Old Man Winter remains prominent again today, however some indication he is preparing to get out of town in a day or so. Currently -11C, westerly 20-25KPH, giving a windchill effect of -20C, clear, to moderate only slightly today, tomorrow minus in single digits, by the weekend temps on the plus side and moisture, similar temps well into next week.

Donna, and Lindsay off to St. John with her dad for his Dr.'s appointment. Appointment once they arrive, fortunate as they both have must stops, including COSTCO, and other establishments depending on allotted time.

This cold weather and wind have been tough on my woodpile, didn't have a full shed when season started, far from it now. Haven't been able to get in the woods with trailer to start replenishing for next year, and rain in the forecast for Sat.

Dear Rob:

With another day just like yesterday it is VERY HARD to think positive -- but I am trying. Today the wind actually feels like it is cutting through your head with no hat on. Blarg.

The rain certainly knocked back the snow here but trust me, we still have a tonne of the stuff. It is very hard for the deer and other critters to get around on it for sure.

Today everyone is back to work - thank God! Now maybe, just maybe, I can put a dent in it with no one here interrupting.

TRY HARD to stay warm - it definitely is a challenge these days.

Word. Chunks.

Mornin CHUNKS, the prairie winter weather conditions continue, with a change to Maritime winter conditions a day or so away. The temps and snow similar to what is and was common in Manitoba during our tenure a few years ago.

I haven't been 'ashore' since before Christmas as a consequence don't have a real sense of what folks on the mainland have for snow. Looking out over the harbour, no snow, just brown grass, no snow to outline the Ross Island Shore, don't have to go far in from the treeline and plenty of snow to deal with, but crusted and hard packed, with more rain coming this way on the weekend.

As you can imagine fishing fleet has been tied up, high winds, low temps, makes freezing spray and the lobster don't handle these conditions very well. If temp too cold they will drop their claws when cold air hits them.

A matter of a few months and conversation will turn to what should be put in the window boxes this year, think positive I guess.

Stay warm

Rob
