Power, Food and Bears.
It has been an interesting couple of days. We were without power for 12 1/2 hours on Wednesday. I got the day of work but with no power no fun. The temp here is starting to fall with day time lows getting to almost -30. Lets forget about the wind chill. We got our first food mail delivery. We order food from a company in Quebec and they mail us the food. The freight is subsidized by the government so the weight only cost us about .80/lbs instead of about $5 plus (approx). Rumor has it there was a polar bear in the hamlet Wednesday morning in the RCValley but all of us on the hill didn't hear about it until this morning. The northern lights were out in force again and again we forgot to take pictures. Sorry next time. The sunrise today was at 10:00 am and sunset was at 2:00pm give or take a minute. Until next time have fun.
