HURRICANE JUAN

 

 

Hurricane Juan, which passed over Halifax late Sunday, September 28th/early Monday September 29th,  can stand alongside the Halifax Explosion as an event that changed the look of this city in one day.  As I drove and walked through the city in the days that followed, it was almost surreal.  This time, the city's trees, heavy with foliage not yet changing color for the season, fell victim to the hurricane's wind.  Decades of growth, in some cases over a century of growth came to an end all over the city.  I present just a few pictures I was able to capture on September 30th, 2003:
