Heavy overcast, total calm, temp -2C, clearing and cool temps for the next few days with snow in the forecast for the weekend.

A boat caught fire yesterday around Ross Island, fortunate other boats nearby, no injuries. Arthur's father lost in the same area forty years ago, his body never found. Source of the fire not known as yet, able to tow the boat to the wharf where the Volunteer Fire Dept able to extinguish the flames with foam, deck hose just wouldn't get the job done.

Dear Rob:

We are at zero - with no wind. Literally, if there was no snow you could go out and mow the lawn :) I should attempt the fruit tree trimming today.

When you described the fire on the boat - that must have been what my semi-conscious mind was hearing on the CBC radio enterviews this morning at 6:00 ish. They were interviewing a couple of men (Armstrongs??) and talking about fire on the vessel, etc. etc. This was also kind of spooky because last night I was reading my new art book from an artist in Newfoundland and there was one whole chapter on how terrifying it was for the men to have a fire - back in the day - because they would have to abandon ship and they were like 'no-where' and they didn't have communication devices back then.

How weird is that?

Anyway - glad that all is well although I am sure the cost of repairs will not make everyone feel so cheery.

On to the projects. Have a great day.

Word. Chunks.
