So today I got up and at around 11am decided it was time to pack up and head out for the day. Somebody has to take the pictures right?
I started off at Quidi Vidi, just to see what was up and I’ll tell you what was up: the water. It wasn’t really windy in St. John’s just yet, but it had been raining since sometime the evening before. Despite warnings from the RNC (our local police), there were a lot of sightseers every where I went. Thankfully, from what I could see, most were keeping a safe distance. From there I swung by St. Pat’s Ballpark to discover the entire outfield was now a swimming pool. Then I made my way downtown to see what people were doing to keep dry… then the wind hit.
Thanks to all the people who have commented at the bottom of this post, via twitter and also through e-mail. It’s great to know that the 10 hours or so I spent getting wet yesterday was worth it. In the end, this post was viewed over 200,000 unique hits in two days and over a million pageviews. Thanks!
