In 2003 we here in the Halifax area got a direct hit from Hurricane Juan. (click)
It was late September (thank God!) and we lost power for over a week.
The park we visited quite often (and still do), Point Pleasant Park which is in the
southern most part of the peninsular Halifax, was turned into a
a pile of rubble. Over 10,000 trees were knocked down by Juan's force.
One of those trees you can see below ...... at least the trunk part of that tree.
It was turned into this animal sculpture.
Seals are abundant in the waters off the park's shore.
Has your area ever been hit by a big storm that caused everything to be shut down
for a few days?
