About 11PM last night, I posted, lamenting at some great length the relative lack of hurricane I was experiencing. A friend of mine told me to stop tempting fate, to be careful what I wished for, as it were. Seems I should have heeded her call. Though there was not profound damage here in Wolfville, trees were uprooted, and there was flooding in Halifax County and along the Eastern Shore. Two people, including an on-duty paramedic, were killed when trees fell on their vehicles.
I, for some reason, still find some measure of peace amidst the wind and water. Which, I assure you, did eventually come to the valley, too. All in all, I liked it.
In other news:
I've been fortunate enough to find a friend who is willing to help me improve my swimming, so I suspect I'll be at the pool a bit more often. Yay!
On Thursday afternoon, the South Shore Presbytery of the United Church of Canada approved my request to have a Discernment Committee formed. Over the next twelve months, that Committee will, with me, investigate my suitability for the ministry, and, of equal importance, the ministry's suitability for me.
The Computer Architecture midterm on Thursday was laden with academic reamage. One can only assume that things went just about as poorly with everyone else, when you get an e-mail from the professor which begins, "The following topics have not been very successful and may appear again in midterm 2...", and then names about half the topics covered on the midterm.
Regardless, that's the kind of week it's been. Ta.
