It was uneventful here, only lost power for about 3 seconds, enough to make our computers and cable tv reboot  ;)

Lots of rain and wind, downed limbs and such.  People in some towns lost power for a day or so.  The eye of the storm went further west of us than first predicted, tracking up New York State and towards Vermont, one of the quickest hurricane/tropical storm events in memory.

Good to see you and Anne made out okay.. we've seen on TV not everyone was so lucky..

Cliff, I don't get home until Friday and will be checking on everyone then.  My sister in Connecticut has been without power and water since Saturday.

Irene is here! But she arrives like all other low pressure systems of this time of the year:

No hurricanes here! But cool and windy (11C high) and frost warning again tonight, guess we can just get used to that from now on! Warmer days coming again though--they say 28 by Thurs! If its true, it will be one of our 3 or 4 warmest days of the year....

After a couple days of clear, dry, breezy not-too-hot days, it's back to being hot and humid, 86 F (30 C) with high humidity. Taking a quick trip around the garden with my camera, my feet and legs are bitten up badly from a fresh crop of tiny, fast moving, ravenous mosquitoes, no doubt a result of so much rain in last week's hurricane/tropic storm event and prior rain all season. Still waiting for a confirmed cooling trend, and a day below 70 F (21 C).

I am always waiting for the above-70F-days!

Trond, I'm SOOOO ready for some Norway-like temperature; I'm built for a cool climate and suffer through the long hot summers.  When it's humid and hot (which also = buggy) I lose any motivation to work in the garden.

Frost on the roofs this morning...  :o :o
But a beautiful day, now that it has finally warmed up.

Well, how's this for crazy weather?  The downtown was closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic today due to high winds.  There were many windows in at least one office tower broken from debris flying around.  An area of several blocks around the building where I work is still closed to access.  Many trees knocked down in various parts of the city.  Chinooks aren't usually quite this violent.
Should be interesting getting to work tomorrow... assuming the building is open then.

Lori, hope you make out ok today - talked to my sister in Calgary and got the update on her end of town, what a "breeze" you had! Wind here too, but not nearly as much when it reached us.
