Erosion 1

Erosion works non-stop on Prince Edward Island.

 

These photos were from the 'man taking his pants off' day and I took a photo very much like the top one on a beach I visited two weeks ago.  I will show it soon.

 

Addendum: written 5:20adt on Monday afternoon.

 

Total coincidence that I featured clouds the last few days and am now starting a series on erosion.

 

We have just been victims of Hurricane Dorian on Saturday and Sunday. There is plenty of clean up here in the east but western PEI got more damage as they had more rain which loosened the soil and root systems more resulting in whole trees being uprooted. Here in the drier east, trees broke instead. I lost one tree and had lots of big limbs broken. Firewood for someone again.

 

I lost electricity for 26 hours and my son still has none, now about 49 hours.  I had electricity but no internet until today. My son has an industrial sized generator so I went to his house yesterday for coffee and dinner. All is well.

A la télévision j'ai vu les dégâts que l'ouragan a fait C'est catastrophique. Des gens ont tout perdu.
Mary MacADNski: In Bermuda the category 5 devastation was almost total. Here the hurricane was category 1 but the winds were higher than the usual category 1.

Ancient Ethnic Architecture...
Mary MacADNski: A shame it is crumbling so rapidly.
Good to know you are all safe Mary. I hope the damage isn't too great.
Mary MacADNski: Lots of very big damage in various parts of the Maritimes. A crane crumbled over a building under construction in Halifax. The area is still evacuated until the crane is deconstructed.
Good Heavens, Mary. For some reason I hadn't noticed that Dorian's effects had moved so far north already. I'm glad you and your family are alright. Though I'm sorry about your tree... and all the cleanup that will be necessary.
Very good music!
Mary MacADNski: I have been working on a series about this tree the last few years. I knew it would go sometime.

Best of luck with clearing up after Dorian. Pity about your tree..
Mary MacADNski: A special tree, the one I am doing a stained glass series on and a photographic series one day too.

I remember you showing cliffs like this before. It looks almost as if, sandwiched between layers of rock, there is a brick wall built my ancients.
Mary MacADNski: Ray saw what you see too. It will be gone now probably with the recent hurricane. It caused great tidal surges.
I think I remarked to you that I thought Dorian was coming your way, it must have been a frightening experience and I'm glad things didn't turn out too bad for you in the end. The more you show this erosian the more it reminds me of what is happening on oart of our east coast in Norfolk and Suffolk.
Mary MacADNski: I slept pretty well considering but heard big cracks throughout the night. I know know for sure what those big cracks were now - trees and limbs.
I was wondering how you had been on PEI. Pleased to know you are OK.
Mary MacADNski: It is a disaster in some areas. The part of the National Park in Cavendish lost 80% of it's trees.
Glad you made it through the storm okay... Am I missing something about the pants-less man?
Mary MacADNski: Go back young man...a good story.
I was hoping Dorian would go out to sea before it reached the Maritimes, Mary. Guess the damage could have been a lot worse but it still wrecked havoc, nevertheless. Glad to hear all is well with you and your family now.
Mary MacADNski: Our local school was one of three still not opened yesterday for lack of electricity. Some in the west of the province won't have power till into the weekend. So many trees uprooted in the west! Eighty percent of the trees in the Cavendish part of the Nat. Park.
