Just realized that this will be the last time I can write that date on my blog.... kinda scary, actually.
There was really no option when it came to picking photos for this site. Living in the maritime provinces in Canada we have been having some pretty severe weather, even for here. Although I have been one of those fortunate ones ( fingers crossed in case that statement jinxes me!) that did not lose power, many others in my family and friends were without heat or electricity for many days, not the least of which was Christmas Day!!
I am posting 3 of many photos I took and it will explain why the hydro wires were disconnected for any number of reasons...... the ice, the wind, the ice-laden branches that fell on them.
Many thanks to the NB Power workers, and those who came from neighboring cities, provinces and yes, even some from the Maine,USA, for taking their Christmas holidays and reconnecting my family members and friends with heat and light. In many cases, those on wells, were not able to get water.
