Oh dear!!

You’ll have to excuse the image quality.  All of these were taken through the glass because there’s no way I’m going out there just to take a few pictures.  There’s a big winter storm buffeting the Island today.  The radio keeps going on about how cold it is but its really not that cold – maybe –6 or so for a low and up to close to zero during the day.

The forecast says we’ll have this crap until Saturday and then it will be back to lows above zero and highs in the 8 to 10 range.  Yesterday I offered our diver a ride to the airport.  I hope he doesn’t claim it.  If he does it will be because the Malahat is too awful to drive over.  We would take the boat to the customs dock at Van Isle and he would then take a 5 minute cab ride from there to the airport.  I’m sure once we got away from the dock we’d be just fine but it really isn’t a very nice day to go anywhere.  As we discovered on the weekend, we will need to bring our lines inside while we are travelling because if they are left outside its like trying to tie knots in tree twigs.

It will all be gone by Sunday. Saturday noon if we're lucky. And Terry must have found his own way to Sidney because he hasn't called. (we're not too upset about not going out today)
