Tropical Storm Arthur

Well we certainly brought June in with a bang, actually I guess we let May out with a bang. Arthur was our first tropical storm and it was really not much different from the storms we had on the west coast of British Columbia, it was just a heck of a lot warmer.

We spent the night in the third floor bedroom, huddled together wondering if the roof was going to stay on or if the whole third floor was going to go. We did not get any sleep at all, most of the time we were too busy watching the lightning. What an awesome show we had. Sometimes the thunder and the lightning happened at the same time, it was so very close.

Below are some pictures of the aftermath of the Arthur in our yard and the street outside our yard.

Broken branches from the almond tree beside the steps

Flooded garden and yard

Walkway at the bottom of the stairs

The road heading towards the village

The road heading towards the airstrip
We were a little concerned about the airstrip, but things got back to normal very quickly once the winds slowed down a little.
