Gulf Island Building.


We had a visit yesterday afternoon from one of the families from the other side of the island and they brought the entire brood over. I guess there were 8 or 9 of them. One was a friend who has been in the building game for many years.

They got over kind of late in the day so we were just chatting outside. They were heading out when the builder just had to stay for a few more minutes and ask questions. Next time he gets over I have promised him a trip through the house - big smile when I said that! I'm looking forward to it, he's quite the character.

Tried to take a few pics of the frost outside, most weren't much good. This one shows the smog coming from the mill up near Nanaimo. You can't usually see that much of it, as they use scrubbers on the exhaust. But it looks like today that the cold air (still below 0) is condensing the exhaust.

The smoke trail would be about 8 - 10 miles long.

That would be your 'dug' well???

I sure hope this is the coldest that the new year's weather will be bringing, but it is only around minus 25 C, so I suspect we'll be in for worse over the next month or so. No outside work for a couple of weeks for me.

Actually, that would be the "hot" tub. Hohohoho.

I have been chatting with a friend up in Kamloops - it's cool there alright - but not as nippy as where you are.

The winter cold swings seem to run about 6 weeks behind the shortest day, much as the summer warm swings are 6 weeks after June 21st. Takes mother nature awhile to bring things into line I guess.

Happy New Year jl.

Keith, loved your ..'sunset' shots of the 'blood' red sky, I have equal from 'sunrise' from my deck, with my new 'Xmas' Digi camera, but will have to wait to learn how to post to site! Drove ..'way' up back in the snow country yesterday, behind here, with 15 people and 4x4s, and when we got stuck..made Tobaggan and 'carpet' runs for kids, had many 'hot' drinks and snacks around a big fire, and watched the crystal clear panorama from Texada, South to Baker, and Beyond...a 'Sterling" visual, and because of the approx 5000 foot height, an overall view! Had some 'fun', getting out of the snow back to mountain road, but everything was Good! Amazing when you get back not very far, there is no one, and,...beauty!!
Cheers

That's one big difference between your place and ours.

No sunrise whatsoever here, way too many trees. But the sunsets are just fine. Glad to see you made it out OK!

Just got an email from my pal Randy over in Nanaimo. He took a pic of the New Year's day sunset and submitted it to the weather network.

Well, it seems they liked it so much they put it up on their website.

I couldn't resist telling him I liked ours better (we kid each other all the time), but here's the link to his pic.

That's a pretty picture. You guys get the best sunsets.

I also like the one next to it of the airplanes in Nanaimo Inner Harbor, with the ship and mountains in the background.

But can you tell that the person who titled the picture isn't Canadian?
