at times by boat, to ensure residents had left. Parts of Nova Scotia got
248+ mm of rain, their wettest May ever. Halifax had 11 straight days of
rain (3 over 55 mm). A Hebbville woman tied her greenhouse to a tree when it
began floating away.

2005: Constant high winds and record rains caused the lobster season between
Digby and Halifax, NS, to be extended by a week. Yarmouth and Halifax set
new May rainfall records of over 300 mm. In high winds, traps often bump

crevices, munching on vegetation blown their way by gust-driven currents,
until the water clears.
