Good luck with the storm that is headed your way.
I drove home from our cottage in the neighboring province of New Brunswick this evening. Hurricane Ike was supposed to be heading up the Bay of Fundy into NB around midnight so I expected only a little rain near the end of the 4 hour drive.
However as I approached Halifax from the east the driving conditions got steadily worse. I had to slow from 110 to 70 KPH due to a strong crosswind and driving rain, poor visibility and hydroplaning conditions.
On arrival home I checked the National Hurricane Center and found the hurricane has swerved east and will pass about 40 miles north of us instead of over a hundred miles away. Winds are gusting strongly at present, but it will be 3-4 hours until the storm reaches its closest point to us. Could be an interesting night!
The latest update from the weather network has Ike coming ashore in Yarmouth and coming right up the Annapolis Valley where Jason and my family live. If it does this will be hurricane number 2 for my family.
BE safe there chuck. It is blowing like crazy here in Halifax. Only 9 minutes until I end my shift for the day.
Other than a few tree limbs on the road there seems to have been no damage from Hurricane Kyle in my neighborhood. It didn't follow the last track predicted by the U.S. National Hurricane Center but passed further west across the Bay of Fundy.
We didnt get hit much. Some high winds, rain, and limbs on the road. Only a small part of the valley here without power.
All we got was alot aof rain
