2/22/11: Things are hopping on the Island; the nationwide curling tournament is in session in Charlottetown. We've got a nice family from Ontario occupying much of the inn - three generations. The weather decided to celebrate with a few days of snow; the drift in the hounds' yard is 3 metres deep! Ye got the Jetta stuck in a drift, this afternoon's project will be to dig it out. The wind isn't helping things either but such is life. There's still time for our signature dishes, though; here are Wei's famous blueberry pancakes:

This is starting to look as if we're in position for a record snow year. The waterfall is just a snow mountain right now. We've got trough heaters in the pond for the fish so they're OK; the hard part is trying to find the pond! As heating oil was fairly low cost in 2010 we didn't stock up on firewood to activate our wood/coal central heating system; the wood we do have is essentially frozen in a solid block! Hope we get a thaw soon for the snow on the deck and roof...
