    Joel, This weekend is the first anniversary of Hurricane Juan, the first hurricane to hit our generation in the Canadian Maritimes.  There is a lot of psychological impact here on this first anniversary.  Even with no more than the usual autumn winds, our marina is half empty already, and it was a very quiet summer.  Juan touched most of the 300 boats in Charlottetown harbour last year.  Some are still being repaired.  I have been on a mini speaking tour with my Juan talk.
    But I can only barely imagine what this hurricane season has been like down there.  We have been watching it extremely closely, since Juan spawned due south of Halifax, and gave us only 3 days' warning.  So we are all much more tuned in than before.  And we have been getting emails from Canadian boaters touched by the hurricanes from one end of the Caribbean to the other in recent weeks.  Some have simply lost their retirements to wind and waves.
    Our thoughts are with you and all other boaters trying to navigate through what appears to have been a devastating season.
    Our barbeque cover vanished in Juan.  We suspect it ended up in Newfoundland.  Keep yours lashed down.
