Random pics

This is the road from Pouch Cove to St. John's, took this while driving the other day.

The next town south of us, Flatrock, took a little detour through there on my way home.

Out the studio window yesterday. Rough seas.

Here's the neighbor's pick-up truck collection again; much nicer now that its buried:)

Went cross country skiing down the main road this morning before the plow went through.

Snowed in

This is looking up the main road, its cleared just enough for one car but the only things on the road today are snowmobiles. Past the church isn't cleared at all. My house is up the hill from the church.

Looking down the road.

This is the neighbor's pick-up truck collection.

Last night we had 100km/hour winds with about 30 cm of snow. The snow has stopped coming down for the time being but the winds are still at it. Luckily my car is clear, the house makes a good wind block. The roads are not clear; even St. John's is all shut today.

Day in the life

frozen pipe in our house burst, g goes down to fix it in the tiny crawlspace under the house, he's working away when beside him in the dark he sees a dead cat. yes. this cat has been there longer than we've been in the house; quite a bit longer. that explains the smell in the entryway to the house. i thought it was the beer bottles.
later, he gets the pipes fixed, i turn the main valve to turn the water back on ... nothing. we call in the local plumber who confirms the valve needs to be replaced but the town needs to turn the water off at the curb in order to do it.
great, i say, lets go to the town office.
wait, says the plumber, everyone in the town office is already at the party at the club. we'll have to wait till tomorrow.
of course, what was i thinking? its four o'clock in the afternoon.

ah, small town life:)
