Today will bring clearing and a high of 0C(32F).
Tonight will see increasing cloudiness late this evening as the wind shifts to the west at 20 km/h (12 mph) overnight. The overnight low will be -6C(21F) but will rise to 3C(37F) by morning.
A quiet day on the prairie yesterday. Withe balmy temps I got Abbey out for her free run along the gopher trails. I caan't beleive the temps we here on the prairie have been experiencing. Usally January brings -40 temps and not the above freezing temps we've had.
I was goung to do more work on the air nailer case and the call of nature light but spent the afterrnoon working on the webcam which has been giving me problems the last couple of days. It seems that when the sun rises the display goes white. I was hoping that the cam hadn't died but downloaded the free version of Advanced system care, checked the reviews on it and ran it. When it was completed rearranging the registry, correcting errors there and checking for errors on the hard drive the cam came back to life. I then tried the app on the Queen's laptop hpopeing it would fix a registry error which doesn't allow a default printer to be set but no luck there. It looks like I'll have to back up there registry and manually edit it hopeing the answer to the problem I found on the web will fix it for the Queen. At At present she can't print a PDF document without an error saying no printer installed. To print it for her I have to transfer the document, via my home network, and print it from my comp. A real pain in the butt as he usally wants something printed when I'm busy doing something else. I wish I could teach her how to use the network but she won't touch my computer for fear of messing it up.
Reading the local news web page I saw there's a 14 year old girl missing.
I'll copy the story from Portageonline.com and include it now.
