    Looks like you will have a few decent days. Supposed to be nice here (NB) until late Wednesday with temperatures as high as 28°C. Not ideal for riding but I can stand it! Might head down to the Fundy coast and see what it is like there.

    Are you required to self-isolate upon return to NL? Does that mean you can't participate in a solitary activity like MC riding?

    I do have to self isolate for 2 weeks but they just announced I can isolate for 5 days, get tested and if it's negative I'm out.

    I can go out and ride, I'm not allowed into any public spaces.

    It appears that forum activity is inversely proportional to the amount of long weekend sunshine and warmth. Bonus Labour Day weekend for sure!!
    Pretty good in New Brunswick as well but I have been doing yardwork rather than riding. Four cubic yards of topsoil wheelbarrowed from the driveway to the back yard and spread, limed and seeded.
    Tomorrow is supposed to be hot (28 °C) so I hope to get out on the bike for a couple of hours...

    I'm going to play with my shovel, building a new fence.

    So, does anyone want to guess what the REAL track will be? A couple of days ago, it was going to stay out in the Atlantic and now looks like a direct hit on Nova Scotia. A few degrees either way could have it coming up the Bay of Fundy for a New Brunswick hit or setting its sights on Newfoundland. Forecast to still be at hurricane strength when it makes landfall.
    Stay tuned...

    Looks like we'll probably get it.

    Yep. Seems to have shifted to the west. (At least at this point.) Newfoundland is right in the crosshairs but looks like tropical storm force rather than hurricane force when it makes landfall.
    This could change a number of times between now and Wednesday. Looks like New Brunswick may be spared anything more than a little rain and some gusty winds.

    We prepped a few things for last night's rain but forgot to plug in the sump pump. There are a few puddles in the basement today.

    Looks like you guys got some heavy rain in the south for sure. Just checked the weather for Clarenville and it's 10C with a frost warning. Perfect moose hunting weather:(

    Edit: We need some of your rain... Been very smoky here in the Okanagan for seven days now. You can look directly at the sun to find it . Being outside unmasked is equivalent to smoking 40 cigarettes a day. And the Weather folks say if all the particulate matter fell at once the ash here would be a meter and a half deep.

    The smoke has gotten all the way here, you can see the colour looking at the horizon. Pretty wild to influence so far. I can only imagine what it's like in San Francisco.

    Hurricane Teddy - Looks like the initial hit will be Nova Scotia Eastern Shore from Halifax up to and including Cape Breton. Close to hurricane strength at landfall.
    Expect it to be significantly weakened by the time it hits the western half of Newfoundland. Port aux Basques to Corner Brook will get a pretty good blow, I think.
    Wouldn't want to be on the ferry (probably not running anyway). Schedule changes are posted on Marine Atlantic website.

    Previous pics were uploaded to RtR. This is a link so I don't know if it will disappear or change when the site is updated. Edit: This graphic keeps changing as the weather website keeps updating.

    Now seeing Teddy as a direct hit on Nova Scotia from west of Halifax to and including Cape Breton as well as PEI. Looks like only the western part of Newfoundland will be impacted along with a bit of Labrador.

    Talking the possibility of 100' waves off Nova Scotia.
