There must have been 500 trees down between Parksville and Port Alberni. The road through Cathedral Grove was closed yesterday, so I worked from home. I could see today from the 35 mile drive that the devestation was considerable. It’s amazing what 12hrs of 65mph winds and 125mm rains can do to 200ft trees and 2000ft mountain sides. No one was killed, thankfully, though many homes and cars and stores were damaged by falling towers of wood and rising walls of water. It’s a good day to read Job 38 and consider our status before God.
