What A Mess!

Anyone who had to get into town today for work certainly had their work cut out for them. I don't think it mattered what way you went there was traffic backups all over the place. I was going to go through Logy Bay but when I got to the end of Indian Meal Line the cars were lined up to there so I went Portugal Cove and the ride from there was great until I got to the start of the traffic lights. There were no lights working and people drive like idiots so they have no idea how a 4-way stop is supposed to work. You were taking you life in your hands just trying to get through an intersection.

To make matters worse when I got to work the building was closed because there was no power. Coming back home wasn't a problem though through Logy Bay so it looks like the initial traffic jams must have cleared up somewhat but there is still lights out and a tangle getting through the intersections. I would imagine there were a lot of people like me this morning too with the schools being closed trying to clamor to get someone to look after the kids or staying home so the traffic was likely a lot less than it could have been.

Hopefully everyone was safe yesterday and didn't have too much damage to their homes, it appears that we were lucky on the North East Avalon compared to come places on the Burin Peninsula and Bonivista area. They had major flooding and many people may lose their homes to water and wind damage. One thing for sure is that houses are built pretty good in Newfoundland compared to places on the mainland because I am sure that if they were faced with the same wind we were that they would most certainly lost their shingles if not their roofs. Judging from the fact that my house never had any issues considering the wind I would say many people have the same result as I do.

Good Luck with your cleanup.
