It's raining, it's pouring ...

It's not just the rain that's bothersome today.  It's the hurling wind, that blows ducks sideways in the sky, that shakes my car as I drive over the MacDonald Bridge and that pushes the tidal waters too far up the shore.

Punch buggy -- no punch back !

It's the sort of day,  where you still get soaked under the "protective" overhang, hunched over, nozzle in hand, gassing up the car.

It's the sort of day, where boats float at record high levels, tugging at their moorings.

It's the sort of day, that when you head to a local spot, to marvel at the surging surf, you find  it already occupied by a Global TV van, and a sodden videographer. Clearly he's getting the shots he was looking for, as wind-driven detritus is hurled past him and crashing surf plasters his rain gear with shredded pieces of seaweed.

It's the sort of day to stay inside.


  1. great photos. The view through the rain... and your dog is priceless. I found your blog through a comment you made on another blog. I am visiting Nova Scotia next summer and want to find places to see, from thsoe who live there, not just the tourist mags.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Maggie.

    I'd love to take you for a coffee when you visit next year to welcome you to my adopted province.

  3. Sybil, I knew that weather would bring out the disaster tourists!

  4. I'm a disaster tourist -- and proud of it ! ;-)

  5. I enjoyed the weather. It was a lazy day inside ;)

  6. I like this special effect of the rain on the windows!

  7. Wow that's a lot of rain - but it seems you were lucky and the missed the snow that fell further south.
    I love your photos.

  8. Sounds like quite a storm you had! I love the pictures - they capture the drama and mood...

  9. Lovely post! You seem to make a post out of anything! I have to go to Times Square to do mine!
