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.

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

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.....

My god the weather has been perfect the last few weekends. Amazing sun, amazing colors.

In before complaints about the snow.

Although I will admit, I missed having some sun last year to enjoy the leaves changing. Felt like it all happened during the cold and snow in early october and when it got nice again the trees were bare.

It was a great weekend to clean up the yard prior to the inevitable snowpocalypse.

Its hard to complain about 20 degrees and clear blue sunny skies....but we will find a way!

I'm probably in the minority as it seems most Calgarians want 25+ every day, but I actually really liked this summer. Nice warm sunny weather quite frequently but with enough cool, rainy days to not get stuck in that blah hot feeling when it goes on to long.

The best part was jut taking in the city scape. Too many summers we get like 3 weeks of rain in spring making the city bud nicely and then the rain goes away and everything starts to look more stale and crisp by August.

This was just beautiful all summer, and now we've had an incredible September as well, as the leaves start to change.
