NW wind has relented, however at -16C dosen't take much air movement to make it COLDER. Little chance for vapour this morning, ice nearly complete between here and Ross Island, first time that has been the case in quite a few years. Red sky evident behind Ross Island, also sea smoke sky high, interesting visual. The weather to moderate O so slow might have plus temps by mid week.

Needless to say things quiet in the fishery, at all disciplines. The woodpile taking a beating this week, guess that is what is there for, also woods will now be stiff, no excuse not to give it a go over the weekend.

Dear Rob:

Yup! It is still freezing here! The wind is just unbelievable. If we ever get anything above -15 it is going to be like a heat wave.

The complaints are starting to come in fast and furious at the store now. At first of the cold snap it was: Oh well, how long can it last ..... we are Canadians, we can take it .... just put on another layer, etc. Now, it is - I can't stand any more, everything is frozen, can't do anything, blah, blah, blah. :) Personally, I still will take this over a heatwave any day of the week.

Well, going to attempt a drive to town. Keep warm and if in the woods tomorrow - be careful. It will be like sawing in to stainless steel the trees will be so frozen.

Word. Chunks.

CHUNKS dosen't appear to be anywhere but the wood stove to get any relief from the cold. The wind has returned, was not too bad when I left the house earliar, not the case right now.

I hope to have the ambition to get in the woods tomorrw, but haven't attempted to get the ATV in commence for quite sometime, or the chainssaqw for that matter, will see what morning brings.

Quiet around the island, some making plans to head for warmer climes in a few weeks, however not the numbers in the past, certainly a reflection of the economy around these parts.

Stay warm.

Mornin David, similar weather just up the shore, appears remaining the same for next few days. Yes the shed will take awhile before the place is acceptable for sure. Can't imagine not being welcome to take the effort into the kitchen, think of the quality time you could enjoy together.

Lobster fisherman from PEI and NB at odds, the NB side of the Strait want to increase the carpace size for sale, the PEI position is to keep things as they are, a difficult resolution for sure.

Not much going on in the fishery last week, a combination of wind and cold makes it easy to say best stay around the wood fire somewhere.

Hope you get back in the shed before too long, appears might have rain by mid-week, fine with me.
