You missed the event of the year, Alan. Tell Toronto we need some help...send Labatts Blue Lite.

Alan -

If you need Blue Lite you do need help.

Speaking of needing help...

I hope the Liberals "took their vitamins and said their prayers", 'cause last nights storm is gonna look like a breeze compared to what will happen to the Grits....I predict 4 seats for Liberals...a step forward but a devastating storm, nonetheless.

Here it is...

Ronnie, a seat in Summerside, Richard Brown and Barry Ling.

Anybody else bold enough to predict...?

Jean Tingley in Oyster Bed - Park Corner but I understand Ken Bingham for the NDP did a great job campaigning, too.

My numbers were right on...admittidly, my locations were off a bit, but it was not difficult, really. Robichauld was an excellent cantidate. Now, Ghiz needs to get rid of the "yell" he uses in his speeches when he tries to imitate his dad. I would now say Ghiz will form the next govt, as I have said earlier.

My Sunday NFL picks can be had - for a price.

Mike in Halifax has arisen from the debris with another good report on Juan in my favorite old home town. This is a great description:<blockquote class="smalltext">We walked down toward the harbour. Some commercial damage (windows broken, signs down, siding torn off). The surge had brought all kinds of seaweed, mussels, starfish, etc. up a hundred feet from the harbour. Part of the track bed for the rail line running along the harbour was washed out, with a few ties missing. Giant pieces of wood and boulders were on the railroad tracks. [I wish my digital was working.] Wharves had been smashed, with pieces floating in the harbour. Train cars had been washed into the harbour. Boats washed up on shore.</blockquote>

All this reminds me of the tail of a hurricane, Gustaf, that hit PEI fall 2002 which knocked down a 80 year old birch, two foot thick at the base of the trunk, on my front lawn with a thundering explosion in the middle of the night. Here is someone else's description:<blockquote class="smalltext"> We landed in the middle of the first Hurricane I ever remember and were one of the last to make it over the bridge (140 km winds). School was cancelled, trees were all over the place, power was out-the only generator in Kensington is at the Tim Hortons, but don't panic, it was working fine. All of the corn (about an acre) in my Dad's garden was knocked down, and we aren't allowed to eat anything else until we leave.</blockquote>
