A 7C temp, in fog and rain with a southerly draft this morning, temp to try and find double digits, but rain and wind will make it difficult to rise much. Similar conditions in the forecast for tomorrow, a couple of days of good weather then moisture for long-range, April showers taking a long-time to manifest themselves this year.

Fishery news remains fairly static, catch not too bad and prices remain where the fisherman can make a profit, however with t...

A better temp this morning at 6C, calm, hazy, a slight draft from SW, temp to make into double digits by this afternoon with an increase in the air flow. Rain for next couple of days, weekend appearing to be looking pretty nice, still temps reluctant to climb into the teens during the day.

Near high water at daylight, a large number of brant patrolling infront of the house, a first for this spring, numbers not masses that have been in the past, hopefully ...

Managed to get the last of the lengths of wood sawed to stove length, now to split and stack to complete the process. Doubtful if any residual wood to carry over till fall, a very small amount remains, seems everyday stove his lit for a few hours to ...

Calm, cloudy, temp barely on the plus side, told we will sun with clouds as the day moves along, temp to near double digits by this afternoon. Similar conditions till mid week, no great advances in the temp for daytime highs, warmer weather still not in the forecast for awhile yet.

Managed to get the woodpile down to a couple of hours of chunking the long sticks, and a bit split and stowed, will be a few hours getting the chore complete.
