Weatherman has it correct, currently rain the order of the day, temp 4C, has been raining overnight, brown lawn, snowdrifts still in evidence, will take more than just a little rain to get rid of the stuff. A slight draft from SW, rain/showers till this afternoon then a bit of clearing, temps remaining near the freezing level.

Whitehead not reported on over the weekend, they were without power till sometime on Sunday. Ferry not running on Sat., local crew busy keeping this part of the world going. Crew from the mainland arrived on Sunday to assist local hydro, all hands certainly to be commended, included is the road crew, dedication to service superior for sure.

Afternoon,
We survived in fine fashion. Kind of hard to measure the snow-there was either none at all or a big drift. I'm guessing probably 12-18". That was the average all around us. Wind was the issue. One gust of 112 mph was reported on Great Cranberry, our sister island. Even if the guage was off a bit, that is a big bag of wind. Our power blinked once but remained on. We lost our internet connection when one of the receivers blew away. We have a series of nodules that relay the internet signal around the island and one of the nods in the middle of the whole deal came unglued. Just back online today. This seems to be a winter of wind.

One younger guy went fishing Monday morning and said his gear was still where he left it but some of the rope was chafed up a bit. I think he was lucky that it was still there.

What and when does it all happen all over again.

Mornin CHUNKS, thought you might have been starved for power after the weekend, did not receive your note at any rate.
Rain clearing some of the snow as we speak, rained overnight, is expected to for the next few hours, snow for you folks a little inland.

Have a look at the SWALLOWTAIL KEEPERS SOCIETY web page for some great pictures of the storm this past weekend.

Hangar at the airport completly destroyed torn off its foundation and blew into the woods. Aircraft in the hangar at the time, don't know what amount of damage they suffered. Lots of the Castalia Bank gone, one of the residents along there told me she has been there for 46 years never seen anything like and believes they lost 20' of thier property facing the water.

Am amazed at the job the hydro and road crews did to maintain service and keep the roads not only open by safe for travel.

Hope you don't have too much more snow, this stuff will be hard to handle so wet.
