Must be the weekend, another storm possibly a blizzard this way comes. A breeze from NW, either drizzle or wet snow attempting to hit the ground, visiblity still allows one to see Ross Island shore. The storm fairly quick in paying the visit, clearing tomorrow with rain possible by mid week.

Emily supposed to take bus back to UNB this afternoon, further away from the Bay more intense the snowfall, she may have another day in Quispam. Rob's group have a game this morning, plan is to hit the 1:30PM trip out of Blks, seems they should be just ahead of the high winds and precip.

My kitchen cabinets need redoing, too, David. Wanna come down South for a job, where the weather is balmy, after you leave Baltimore/Phil? LOL

Hi, Rob. Ewwww... More snow and ice? Guess that's business as usual for your area. I know ya'll will be glad when Spring arrives.

Spring sprung here a few weeks early but we had a freeze last night. I expect some of the early bloomers took a hit.

South Carolina got a little dusting of snow last night, too. Nothing here in Charleston but the Grand Strand accummulated a couple of inches. It's probably melted off by now, except in shady areas.

I'm sure the kids are disappointed. Snow and icy roads on the weekends are no good: they don't get you a Snow Day pass from attending school. I remember anxiously waiting to hear if school was closed for the day, due to icy conditions and how excited I'd be, if they did. It was so depressing if I still had to go in.

Yes, just a little bit of snow or ice on the roads shuts down businesses and schools here for the day. Or delays opening. You may laugh but we don't have conditions like this often enought to justify the expense of buying the road equipment to deal with it. Or the tires. Tire chains, etc.

Besides that, not many natives here have much experience in driving in icy/snowy conditions. Only our Northern visitors do.

Oh, boy, Young Rob has his first car? I'll bet he is raring to get his license and will be highly disappointed if the weather puts paid to him taking his test.

Dear Rob:

Wind just starting to pick up here and snow just began at 11:30. Not to much of a deal yet. It does have the look of a potential nightmare though. Oh well, pretty much used to it.

A couple of the girls from the store going away on trips so hope that they had early flights this morning out of Saint John. They would have made it then, right now, not sure.

Bernice sounds like a great car. A girl who works for me, and lives in queen's co., has one. She drives an hour to work every day and then home. Her roads are all back country, mountain passes, etc. Only sand on her roads, no salt. Driving hell. Anyway, that car gets her through anything. I think Rob will be happy, even though it is 'granny'. It is safe. Here's hoping for a successful test if it happens tomorrow.

Have a great day. Hopefully, we won'[t have to shovel too much. Arg.

Word. Chunks.

p.s. to DAVID - I could use my cupboards redone if you get bored. My husband would laugh if I even suggested he do it. :)

A damp good mornin to ya David, would think we are just a couple of hours from your weather condtions. Like you have kids around the area, that should be travelling later on today. Believe Rob will be ahead of the major stuff, Emily will be dependant on the Bus Line if she has another evening in Quispam or not.

The few traps that are inshore around North Head travelled great distnces last weekend. The trawl traps appear to be none the worse for wear, at least the folks that I have talked with are telling me. I lost the cap off my stove pipe, and a few shingles off the roof, need new roof this summer this will insure I don't put it off any longer.

Enjoy your excursion to the U.S.A.

Morning CHUNKS, similar conditions that David is mentioning here at Ingalls Head, temp remains at the freezing mark. No accumulation of ice on trees or lines as of yet, wind just beginning to increase a bit at a time. No question we will be getting the snow it appears the rain travelling little further east that I would like.

Rob was supposed to take his Drivers Test tomorrow, but would think that is in jeporday if the weather materializes as forecast. He will be disappointed he has acquired BERNICE, a 'Granny Wagon', hence the name. She is 2002 SEBRING, only 160K, mechanically very good, requires a bit of bodywork, currently underway then she will pass Motor Vehicle Inspection. He is mighty proud of 'her', now remains to be seen if he will require many trips to get his license, went through all the tests getting his Permit. He dosen't lack for confidence, will wait and see.

Have a good one.

Good morning,
20 degrees with NW wind at a modest 20 mph, dusting of snow last night. Later today scheduled for more snow and gale force winds. Rachel at her Gram's house scheduled to fly from Portland to Philly via Detroit this afternoon. Time will tell on that flight.

Longer days do arouse the desire to go fishing but snow, wind and wintry weather do a good job of keeping me from getting too excited. I will be ready when the more springlike weather arrives.

We leave for Baltimore/Phil Tuesday afternoon. The job for the next two days is remove all the lower kitchen cabinet doors and drawers, wash and sand them in prep for a couple of coats of urethane while we are gone. I don't mind doing the urethaning but the odor is most unpleasant when you have to live with it.
