Freight Trains

Canada has been plagued by a number of derailments in the past month. Another occured Wednesday. Many result from weather conditions. Speaking of which, we had a bad storm Thursday, a system which had spawned some devastating tornados in the States. When you live in the country the wind in the trees sounds like freight trains. I must say I felt rather jiggy with it until I saw all the downed branches the next morning. Yeah, then found the hydro (electricity for those not familiar with the north american term) was out. 30 hours later and still the case. I'm not very twiggy with that I'd have to say. No footy on the satellite box this morning. A dark day indeed, eclipse notwithstanding.
