20170903-04 Remnants of Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey became a Post Tropical Cyclone  which died out as a Remnant Low over our area over the Labour Day Weekend.  Here are some of the effects that Harvey had on our neck of the woods:

Highway 529 was flooded for a couple of days ….

Threatening skies between rainshowers …

Low clouds, reflected, after a rainshower in calm conditions …

White Water Lilies had their leaf and flower stems stretched as the water levels rose.

Lots of drops ….

Fruits are wet …

Hydrangea in subdued back-light.

Hollyhocks collecting raindrops …

Great Blue Heron is grabbing a meal between showers ….

Got it!

“When will it ever dry out?”

“This rain never seems to stop.”

A good time to do some preening for the photographer.

Meanwhile life goes on as this unidentified chrysalis matures.

This Goldenrod Crab Spider has lost its camouflage on this Brown Eyed Susan

Water doesn’t seem to bother this Paper Wasps’ domicile….

A moment of dry sunshine brings out the pollinators …

A final reminder that Harvey has visited North America.

This Tuesday, Sept 4th, Pointe au Baril price is about 25 cents/liter higher than normal.  Possibly a combination of Labour Day Weekend  and Post Harvey pricing strategy.

As (Climate Scientist (?)), Bob Dylan said, “The Times They Are A-changin‘”

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’
