Since the holidays the temperatures have been extremely cold up here (wind chills in the -50'c) but what should I expect we live in the Arctic. This is my third winter up here and the one thing I noticed this year is that we have less snow than any other year that I have experienced. I could be like a bear, curl up in a fetal position and hibernate for the winter but that would mean about 9 months out of the year. Instead, today with -51'c wind chills I headed out with my camera and the dogs. All of us dressed warm but we still only latest about 1/2 an hour, including the Nikon.
Yesterday was the first day that the sun rose in 6 weeks for 1 hour, 6 minutes and 3 seconds...not that I'm counting. It came up at 11:36 this morning and in a blink of an eye it was gone at 12:42pm. Before you know it the sun will be up for 24 hours and we will be quadding and fishing everywhere.
A week ago Hannah and I were invited to the elementary school to do dog prevention presentations for all the grades except the grade 2 students. We are hoping to return this coming Friday to finish the other classes. Hannah is such an old pro and of course everyone loves her. I had one grade 3 student that was very scared of dogs and sat at the teacher's desk during the presentation but I did notice that she was smiling and laughing at one point. If Hannah and I can reach one student in each class to raise awareness and to help prevent dog bites then I think we have done our job.
Craig and I have been spending some quality time with friends since our return to CamBay. Last weekend we had a much overdue games night at our place and yesterday we went over to the Thompson's as they just returned a week ago. The last time we seen them was at Siesta Key beach in Florida. Tonight Craig is jamming with the boys and I have some quality time with...my blog and the remote.
