Overcast, wind WSW at 20-25KPH, forecast for gale force till at least tomorrow evening, temp 2C rising 6-8C then dropping back later on this afternoon. Longrange giving lots of wind, but clearing and colder for the weekend.

The 'red sky in the morning sailor take warning' weather statement true in spades yesterday. Snow mid afternoon, near blizzard conditions, during the evening rain, gale force gusts near 90KPH for the max. Ferry tied up for later schedule trips, don't know if weather or other considerations the reason.

The wind raised havoc with my GRISWOLD world, a couple of the snowmen appear to be decapitated, by time to turn in the bulk of the lights were out. Hopefully the lighting problem a result of the wind causing the plugs to come apart at a cruicial spot, lord knows there are plenty of opportunity for that to happen.

Oh, dear... that sounds really bad!!
Red sky in the morning "shepherds" take warning - is what we say here.
But luckily we still seem to be in a fairly mild stream... although the temperature today has fallen like a stone, from 53f at 1pm, to just above freezing 34F at 7pm:(
Hope you manage to put your display back together, without too much expense.

Dear Rob:

It is a TRUE Griswold Christmas. Just can't figure out why the 3000 lights will not light when plugged in. I spit milk all over the computer when I read of the decapitated snowmen. Hilarious. Major cleaning job in here now - Thanks! It was worth the laugh though.

The weather here last night was no better. Started snowing at 5:00 and by 7:00 we had heavy snow and wind to boot. Son went out and shovelled the drift from infront of car and some other stuff but was losing the battle.

All the rent a kids landed here at 11:00 p.m., thinking there would be no school today, and they all exited to Tim Hortons. Son came home at mid-night and started to shovel again. It was hailing by then. The long and short was that at least I didn't have to shovel for hours this a.m. The warmer front put a damper on some of the stuff anyway. ARG.

Decorating is almost done and then I move on to wrapping. Daughter is coming home on Sunday for the break. Her 19th birthday is also on Sunday so there will be double fold celebrating.

Moosehead Christmas party on Saturday night so I am going to be total toast by the time Monday hits. IT TIS THE SEASON OF NO SLEEP.

Anyway - good luck with finding the snowmen's heads. If not - put up sign that says 'THE HEADLESS SNOWMEN OF SLEEPY GRISWOLD HOLLOW'. WOOT!!!!!
