So anyway I noticed Hurricane Earl went up to New England but didn't scare up as much damage as feared, but then went up to Nova Scotia and actually made a mess of things there. One person was killed, in fact, drowning in the water. I gotta say, Canadians need to take hurricanes seriously -- whenever a hurricane hits the USA, Americans freak out, but here in Canada we figure it won't be so bad when it hits because it will have blown itself out.
Earl ranks as our big exciting hurricane so far in 2010. That has really been the only news I have been following this Labour Day weekend -- or as they spell it in the USA, Labor Day.
