2 more sleeps! Can't wait to get out from under this rain cloud! Anyone else tired of this monsoon in this end of NS? The animals are lining up in pairs and I'm pretty sure my neighbor just rigged his car up with an outboard motor!

Don't even talk to me about the weather. It's been two weeks of rain in Halifax. We have seen the sun for an hour or two but it had rained everyday. I always wonder why I stay here lol

Have fun down in Disney. We are going down the first week of December and can't wait.

Hi everyone!
My name is Kristin, I live in the Niagara region.
My daughter Devyn who is 18 will be living in the Bridgewater, Nova Scotia Region starting December 1st. She is taking part in "katimavik" is a wonderful volunteer program where the kids live and volunteer in different parts of Canada.
I was wondering if anyone could advise me how we could get Devyn (by ground transfer) to Halifax airport to meet us at Disney! I have tried to do research online, and unfortunately I am familiar not with the area. I do hope that I can visit!
Thank you all so much for the advice!!!
Kristin

No problem.....how much time between when she starts and when you're going? Knowing Bridgewater she'll no doubt make connections with someone that would be willing to take her right to the airport....

My favorite travelling with strangers story actually involves Bridgewater.....a few years ago I went with a group of fellow apple growers to Michigan....ended up having to travel in the worst storm of the year which hit here at home much harder then Michigan but it had us delayed overnight in Detroit. Getting back to the Detroit airport we were now traveling with several other passengers that had been delayed as well. Of course, nothing brings people together more then a shared misfortune so we were making friends all around.

Turned out one of the gentleman now on our plane was a businessman from Mexico, named Juan (I kid you not), who was going to Bridgewater to visit his teenage son who was doing an exchange at Bridgewater High School. At that point we were getting in at midnight, had heard from family that it was very icy still and were all very concerned that this fellow was going to be renting a car and driving to the South Shore, in the dark, in those road conditions, so we were all trying to encourage him to stay at the airport hotel for the night. Juan was pretty determined to head out though.

Once we finally boarded the plane (having endured not only the weather delays but also NorthWest's unofficial pilot strike 'we-can't-take-off-because-the-crew-isn't-all-here' delays) we of course got settled in our seats and started to get to know our neighbors again. Juan was sitting behind my friend, Helen, who got chatty with her seat mate and quickly the subject of where home was came up. Turned out her seat mate was from Bridgewater! "What a coincidence!" Helen says, "Juan here is visiting his son in Bridgewater". The gentleman asks where Juan's son is staying and in true 'it's a small world' fashion it turns out he's staying with this man's cousin!!!!!!!!!

Helen lets it spill what Juan is planning to do that night and the fellow says "Under absolutly no circumstances are you doing that! I'm driving you! You can worry about a rental car in Bridgewater". Helen said that when they walked off the plane the guy pulled out his cell phone, called his cousin and told her what was going on. Juan got to talk to his son and the last I heard he was pretty impressed with Nova Scotians....

Suffice to say you're daughter's going to love it here....

That is such a wonderful story!! It made me smile, and feel at ease. She turns 18 years old today and in my eyes is still such a babe. She is so friendly and outgoing I am afraid that she may never want to come home to Ontario again because she will love Nova Scotia so much.
She will be moving to Bridgewater on Dec.1 and we will leave for Orlando Jan.5, so my fingers are crossed. I cannot wait to come to visit.
Thank you so much again.
Kristin

In another small world turn, I live in Bridgewater and I think the katimavick house moved from where it was to the Baptist church which I live directly behind. The Katimavick van is always in the parking lot so I assume that is where the kids are staying, (there are two nice older houses on the property). Thanks to the lovely windy weather we have been having part of our fence fell down and I can see really well into the parking lot now.

I am not from Bridgewater, but the people here are friendly and the town is small. We lived in Toronto before so the move here has been an adjustment to a small community, but Halifax is close

Have fun down in Disney. We are going down the first week of December and can't wait.
The only thing keeping me going through this weather is the fact that I will be at Disney soon...very soon. Same week as you! Bedford was flooding today...

We are at CR from the 5th to 12th....can't wait - it's our first Christmas trip! Have fun! I'm hoping for good weather for you!

That is so funny!!!! I could get my daughter to bring something from Toronto if you like! That is such a busy city but so much fun. But Ontario must seem balmy and warm compared to Nova Scotia.
My daughter Devyn is fairly tall and has crazy hair(dreadlocks). If if you see her say hello! My daughter is sweet and friendly and I am sure that she will fit in.
Thanks for the good news.

So excited!

I just booked my daughter's flight from Halifax to Orlando for Jan8th!! Westjet had a direct flight, it was 423.00 round trip including tax.
I was so happy with this!! I was a little nervous about her transferring in Newark if we were going to book with Continental, so this works just fine!
Happy Sunday everyone!
Kristin
