CBC Radio One with the storm

I don't have too much to say about the storm, except that here in our sheltered area by a lake outside Halifax it's reasonably quiet. I hear the worst is yet to come.

But hey, while you have electricity (or a portable radio), why not tune in CBC Radio One? [90.5 FM in Halifax] It's pretty cool tonight; they're playing storm and wind-themed songs, and they have people calling in from all over the Maritimes - the large part being professionals doing their jobs at our ports and on the roads. I had been listening to News 95.7 but it's too jagged - they keep on cutting away to traffic and weather at the appropriate times, which gets ridiculous after 11pm when rush hour is but a distant memory. It's like they can't have any of their local reporters on the air without having to do the whole dog-and-pony show they do on weekday mornings and afternoons.

Oh, and if you're reading this and haven't set your clock back an hour yet, now's a good time. It's now November 4th, 1:42 am Atlantic Standard Time as I write this.

Your Still-Connected Pal,
~ Will
