Humid, 18C, foggy and overcast, threat of more showers the order of the day, indeed for the next several days, temps to drop back a few degrees in the process.

The long weekend weather not co-operating with rain, showers and Tstorms all possible. Lots of hot weather to west and south of us to insure the predicted weather does take place.

Rob out at 5AM, shipping lobsters, Emily out at 6AM minding two youngsters before they all go to Summer Camp, makes for quiet evenings as all hands pretty tired by dark.

Herring news for the weirs on the back of the island good, lots of them around, seining on a daily basis. One weir, IRON LADY, in fishing order on front of the island, the only one that I am aware of at this time. In years past would be a dozen or more by this time of the season.

Dear Rob:

Seems like you have no problem getting 'in line' for the bathroom in the morning. Everyone is out of there by the time you get on deck. :) Nice. Not quite as well here.

I am glad to here that the herring seem to be putting in an appearance this year. Last year seemed to be terrible, or at least that was what was reported. I remember one year I was hiking down in to the Eel Brook. The water was on flat calm. The herring were literally jumping out of the water in the cove and the seagulls and gannets didn't even have to make an effort. They just flew low, opened their beaks, and scoped them up. Awesome!

Yesterday, try to imagine this, Hampton up to Sussex were under a tornado threat. I missed it, I was in the garden as I had told you. I thought someone had got their information wrong, but then a girlfriend posted a 1:00 minute video that she had taken with her cell phone - at the Moosehorn Bridge, two laner going toward Sussex. Clearly, you could see the shelf cloud and the funnel starting to form. I'd send it to you but you're not on my facebook, I don't think. Honest to Goodness Rob, have you ever heard or seen such a thing in this part of the world. We were under severe thunder storm watch after that - as was Charlotte Co./Grand Manan. Your storms were coming from Maine, ours from up North. This could be an indicator of things to come - or, how screwed up our weather is.

Today it is freezing - yesterday - so muggy I felt sick working outside. Go and figure. Oh well, putting on the sweat shirt and going out any way.

Have a great day and talk soon.

Word. Chunks.
