A cool -1C, wind from NE to be gale force by this afternoon. Rain this evening strong winds till late tomorrow along with damp conditions. Warming up for the weekend.

The shoppers returning on 1:30PM trip rather than this evening, appears a wise choice as they should be home before the effect of the high winds kick in. According to accounts the trip was good 'preliminary' getting ready for Christmas needs.

The seemingly endless campagain for the U.S. President concluded, for the moment, with a victory for the incumbent, OBAMA.

Dear Rob:

It is freezing here - actually probably not but considering what we are used to - it feels like Alaska. Seriously, I think it is -2 and the wind is picking up as we speak. Appears tomorrow will be our highest winds - according to the G.M. weather - at 45 knots. That will be a bit of a blow. Thank God it will be warmer. Not sure if that will be of any comfort to those down yonder that still have no power. Friend in Rd. Isl. has power restored, finally, and that would be thanks to a crew from N.B. that our NB POWER sent down to help. Canadian power crews are used to that type of damages so probably moved right along.

I raked leaves again yesterday in preparation for today, but seriously, as the neighbours are not as diligent, I think it is an exercise in futility. Oh well, wind direction will determine how much I have to do on Friday.

Remember I had mentioned to you - however long ago - that the longer Sarah was at the University, the shorter got the messages home (that would be first year). Second year I little more communication, third - ditto, and by the fourth she couldn't wait to come home and just relax in the zone. Funny they are all the same.

Suppose Lil Rob is all ramped up to go out on first day. I know you both went last year and were exhausted for your efforts. Good luck if you are doing it again this year.

Well, lots to do, don't want to do any of it. :0 Batten down, as you said to David, and say a prayer for the folks of New England.

Word. Chunks.

Mornin David, appears you should have another day ashore, blowing NE, picking up all the time. Gale force in the forecast by this afternoon, seems to be right on schedule.
Opening day looking warm and windy then cool and less weather by the end of next week. Still a bit far out, however one always considers the worst weather the norm in these situations.

Price at $2.50 not an encouraging statement, you seem
resolved to the fact it is what it is, and time to think about next year. Your statement about having the decision makers spend some time on the stern appropiate for any of these guys on either side of the border.

Your election process done till the new wannabes come on the scene. Folks on this side of the border seem to believe the choice is correct, Canadians generally more liberal in political leanings, historically speaking and relate more to Democratics than Republicans.

Batten down, southerlies by the weekend.

ROB

Mornin CHUNKS, can imagine Gerald would be mortified if he thought he had to be the guest of honour at a funtion. You are correct just a passing acknowledgement and a crib game works best for him. Still quite a milestone, 90 years, and enjoying fairly good health, especially with some of the health history he has endured.
Donna should be enroute to Calais by this time, the idea to get an earliar trip home a good decision wind slowly picking up as the morning unfolds, they do no profess to be seasoned sailors.
Haven't spoken with Emily to learn if she is planning on visiting this weekend or not, she has mentioned felt she should come home for a day or so, will have to wait till Donna is back, they have a level of communicaiton that I am not party to.

Stay warm.

ROB
