A different weather day in commence, stars out last evening one moment then light snow showed up and continues to fall, being pushed around with a NE breeze 10-15KPH, appears we are on the edge of major system to the north and east of us. Temp to make it mid single digits in the minus category, similar conditions for the next couple of days.

Plans to get in the woods thwarted by required gear, ATV had new battery, at first refused to go, once got going by noon throttle cable froze. Managed to get in commence by mid-afternoon, then very easy to talk myself out of the project for a day or so.

Enough snow down for the plow to be out pushing same off the road, weatherman advising amount to be less than 5CM.

Afternoon CHUNKS, four days in the dark quite a stretch to say the least, glad to hear you guys managed to 'weather' the more than a little problem. We really didn't notice too much out of the ordinary, lots of gawking over the Bay. Lots of wave action down Deep Cove way, a few shingles missing,also the boat missed one trip.

Emily was without power for most of the day, flashlight on her phone saved the day, IPHONE very versatile piece of gear it seems. She enroute back to UNB by bus, plan is to be back in time for SUPER BOWL, going to have a look at the snowdown.

Goodness.. It sounds like winter is in full force up your way.

I think your ATV is sulking about having to go to work in nasty, cold weather!

Chunks, sorry to hear that your area was hit that hard. Hope everyone gets back on the grid soon.

Wish I could send you all some of our balmy 10C temps and sun. Spring will be arriving before too long, so hang on!

Dear Rob:

Good morning! AND a great one it is.

We just got our hydro back. We have had none since Thursday at 10:00 a.m. We got hit with 110 kph wind gusts and there were trees down everywhere across the wires. Our neighbour lost the top 10 feet of her blue spruce in one of the big gusts.

We have been roughing it ever since. Friday night some people got power returned so whoever landed over here with a generator, which made life a little bit better. Luckily, we are pretty much always prepared. I had water run off and the barbecue was put in to service for a lot of the neighbours. The wood stove was cranking for four straight days, we were one of the lucky ones, and we could boil water, etc., on it. Daryl even cooked food down there quite a bit.

I escaped to town on Saturday. My hairdresser took pity and gave me a luxury shampoo. I am now anticipating a hot shower once the water heater gets up to temp.

It has been a long haul but we pulled through it okay. Some others not so lucky. The boys are so excited they will be able to watch super bowl after all.

From this we learned a lot and all pulled together to help out whoever didn't have something.

I didn't have any way to talk to you all but I hope everyone made out okay with the storm of the century there.

Word. Chunks.

Good morning Rob.
I think that wether it's clear or cloudy ob Feb. 2 we can always expect another 6 weeks of winter here on the prairie.
Enjoy your day.
