I could be wrong but I think Juan in 2003? Might have been the last major to go through Nova Scotia.

There's been a few since, in varying degrees of strength...

2007 - Noel - a few days after taking possession of the house. Lost a bunch of siding, shingles and a few trees.

2008 - Kyle

2014 - Arthur

Lots without power here, ours flickered but never really lost it.

Had a tree fall in the front yard, but nothing really serious.

Pretty much... I bought a fancy new phone but there have been some issues getting it working with the security software so I've had a loaner from IT for the last few days, and it's basically a potato. Thankfully that long nightmare appears to be over.

Most expensive/damaging events in canada. Sorry, maritimes doesn’t even come close as far as total damage but the news will make you believe the sky is falling out there.

If your opinion is that Westerners complain the most, they have a right to.

Isn't that because there isn't much in the maritimes that's particularly expensive to replace?

Thank you, not only did I lose part of a tree, there was a longer than usual line at Tim Hortons this morning. I'm glad you understand my plight.

Someone on my FB posted a video of a Tim's line up post storm on the east coast. It was like a 4 block car line up along with a foot line up wrapped around the building. "Longer than usual" haha. That's some kind of patience for some bad donuts and coffee.

George St. Tim Hortons in Sydney was like that this morning (may have been that one, was there a sign for the casino?)

The double drive thru location by my house was backed up onto the road, and the lineup inside was out the door.

I opted for my Keurig. Not waiting in that foolishness. My wife settled for me making her tea (that does require #ThoughtsAndPrayers)

What was the insured damage from your number 11? $300 million?

AC/DC was in the Bahamas when the Young boys were writing songs for Back in Black. They had serious writer's block so one night when a hurricane was coming they basically just took the weather forecast, looked out the window and started writing.....

I'm a rolling thunder, a pouring rain
I'm comin' on like a hurricane
My lightning's flashing across the sky
You're only young but you're gonna die
And that was some minor hurricane.
