Spent most of my Friday shovelling and blowing drifted snow, after a couple of weeks of temperatures as low as -40c, Windy and snowing right now, a balmy -6c. But the Family Day ice fishing derby went well.

So after -40c a day sitting on a stool, on ice, with your rod dangling into a cold lake must be feel quite warm🙃

Is this on a massive frozen lake with lots of people Vic?

Oh! I don't go fishing now the kids are gone, just go and look, Two local lakes, most regulars have tents or huts, even caravans, parked all winter on the ice. No floors in the tents or huts, seats, heaters etc,  beer coolers not necessary! drive your truck or car anywhere you think the fish might bight.

When the kids were kids we had snowmobiles,  we'd  travel through mountains, find a lake and drill hole and fish half the day. No computers or video games in the days.

Family day February 15th, families go for the day, no fishing license needed, lots of prizes for sizes, age groups etc, but Covid rules kind of dampened it a bit. Photo is regular day not Family day.

About -20 here until last week then up to -10 but more snow. It's been hard work this week. We also have a big problem with drifting living on a hill where the wind swirls the snow around quite a lot. The one flat roof on the premises began to sag so it was one on the roof throwing it down and one shovelling at ground level. My shoulders were beggared after a couple of hours as it was too wet and heavy for the blower. It's definitely getting a new roof this summer - of the pointed variety!

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
