Another change in the weather this morning, a small covering of the white stuff. Quite a mess coming up from the south we appear to be on the edge, Nova Scotia to get a fair amount, flurries for this part of the world. Calm, temp a modest -8C, flurries for the day, temp to rise near freezing level, clearing overnight, moderating temps as the week moves along, with possible rain by the weekend.

This weather system hit way south, causing havoc in southern U.S. with ice the main culprit, vehicles stranded on commute home due to in ability to travel. Conditions to improve for that part of the world as the day unfolds.

Rob enjoying his choice, yesterday posted examples of his work, allowed to paint truck body that is destined for a customer/volunteer at the school. Little supervision, praised by not the teacher, but Instructor, good for him.

Hi, ho, Rob, from an icy Charleston.

Some businesses, offices and schools closed yesterday or let out early.

Our bosses let us go at noon yesterday, which in light of what happened in Atlanta, was a very good decision on their part. Everyone was able to clear out and get home before the nastiness arrived around 4:00.

We were told to call a hotline this morning, to see if we were to report in to work. I knew it was going to be near impossible to get to work, so asked if I could just take the day off.

How I'm going to get there tomorrow is another question. It will warm up but it will be later tomorrow, Both of our vehicles are totally encased in ice and I won't be able to get the truck doors open until things thaw. We do not have a carport or garage, more's the pity.

As you can see, we have power. So far. I've heard that there have been outages all around town.

I doubt that there'll be any golfers out today! lol

Mornin DAVID, yes one always comes away with a better understanding at these functions. Great to have both sides of the line involved, how the different bureaucracies impact on the fishery is something to try to get your head around for sure.

Marketing is where it seems to be going, locally at least, with the introduction of 'tankhouse storage'. Thus more control of the product plus value added from the grading of the catch. Co-Op, many years ago, was attempted locally, however a fisherman, by nature, is an independent individual the concept flourished for a short period but eventually folded.

Fishery locally quiet, weather has, and continues to be tough, cold and wind keeps boats at the wharf. Scallops a bonanza for a week and a half then quota caught. Lobster quality high, when they are landed, having a snack of one for lunch, gotta luv it.

Imagine your buoy's must be nearly painted by this time.

Stay warm

Rob
