Oct 23-Nov 06, 2008

Wind, Wind go away. It has been rainy and windy for the last two weeks. We did have a couple of days that were sunny, but they were still windy which made it cold. I guess winter is officially here!! George and I went to Campbell River on the 28 and came back on the 29th. It was an uneventful crossing even though we got back just before dark.

George has been working on the barge and pumping water to the cistern. The well is overflowing, and our cistern is now full, along with the spare tank behind the generator shed. We have had to start the propane heater in our bedroom as it is quite chilly these days. Can't wait for the furnace that we want to buy. It will make it soo much warmer and also save on propane.

There is a wind warning out today, with winds gusting up to 50 knots which is 92 kmh. Now that is STRONG. Yesterday we went on the mail run with Doug again and had a very nice visit with Jenny at the Post Office. We stopped at Len's to look at some piles that he has. Now we only have to get a pile driver.

I have been trying to get the potatoes and carrots out of the garden, but the weather is not cooperating. We do however still have flowers growing in the flower beds.
