#PLENK2010Feeling Isolated

Sept 25 2010 Tried to go down to the Hagensborg store yesterday in the rain and got just to the top of the hill past Gross Rd.  There were earth movers clearing the road and digging out the ditches to direct the water back down the desired route to the river.  The power went off for only 45 minutes in the evening.  The rain stopped in the night. 
Sept 26 2010 Today we got as far as the old Tippie farmhouse.  Again the work crew was clearing the road of earth that had washed down the hill over the road.  The road traffic-controller told us that there were at least two feet of water in front of the Hagensborg store still, and it was too deep for our car.  Maybe the bus will get through tomorrow.
   On the other hand, I spent some time dealing with old email and that took me to Facebook, which connected me to relatives and their friends etc.  Filling up my email, again.
   It's a good thing we don't have to be airlifted out like the people of Kingcome Inlet because the airport is underwater.  We can thank el nina for this round of weather.  Is it climate cycles or climate warming?

  1. Hi
    Best wishes that you and your community get through this safely.

    I am in Clarenville Newfoundland and there are many communities in this area that have been very damaged by Hurricane Igor. The military is now here bringing fuel and supplies to coastal communities that are cut off by severe road washouts.
