Typical Easter Morning weather, even if it is the first week of April past. Overcast, spitting flurries, temp on the plus side saying 6C, however seems much cooler outside. Nasty weather for the day, and most of the week no sun in forecast for at least three days out.

Full tides, one clammer taking advantage, lots of brant and other waterfowl getting at sea vegetation they wouldn't normally have the opportunity.

Emily at Quispam till tomorrow, our family gathering rather light. However turkey and all the fixn's the order of the day.

Chunks - and a happy Easter to you, too! You obviously worked a whole lot harder than I did today, but that's ok. You've got the leftovers, and I don't!

I wish I could send you some of our warmth. There are lots of folks around here pining for some cooler weather before summer truly sets in. We'll see.

Glad to hear you had a successful day!

Dear Rob:

Nine thirty and am just finishing up the clean-up, etc.
Many on deck for the feast. Everyone so stuffed walking around outside in the snow trying to get relief :)

Speaking of snow - 6" on the deck when I got up and it snowed ALL DAY?? What the hell? Kids had to drive to Sussex to get mother and I was a bit worried about them driving - but they made it okay. Cody has just taken her back. Girls now getting ready to go back to Fredericton - over the pass in pitch dark and with snow. They have studying so won't stay. I will have a heart attack until they get there.

Well, rent-a-daughter has just arrived to get Sarah so must go say good-bye.

Glad your day was great if a tad on the light side for company. Bet you didn't have as many dishes as I - two hours later. Arg.

Have a great day tomorrow and HAPPY EASTER.

Word. Chunks.

Easter greetings to you and yours. It's that time of year - we're beginning to fuss about heat, while you're still talking of snow. Ah, well.

Had an interesting day yesterday, making a trip to a 400 acre patch of unbroken prairie that still exists about two hours from me. It was beautiful, once I found it, a dense mixture of new grasses and scattered flowers. Amazing to think of it never being broken.

Hope your day is wonderful. Peaceful here, with a hint of good rain, but it appears all of the egg hunts will escape.

appy Easter suspect you are on the Garden of the Gulf by this time. Weather shouldn`t have been too much of a problem unless you are on the road at the moment. Snow, enough to cover the ground, letting up and soon to change to rain I suspect, temp slowly on the rise had been below the freezing mark now to starting to rise.

Not good to hear the STINSON plant going out of production first for sardines, now for lobster. The only sardine packing I know of now all in Blacks Harbour, in the not too distant past small plants very common on both sides of the border.

Don`t get Bangor weather, our cable gives us Boston. Can recall when TV first being introduced quite a coup when a guy could boast he had received a signal from Bangor via the outside antenna, albiet mostly snowy.

Price the same, $5.75-$6lb. range, if yours has started to decline we can`t be far behind.

Our Emily on the mainland for the holiday, returns to the fold tomorrow. Things they are a changing, guess it is referred to growing up.

Happy Easter from a snowy Ingalls Head, temp just below the freezing mark, ground now covered with the white stuff, still calling for rain by this evening.

We attend the Farmer's Market in Fredericton on occasion, not my favourite way to spend the morning. Interesting for sure, however you have to move with the crowd or risk getting mowed over. Very popular spot to say the least, quality purchases if one has the patience. I always find it difficult to wait in line to give somebody my money.

Has been a Market once a month here all winter, very popular, a great social event, lots of food and a chance to congregate and visit while enjoying a snack. All local folks, got of to a slow start last fall, now eagerly anticipated, combined with folks coming to play hockey over the same time period can make for a busy spot.
