Halifax (updated)

Multiple choice question: what can be deduced from the three photos that comprise my last three blog posts?

a) Ronniecat is apparently on the road more these days than a long-haul trucker.

b) Ronniecat is exhausted.

c) Damn, that's some foul weather they've been having.

d) All of the above.

And the answer is, of course, d) All of the above.

The Blackberry's camera tends to take relatively dark photos, but trust me, 95% of the darkness in these pictures is reflective of the actual weather conditions. We've gone through two weeks of continuous dark days under black clouds that sometimes did, sometimes didn't, open up in sheets of rain and thunderstorms. Some days it was as dark as 9 pm at noon.

Today it's sunny... maybe the string of bits and pieces of decaying tropical storms that led to the lousy weather has finally played itself out. As for me, there's a bit more travel in my future (the trip to the Annapolis Valley and Yarmouth was pleasure and there are photos coming; Miramichi was business; Halifax, both [a CI Program adjustment]) but for now I can't wait to go to work next week so I can rest!

I actually like the darkness of your last three photos: they capture a sense of the moment that a brighter snap-shot-ish tone would not afford.

Looking forward to more!

Yes, I just wrote the story about all the farmers wishing the weather would break so they could stop watching their vegetables rot and maybe even cut some hay. Whereupon the weather promptly brightened so the story would look stupid in the paper.

You're welcome.
