the calm before the storm

As most of you know Hurricane Irene is barreling up the eastern seaboard of the United States and is going to pass over most of New Brunswick and southern Quebec.  These two provinces have already had a lot of rain this month and the rivers are very full.  The St. John River flows from northern Maine and down from northern N.B. through Fredericton and out the mouth at Saint John into the Bay of Fundy ~ 418 miles.  With all that rain flowing into all the brooks, streams and rivers that flow into the St. John River there's going to be a deluge all at once.  We may get over 100 mm of rain.  Not good.  My thoughts and prayers are wlth all who will be affected by this storm. 

But, for today I had to go out and take a few photos of the beautiful foggy morning that broke into a glorious hot and sunny day ~ the calm before the storm.





This could be frost but it's not - yet!







Tonight there is an outdoor worship concert we are attending.  We're praying the weather
will stay nice until 10:00 and after all the equipment is taken down.
Some of you may know of these worship leaders: Tim Milner from N.S.
Richard Paul from Fredericton, Paul Coleman from Australia (Newsboys!!),
and Dan Bremnes from Kelowna, B.C.
It's going to be an awesome time!
Last year there was over a thousand people at the concert.  It is held
in a green field near a small strip mall in the little community of Keswick, outside of Fredericton.


This is a part of the large crowd from last year.

I hope your weekend is happy and that if you're in the line of Irene that you stay safe.

Blessings to you!

Hugs,
Pamela

  4. Hello Pamela
    Awesome photos! The spider web looks like tiny silver beads, a Christmas decoration on the tree since it's so sparkly looking.

  9. Pamela, I hope you stay safe this weekend during the awful weather situation. I was wishing for a little rain which is so badly needed but none yet. Your photos are wonderful! That really does look like frost on the tree, very nice. The one with the bird on the post looks like it should be framed. Take care...

  11. Hope things are quiet over in NB! We don't have anything yet - a bit of rain but no wind. Roger and I put all the lawn furniture and flower pots in the garage just in case. Stay warm and dry!
