The weather remains, unsettled in a big way, NE gale force at the moment, retreiving wood from the verandah gives the thought one on the tarmac at the airport as a jet prepares for take off. Temp a pleasant 4C, but feels much cooler, rain overnight, let up for the moment. The wind and weather conditions to remain similar for next few days.
Emily below decks, pretty well spent from exams, and farewells from her posse. Trip from Fredericton just in time, snow started as we left the city, places slush on the road, however nearing St.John rain the order of the day. Managed to make the 5:30PM Crossing, trip great given the wind direction and speed. Very little movement, maintained the schedule, impressive, previous vessels may not have been on the run in similar conditions.
No school message this morning, we are in rain, however snow conditions on the mainland have getting around difficult if not impossible in some locations.
