from the "stormy weather" dept.

I'm back where it (the career, life) all began: Halifax. I arrived Friday. The day started in a cottage on the Saint John River in rural New Brunswick. After enjoying early morning peace and quiet, I said goodbye to Janet and Mark and hit the road.

The roads were quiet, the day beautiful. I was tempted to take some of the slower routes back to Halifax, but, in the end, I elected to stick with four-lane blacktop.

The party to mark the 20th anniversary of MITV/Global Maritimes loomed. And by the time I made it to the suburb of Hammonds Plains, I was already running behind -- a theme for this trip.

The bash was great. Dozens of people from the old MITV days showed up and we kept the party going until after 2 a.m. Not bad for a bunch of 40-somethings. The sad part is that such a get-together is unlikely to happen again. Unless a certain someone decides to move back to Halifax. And that isn't the long-shot you might think.

I've got to wade through the images and will post pictures soon.

Turning to weather -- the projection map says it all:

A quiet Sunday is about to be upset by the remnants of a tropical storm. While it won't be anywhere near hurricane strength, Hanna is likely to bring high winds and torrential rains. The rain has started and the winds are picking up as I write this at 9:45 am Sunday morning. We'll see what the day brings.

I'm also planning to spend several hours on hold with Air Canada... methinks I want to change my flight plans and hang here a tad longer. We'll see what they say...
