Looking across the harbour no problem telling it is January. Vapour beginning to hide the Ross Island shore, attempting snow flurries. A NW breeze 15-20KPH makes the -16C outside temp down to -25C with the windchill. No expectation to rise much as the day moves along, however by Tuesday a bit of respit.

Hockey game a success, with the ISLANDERS coming out with a 4-3 victory. The complex a happening spot with a Market underway at the same time, also a basketball game at the school give one many choices.

On the tour with mom lots of folks at the soutehrn end of the island taking in the fruits of the strong winds we have had this past few days. Lots of surf, nice to watch and listen with the tide well up quite a display. Mom has poor vision, however she had no problem taking in the show.

Afternoon CHUNKS, something like a mother-in-laws kiss this afternoon, very chilly. Windchill makes lt around -20C. Will be better sometime within next day or so.

The hockey game well attended and lots fun for both groups. The KV kids each received a Grand Manan pin and a small bumper sticker of the arena logo to commerate the occasion -great fun

Rob dosen't play on this team his group don't have the skill level to compete in a league. However they are having a grand time within his peer group. He also plays with the men in a group that are likewise skill challenged. Don't think they worry too much about keeping score, content to be on the ice.

The wave action was something to witness yesterday,just alot of fun watching mother nature in commence.

Dear Rob:

Hooray for the Islanders!!!! What a way to start the season - with a real close nail biter. The best kind of games. Does your Rob play on that team?

What kind of market did you have?

I was talking to Jeanne and she said everybody on the island went down past her house yesterday to Southwest Head. She said the waves were spectacular and in fact some of the biggest that have happened for quite a while. I, of course, was very jealous that I wasn't there to see it.

Don't care if it is freezing or not - I am going out for a hike. It becomes too easy to say it's cold so I will just stay in. Extra layers for me today.

Have a good one basking in the glory of the win.

Word. Chunks.
