Postcards Post Hurricane Bill

Hurricane Bill AftermathWe had a hurricane blow through here last week end. Bill reached Category 4 status at one point, but dropped down to a Category 1 by the time he hit Nova Scotia. Fortunately the eye never made landfall, so the winds were only "tropical storm" strength. A short slide show is after the jump.

The sun was out very quickly as the eye passed, as there was no rain on the back side. While the eye didn't make land fall, it did pass nearby while the tides were high, so there was a good storm surge. The winds stayed high as well, which made for some great shots down near the Peggy's Cove Light.


Edit: the old Flickr slideshow feature no longer works. Instead click here and you will be taken to a link to scroll through the shots one-by-one.
