First week of December

Since my previous post, PEI has been plagued by more stormy weather with high winds and snow. As a result, the island experienced rolling power outages for as much as 12,000 people. We ourselves were without power for much of 2 days, but others were far more unfortunate having to spend an entire week without power…

At moments like these it’s hard not to wonder how such things can happen. This is just the start of winter after all, and although we did get some snow by no means was this severe weather. In Newfoundland we had winter power outages too but only when the weather was really bad. The difference between the two situations, as far as I’ve been able to tell, is that trees grow much taller here than they do in Newfoundland, and they grow right alongside the power lines, sometimes even through the power lines, taking them down when branches are weighed down by wet snow.

With weather like this I did not spend much time outside, and on the few moments I did I managed to catch a cold. I’m sure I’ll feel better soon, and as long as the power stays on I can’t wait for more winter!
