HERE IS ANOTHER UNUSUAL SUN RISE PICTURE……. 

THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE MUCH HAPPENING UP HERE NORTH OF 57…….

EVERYONE IS BUSY DOING WHATEVER THEY NEED TO DO TO GET PAST WINTER…… BELIEVE ME……  EVEN THE OUTDOOR SNOW ENTHUSIASTS ARE MORE THAN TIRED OF THIS LONG HARD WINTER…… 

IT HAS BEEN WARMER THAN USUAL THIS PAST MONTH AND THAT IS GOOD FOR US…… BUT…… THE DRILLERS AND SURVEYORS WILL BE SHUTTING DOWN EARLY THIS YEAR……

 THEY CAN ONLY GET IN TO THE MUSKEG DURING THE VERY COLD WINTER WEATHER…… DRILLER TEAMS SHUTTING DOWN EARLY COULD POSSIBLY CREATE A SLOW  DOWN IN THE EXPANSION OF THE LONG LAKE REFINERY SITE WHERE WE WORK…..

WE CAN ONLY HOPE THAT THE DRILLERS GOT ENOUGH DONE SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE WORKING……

THE DRILLERS ALSO LOST A LOT OF TIME IN DECEMBER BECAUSE IT WAS JUST TOO COLD FOR THEM TO WORK…… THEY DON’T GET MUCH DONE WHEN IT IS -46C (-51F) OR COLDER……..

SOME NEW RABBITS HAVE MOVED IN TO TAKE THE PLACE OF THE ONES WE LOST TO THE COYOTES……

IT WILL TAKE THEM A WHILE TO GET USED TO US…… AT THIS POINT THEY ARE STILL VERY TIMID…..

IT’S -14C (7F) AND A LITTLE CLOUDY……. YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……..
