There's probably thousands and thousands dead.

If global warming is real then how come I just felt this chill down my spine?

One might get the impression that the US is not a country that welcomes refugees.

What did I miss over the weekend? The storm turned north and went up the east coast? Yeah, I tried searching weather news, but I can only find the newest articles.

Yeah, I was surprised when I heard that it was battering Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. I guess it moved pretty quickly after it hit the Carolinas--and stayed pretty far off shore so that the Mid Atlantic and New England coast were not hardly affected other than waves and riptides.

It was running North at 50km/h or more as it headed for the Maritimes. Hit Halifax as a Cat 2. Put 400000 people out of power for while, I think?

and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.

Oh, just shut the fuck up.

This is the kind of crap you get when you let the Electoral College elect the President: A racist fuckwad. This is the second time in this decade when we've gotten a fuckwad in office because the Electoral College instead of the voters chose a president.

I woke up at 2:30 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. I posted that when I was only half-awake. Sorry. I was referring to the Shrub, 2000, and the Pustule now, of course. So, second time in two decades. Two presidents out of three. My point stands. I was just not awake enough to do arithmetic.

Yup almost half the province didn't have power. Ours went for 12 hours. It didn't seem that bad where I live but I couldn't go to work Monday due to roof damage on our building. There's a pretty crazy video circulating of a crane in Halifax toppling onto a building which was being constructed.
