Our hurricane-ravaged city is NOT a Kodak moment!!!

As I stroll through our Dorian-defiled city, streets and parks chock-full of emergency workers, city employees, volunteers and scattered debris, amongst all of the people doing anything they can to help and others trying to salvage and repair what they can from the mess that's been made, there is you, having friends take your photo while you pose in front of fallen trees in our parks, or having your children stand as close as they can to the caution tape while you try to capture the perfect Insta-pic of them with the fallen crane in the background, or the guys that had their "bro" take that "sweet pic" of them while they stood in front of the vehicles that were crushed by they roof that flew off of the nearby building! None of these things are fun or cool, these are things that have caused people trouble that they now have to take care of. It's a blessing no one was seriously injured! Maybe put your camera away and see if there's anything you can do to help, rather than using this mess for photo content!

Trees: you CAN have too much of a good thing

A big thank you to the guys in khaki from Gagetown, NB who arrived Sunday afternoon to cut my fallen tree down to size, done in 10 minutes, and neatly stacked curbside all ready for the HRM chipper. BUT I couldn't help wondering what all this Hurricane Dorian clean-up is costing the taxpayer, much of which could be prevented if the municipality seriously rethought its tree-planting policy: On my walks over the weekend, I noticed that almost all of the fallen trees had very shallow roots; our urban environment of concrete and asphalt makes it impossible for trees to send down deep roots. My particular young tree had been planted right into the wires extending from my roof corner and right up against my underground water main. Did we learn nothing from Hurricane Juan? HRM must stop planting trees that grow to be 100 feet high: I suggest that HRM plant trees native to NS that will grow to be no more than 15-to-20 feet high. Everyone will still get their summer shade and carbon-cleaning, but they will no longer be a hazard to people's homes and overhead wires. There will also be a LOT fewer leaves in the fall clogging up our stormwater catch basins, which is a major cause of flooding.

Watching the evening news and anyone stupid enough to get close enough to the ocean re.:(Peggy's Cove) to get swept in deserve to drown. Can you say natural selection?

What the heck Bill, you call yourself a Hurricane? I haven't seen anything that anti-climactic since...well ever. You aren't fit to lick Jaun's boots.
