Goodbye Earl

Saturday, Hurricane Earl blew by. We weren't directly in his path, but we felt some pretty strong winds. Luckily, we didn't have any damage, but when we went walking around the neighbourhood afterwards, we saw plenty of trees down on houses and lots of police tape blocking off power lines that were trailing on the street. At one point, we saw city buses being rerouted on our small residential street. The cause? Huge tree limb across the main road at the end of our street.

The boys were intrigued by the wind, but really just wanted their TV back. They kept asking to turn the lights on, too. We were without power for 32 hours. They did love the tray of candles we set up in the bathroom for bathtime Saturday night. Sponge baths with water warmed on the BBQ.
