The sister headed for home. The weather looks a lot better for her trip home than it did when she came.
We had a great visit. The Queen was working days and the sister and me had a lot of 1 on 1 time together.
With the cold wind chills it's time to dig out the ski-doo suit for my walk with Abbey.

Hi, Tony! I guess Abbey has her own natural ski outfit! It looks as cold as the thermometer says it is! Well, it'll be our turn next week, as temps will be hovering around freezing!

Stay warm!

Ah those crisp prairie mornings, but is a "dry cold" as I recall, whatever the hell that meant, cold is cold. Didn't take much of a draft to make it uncomfortable at best, and dangerous in most instances.

Lobster Fishing in full swing, have had some poor weather days, first three days cancelled due to high winds, has been some wind days and cold since traps gone in the water. Standard procedure for the Bay of Fundy in November.

Yes Ross Island Light gone, looking across the harbour a mound of rubble all that can be seen, she stayed many years longer than I thought possible.

Stay warm.

Yes Tony with these really cold temps, you need to dress much warmer and if you have a wee coat for Abbey, it would be wise to put that on her as well. What you need for her is a blanket coat, a square of heavy material with a flap on the one side to go around the front of her chest and snaps close. The square part would then go over her back and could have ties to fasten it under her belly. She would be nice and toasty warm on those really cold days. You could make her booties too simple enough.

Anyway keep warm and keep well. This is the time that folks get really bad colds and such.
