We arrived at the airport around 4pm yesterday (Sept 3) and rented a car and headed into Halifax. There were a lot of students around and people were hanging out before the storm hits. We went to “Niche” for dinner and to listen to some local Jazz – very good on both counts.
This morning the wind and rain woke me about 9:15 but nothing really happened until around 10:30. The pictures below were taken from our hotel in Dartmouth (across the river from Halifax) at about the peak of the storm. The power went out and came on again right away several times. They say it should all be over by about 2 pm. Other than tree branches there doesn’t seem to be much other damage as of yet.
Marg and I are enjoying a quiet day – reading and surfing the internet!
