Some folk treated Post Tropical Storm Noel

as a non-event. Depends where you were and what you saw. Ruth and I would not have wanted one km/hr more wind than Lunenburg got and Rod saw signs of damage at the tide line!

People at Queensland (near Halifax) awoke to this view of their former beach and highway. At Beach Meadows, Queens County, a trout fish farm was destroyed to the tune of $1 million dollars. Lobster fisherman were very concerned that their livelihood may have been affected. Peter Duffy of the Chronicle Herald reported the storm as "a bit of a letdown..." until iit started tearing siding from his home.

At West Berlin a resident said "This is worse than Juan for sure." That community found its wharves and shore buildings littered with seaweed. "We came down and all got discouraged and went home."
