Good and Bad Weather

Great weather today and yesterday. Went and got the baby yesterday. He spent a week up to Eagle River with his Nan and Pop. Mom and Dad were sad to see him go. He had a great time up there. He was outdoors a lot walking all over the place and sliding.We had a storm not long ago, a lot of snow came down. This was followed by two really good days (today and yesterday)and tomorrow we will get rain and after that it will get quite cold. The temperature is supposed to get up to plus 2 or 3 and later on in the evening it will drop to minus 22. Very erratic weather. A sign of global warming I guess.

There was a polar bear in the community of Black Tickle/Domino Feb 17/09. He attacked someones dog shaking it in his mouth and followed someone up onto their bridge being promptly hit on the head with a shovel. The resident then grabbed his gun and shot the bear to drive it away. The bear was not killed. Wildlife and DFO officials flew up to see if the bear could be saved or be put down but as of today they have been unable to locate the animal. He was last seen on his way over to nearby Spotted Island.

The following is an excerpt from one of my journals

Aug 23/06

Went out to Cape North and Gready this afternoon to see if we could get any fish. Still never got any. I got 3 rock cods and a sculpin and ***** got a herring. Passed **** Martin and ****** Dyson on the way in just past the Sisters. A few thunder showers on the way out and in. We stopped at Cape North for a while.
