Weather conditions not improving, on the contrary can expect extreme cold, wind and possible blizzard over the next couple of days. Currently beginning to lightly snow, temps a -21C moved around by northerly 20KPH making it seem more like -30C, similar conditions till at least the weekend.

Rob and Rachel returned to St. John this morning ahead of the weather, a good plan for sure. The two weeks they were home disappeared in quick time fore sure. He had lots of hours with his alma matter to give him a leg up to begin the New Year.

Donna has the interior void of decorations, will take a bit of a change in the weather before any such thing will be accomplished on the outside, too damned cold.

Afternoon David, yes it good to see the kids be aware of the weather and take proper steps to take advantage of the elements best for travelling, especially this time of year she is well ahead of the storm. 1500HRS here, clear, wind from NE looking to increase from the current 25-30KPH.
Rob on the first boat this morning as soon as he got ashore clear and cold but no snow. Vapour has and continues to be skyhigh near record cold for this time of year, rain my mid next week, also typical.


Traps, for some, coming ashore these guys are preparing for scalloping, difficult weather to be working in, but things are moving.

Stay warm.

afternoon,
Our Emily out of here on first boat @ 6:25AM headed back to PEI. At 11:15 she was in St George looking for a bit to eat. Travelling described as very good so seems she is ahead of storm as well, as was her desire. Good to see the kids taking a look at travel conditions before they embark, esp this winter.

0 degrees here, NE 20 mph, headed to 40 mph or so with snow up to 10-12". Last boat of the day cancelled as well as a warning of cancellation of boats tomorrow. Anyone who wanted an old fashioned winter is getting their wish. Have to fill the wood box and make sure the generator is functioning up to snuff, then hunker down for another blast.

Boat on jack stands looking better all the time.

Dear Rob:

A smart move for Lil Rob to stop in to Bretts. Cody is starting Block 3 on January 6 so there will definitely be an empty bay. Good luck to him.

It is so stinking cold here. Your nostrils literally freeze the minute you step out of your car or house and speaking of cars ... everything is frozen solid ... creaking, banging, thrashing ... you never know if you have something broke or just frozen.

Went to the woods yesterday. Honestly, if Andrew didn't have the road plowed down to the yard you would not be getting anywhere near. The snow in my woods is about up to your waist at this point. Snowshoes a staple in the trunk of the car ... now till spring.

Well, speaking of decorations .. better get to mine. Non-stop company does not allow much time for anything else. Arg.

Stay warm (if possible) and have a good day. Will check out the site now for the Swallowtail. Thanks for tip.

Word. Chunks.

Mornin CHUNKS, a darned cold one it is, looking for gale force later on today with snow overnight just the amount hasn't been determined as yet.

Take a look at the webcam for Swallow Tail, almost obliterated by 'sea smoke' and snow blowing across the site. The Sea Smoke will be around for most of the weekend I suspect.

Rob left to get ahead of the mess, plus he has to see a couple of businesses prior to commencing school on Monday. His first stop was BRETT'S, as he was getting prepared for the boat seems they must have a good rep amongst the worker bees.

Try to stay warm, will not be heading into the woods under these conditions.
