Morning sun reveals a rough sea from winds farther up the Strait of Georgia. As the rollers hit the edge of the sandstone reef it is enough to take my breath away and I want to shout into the roar of the wave. These storms often mean power outages on our small island off the southwest coast of Canada. This means that ferry sailings might be canceled. So within all of the storm’s beauty there is an underlying respect for the power of the wind and the sea.
