Typical mid-March morning ground snow covered overnight, plow going by with sparks flying making sure road safe for the school bus crowd. Temp right at the freezing mark to rise mid single digits overcast for the day. A breeze 20-25KPH northerly for the day, warmer temps with double digits on the plus side by the weekend.

No traps moving this week, wind nasty with a bit of easterly in it, not worth the banging around for the return, better weather not far off.

Ice withdrawal settling in, plant to be shut off by months end. Rob played for four hours last evening, his regular group then mens. Nearly fifty bodies for the mens, grand time by all, nobody keeping score just having at it.

Afternoon David, not possible you have been off the water for three months. Weather forecast is in your favour for next week, can't beat spring fishing for working environment, return on time maybe a little suspect.

A $6/lb lobster unheard of on either side of the line for alongtime. Have heard none n the system, plus if you have buyers in competion for your product best take advantage while you can. Only hope that all buyers will survive, a monopoly not good for the producer. Don't what the price is here, last I heard had started to drop below the $5 level. More traps in the water price begins to diminish, can't tell if there is a correlation, however a cynical indvidual might suggest such a thing.

Overall local fishing news quiet, will pick up as the weather improves. No herring news, certainly no groundfish.

Afternoon CHUNKS, snow this morning, nearly fog going to the rack last night. Temps remain around the freezing level, roads are clear, remains overcast, but clearing all the time.

Had no scraping or the dreaded freezing rain to contend with - much appreciated from the Weather Gods. Longrange looking good with temps in the mid-teens within the week, and sun if you can imagine.

Brant becoming more common, and the dreaded Geese on the lawn between the house and seawall, only a pair, will have to get them off the notion they are welcome. Things too messy, and thier gifts hange around much to long and in great quantity. Lots of Black Ducks taking advantage of the small pool of fresh water by the seawall, spring is coming.

Dear Rob:

YESTERDAY: Scraped an inch of ice off my car before heading to work - coffee break - scraped half an inch off (not so bad as going to Tim Hortons :) - leave from work - more scraping. Freezing rain all afternoon. Blarg!

TODAY: Shoulder to kitchen door to get out. Shovel off deck and to bird feeders. Scrap snow and ice off car - shovel half the driveway. Decide to 'run it' and get air to clear driveway end. Hubby came home from work and cancelled that plan.

Now into flurries and wind. BLARG!

How did I rack leaves in t-shirt Monday and then get back to this?

Thinking may have to have an extra pop on St. Patricks day just to get over it.

Have a great day.

Word. Chunks.

Good morning,
Launched the boat yesterday--freezing rain, snow showers, NE 20-25mph, 28 degrees F. When we got to the launch ramp, I tried to get the boat hauler to take the boat back to the storage yard but he wouldn't do it. Price jumped to $6 here as I think there is a bit of price war going on between dealers in the area. That sounds good but probably bodes not so good for us lobster catchers.
The work on the bathroom and living room is winding down slowly. It will be nice to be back home on a permanent basis.
Winter vacation, semi-retirement is about done with. Funny that I don't feel much rested up from the last 3 months but I still want to get back at it.
