    Default Waiting for Bill .....

    Here we sit up Nor' East here waiting to see what Hurricane Bill brings on Sarurday night. It looks like out my window will be ground zero ! Hard to say until the last minute. Doesn't look like it will be as bad as Katrina or Andrew, but Juan in 2003 was a real suprise when it was upgraded at the last minute.

    Hurricane Juan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Juan blew our office off it's foundation in '03 !! Our AutoPort is right beside the Atlantic Ocean because we have a railhead AND a sea terminal !

    Film at eleven !!

    Thanks a bunch for the thoughts ya'll !

    Here's the latest:

    As of 1400 Hrs Atlantic Time, 22 August, 2009:

    Weather Forecast: Halifax, Nova Scotia - The Weather Network

    Now mind you that link is for our current weather, so if your reading this post in the archieves 30 years from now, say in 2040, you won't get the full appreciation of TODAYS events, which is Hurricane Bill .... Man my spelling sucks !! Anyway ...

    Looks like the eye wall will pass by us, slightly, in the Atlantic, but then vere in again .... always hard to make that call ... but if your looking at that above link today, you'll see the warnings gallore !!! We're looking at tons of rain and wind !

    For those who have played the Hurricane game, you know what I've done. I to have played the hurricane game. We have lots of propane for the BBQ. gas for the rigs. Lots of cash (well, you know what I mean ... I drive a car hauler, I don't own the outfit !!) in case the ABM network crashes, I have lots of food and water. We have lots of preserves all year regardless. The hatches are battened down, and the backyard has been put away. Windows are covered etc etc. I also have a generator !

    Here's an interesting link from the Great White North:

    Is your family prepared?

    Anyway, wave heights down the street are expected to top 20 feet, and that DOESN'T include the storm surge .... and wind is expected to be that of a Cat 1 or 2 storm TO START !!

    So, speaking of crazy ... my Bro down the street is a real surfer dude ! He's pretty pumped about this storm ! Did you know that outside of Hawaii and California, we have some of the best surf in the world ?

    Surfing Nova Scotia - Lawrencetown Surf - Surfing Halifax - Halifax Surf - Surf Nova Scotia - Surf Shops Nova Scotia - Surfing Cape Breton - Surf Shop Canada

    While I'm hiding in the basement, he and his dudes are going to hit the waves !!! Unreal !!

    Anyway, I'm getting ready to power everything down ... so we'll talk at ya'll later.
