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 :)

That pumpkin in your header made me laugh out loud! We are still dealing with wind and rain but mild temperatures. Of course, we don't live in the same climate, and right now I'm glad of it. :-)

Well you weren't wrong about the snow, eh? And those ice crystals are something else :o) Stay warm and snug....

We had a freeze and a freeze warning but temps only dipped to low thirties the second night.

Marcy hustled to save all she could in the garden and even covered what was left with sheets.

Too cold for me where you are!

I have to say I am happy it is you shoveling and not me!

Oh my God what a weather you had, while we were enjoying summertimes. Amazing difference, but I am sure our time will come too. Glad you still have electricity en can be warm and cosy at home. Wish you a bit warmer way to start the winter!

Storms like these are never pleasant so when the sun cleans up it will be very pleasant. We had this in early September.

Wow, what a harsh surprise, Lilly. Good to hear that you fared well. It seems that we could expect quite nice first half of November, no snow expectations... but we'll see.

The ice pellet looks like a flower, beautiful if not so damaging.

By the way, I haven't managed to leave any comment lately but I want to tell you that I liked those several headers I noticed! :)

oh goodness.....a surprise white party. The pumpkin in the header is a doozie.....love it. We haven't had snow but, that's not to say that we won't by the weekend. Autumn was short lived but well used here. Happy, better be ready because it's already upon us, eh? xoxo Oma Linda
