Another change in the weather, rained heavy overnight, snow gone, temp going down, as westerly wind picks up cloud cover moving off. Temp -3, wind 20-25KPH, expected to be 45-50KPH by this afternoon. Rain again for tomorrow, then clearing and temps just below the freezing mark for the remainder of the week.

Tide is up, quite a run on the Ross Island Shore, yesterday could hear waves hitting the beach infront of the house, not a common occurrence. Boat didn't make its final trip due to weather conditions last evening.

Rob returning to St. John this afternoon, trip should be not too bad as long as wind remains in current direction.

Hi, ho, Rob.

We might get some of the white stuff starting Tuesday, if all conditions are right. The temps will be cold enough, that's for sure. It just depends on whether or not the precip passes by offshore or onshore. It's supposed to be slow moving precip, so we may have 1-3 days, where we could get snow and ice.

If we do get any precip at all, it will wreak havoc on the daily commutes to work. We don't have snow equipment, the roads will be a mess, the locals (including me) haven't a clue as to how to drive in snow/ice. Oh, yay.

The schools will probably close; they won't take chances with those school buses on icy roads.

I am SO ready for spring.

Dear Rob:

We had heavy snow - almost blizzard conditions - upon waking yesterday morning and those continued until well in to the afternoon. Then it remained flurries with whipping winds. After dark it started to rain and that kept up till past when I went to bed. It must have snowed again later because there is a skift on top of all the ice. We have snow flurries again now.

Was over in your neck of the woods on Friday. Came on the first boat with neighbour who had to do some job or other at the rink. He dropped me off at Seal Cove to visit the folks. That was apparently a good thing as the folks haven't had much company and have been stuck in the house (together) for TOO LONG. :) After lunch I had to drive Gerald down to Ingalls Head to get clams from a fellow and then we had to tour the wharfs. It was such a beautiful day, albeit cold. I got a picture of the demise of the Ross Island Light. Did they take the cap yet for the museum???

The boys came back to get me at 2:30 and a small card game was had then we made to the ferry - and Kinghornes - to pick up some lobster and scallops. We barely made it and were the last ones on. A good day to sail although a bit rough in the trench, certainly nothing like if we had been on the small boat.

Anywho, that was my weekend. Have a great day and stay warm.

Word. Chunks.
