Well, I have not posted in quite some time, having been busy with visitors, hay-making, canning, blanching and the list goes on...I LOVE having visitors BUT when IGOR visited yesterday and the day before in all his fury, I wish he had stayed away. While we did not have any major damage around our home, many small towns/communities are devastated with houses and sheds underwater, property that people have worked so hard to beautify has been torn to shreds. Actually, as I write this, we are stranded from the Main Highway by our roads being washed out and while workers are busy as many hours as they can to fix the problems, there is still no way out until possibly tomorrow...Let's hope no one becomes seriously ill at this time.

I am posting these pictures to give you an idea of what it looks like around some towns that are a stones throw away from me. I am not sure which ones to post... there are so many desperate looking shots. So sad....


  1. Anne, so glad that you are alright. I thought about you everytime NTV mentioned St. Lawrence, Lawn and the Burin, as I know you are in that area.

    I know you are normally busy this time of year, so not surprised I haven't seen any new posts.

    Take care and post when you can!

  2. Dear Anne,
    So thankful you are safe! So much destruction and hardship on people everywhere after these storms is hard to see. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Will anxiously await your next post!

  3. Hi Anne,
    Glad to hear you are safe. I have been watching the news coverage and it is horrible. My heart goes out to the communities and families that will have to re-build.

  4. Thanks, Ladies...this is the worst that anyone has ever seen in our area...We are still stranded and it may be later than the weekend before the highway is fixed... I think of the People who are running short on food; must be awful...We can only hope and pray right now...
