Weatherman correct, lots of rain and SE driving, not the wind forecasted yesterday, 25-30KPH, temp a mild 16C. Radar suggesting a respite from the rain by this afternoon, a slight drop in the wind, then a change of direction and more wind overnight and the remainder of the weekend, it is fall.

Donna watching the weather, today appears to be about as good a day to cross the Bay then any for the next few days.

Arena ice nearing completion, ice painted, lines and banner on, now attempting to get some thickness before skates hit the ice. Has been warm and humid overnight and during the day slowing the process to some degree, however making progress.

Dear Rob:

We are in the same weather as you. If you step out on to the deck at my place you have to beware wet soggy maple leaves that slap you in the face at 30 mph. :) I have a lot of trees.

Didn't realize Donna was still adrift. Are you starving by now - or did she leave you a tonne of food
? I am not so sure about today being a great day to cross, but again, like you say - when is?

Hubby at the curling bonfeld at Thistle. Yesterday, first game, they played Grand Manan. They also beat Grand Manan which didn't go over so good. Hubby said the skip (I think) of the G.M. team went to throw his first stone and lost his footing. He went down and hit his head on the ice. D said he got right up and said he was okay - but hubby felt he had given it quite a smash. Hope he really was okay.

Rent a daughter landed here last night - in a hurry. She had been in the woods all day doing a study on trees of some sort with the rest of her 4th year mates. Upon showering later she found a tick on her body. I did the operation but still wanted her to go on to the hospital but that was a no go. I am so afraid of Lymne disease. So, praying that all turns out well there too.

How is Otis today?

Well, I see them coming so better get the coffee on. Have a great windy day. Hold on to your hat.

Word. Chunks.

P.S. David; I would have killed to see the gannets, let alone watching them dive for bait. I have only seen them once - at Eel Brook - putting on a great diving show. Awesome.

Morning,
Wet, very, very wet, windy and wild seem to be the operative words for the day. Forecast for dryer weather to come with wind more with a westerly cant to it.

I took up my first load of traps this week. This is the earliest I have ever taken up traps. The desire to keep going is still here but the dollars and cents don't add up in shoal water so the heck with it. I'll take traps up as the lobsters disappear inside instead of chasing the lobsters outside.

On Wednesday we went from thick fog to NW 30 mph in 5 minutes with driving rain. While still foggy many of us had gannets diving for the bait we were throwing overboard. None of us remembered gannets along side our boats chasing bait.
