Hurricane Season

Yes, even way out here in Newfoundland we are experiencing heavy rains as a result of Irma. (See previous post for the flooding fun as a result of Matthew last year and Igor in 2010.)

Over the past several days we have broken two records for rainfall. There has been flooding in downtown St. John's and elsewhere, accidents on the highway...seriously I'm so glad we bought a house on high ground (I still well remember Igor!). Trudeau is currently in St. John's so...that must be fun for him.

Today the rain finally let up...although no sign of the sun yet. Lots of mushrooms around. The weird frilly ones growing in a corner of our front rock garden area have all been shredded by the cats.
