Many guests are asking what happened to Cabot Shores and to
Cape Breton during Hurricane Irene.
Well, it pretty much passed over us, hit Quebec much worse
and according to my friend, Dr. Earle Williams of Norfalk, it
places like Virginia much worse. He said: “I had two sump
pumps going for 24 hours to safeguard my basement. We took
the hit for you!”
And glad they did. Not that we didn’t prepare. Took the
Eagle Feather ferry out of the water and did some repairs.
Next day winds were bad enough to cancel the Englishtown
Ferry, but after that, it was back in action, as was most of Cape
In this case, hurricane preparation was stronger than the
fact of Hurricane Irene.
Having lost a Yurt after Hurricane Katrina, we’d rather prepare
well than get hit at all…
