No sun this morning, overcast, temp hovering around the freezing mark. Forecast suggesting temp might rise a few degrees with 'mixed precip', clearing overnight, tomorrow similar temps, however cooler temps on the way as the week unfolds.

A number of boats whittling scallops most of the day yesterday, quite a number of crew required to get them cleaned up. Has been many years that have seen such activity in the scallop world.

Lobster crates still in fair numbers at the lobster car, truck going this morning a number of them off to Boston I suspect. Tankhouse soon to come alive again with overseas markets coming on stream.

Good morning, Rob, and a good Sunday to you.

We started out the morning very overcast but the sun has now come out and the skies are a lovely blue. Chilly out but not cold.

That will change in another day or two, I'd better enjoy it while I can. No rain but overnight freezing temps are on tap.

Hubby has expressed a desire for a pot of dried white limas and ham today. I'll need to make a run to the grocer; I have the dried beans but not the ham.

I just noticed the first wave of the spring goldfinch migration at the neighbor's feeder a little while ago. It appears that I bought fresh niger just in time. I hope I have enough - they go through it pretty fast.

Mornin David, similar weather conditions just to the north of you. Must say the scallopers have enjoyed the fact wind has been limited, with the weather and quantity those boats that changed from lobster to scallops appear to have made the right decision, at least for the outset.

Yes Rob is pleased with himself, and deservedly so, he never put that kind of effort in his scholastic career, a welcome change for sure. He hasn't been home since leaving to return to school. Donna was up last week, managed to have lunch with him and drop a bit of cash so they could take in a movie this weekend.

Tankhouse is full, ready to start moving stock, believe the Asian New Year is the impetus for getting things moving. Tony and his son have lobsters boarding there, speculating on what price increase he is content with before letting them go. A new wrinkle for local fishery, must be looking good, already in throes of increasing capacity by 100%.

Have a good one.

Rob
