Hurricane Earl passing through...

This picture was posted this afternoon on the Halifax Herald online, showing some downed trees in Halifax.

Well, it's been quite a week. We've had record temperatures here all week in the Halifax area peaking at 38 C (100.4 F) and well into the 40's with the humidex. Thank goodness for the air conditioning at work, but at home, the temperature peaked at +33 C inside my house! Not nice to sleep in at all! :( We finally got an a/c unit installed yesterday were able to cool the house down, but now the power has been going on and off with Hurricane Earl passing through. That means no a/c or fans! Hopefully the power is on to stay now, but we'll see. The last time we had a hurricane pass through, they was a lot of devastation and a lot of homes were without power for days or even weeks. You don't realize how much you rely on it until it's gone!  Stay safe, everyone!

My girls also started school on Thursday. Natalia started grade 2 and Alexandria started grade 3. They're two years apart in age, but Alexandria missed the birthday deadline for enrollment so she had to wait an extra year to start school. Then, they changed the birthday deadline, so Natalia got to go a year earlier. Seems weird that they're only a year apart in school. But, they're both doing really well. I'll post a pic of them soon.

Well, the wind is still really howling and I'm sure we're going to lose power again, so I'd better finish up with my post.  I'll keep ya updated soon.

Thanks for stoppin' by!
