep, its definitely NEW SHOVEL TIME :)
