3/26: We thought spring was here for good so down came the snow stakes on the road and other winter items. We have a group from Australia staying now (check out today actually); they had rented a car in Moncton that had snow tires. "Won't need those" I said. Then we got snowfalls on succeeding nights! No problem though - it's beautiful today and our guests are riding the OCEAN from Moncton to Québec (wish more guests would ride the train) and temps are on the way up. We might even be able to see the waterfall/fish pond in a few days...

3/21/11: Spring is officially here but we've still got about 1/3 of our snowpack to melt in the yard. It's -3C right now and there were snow flurries yesterday. A week ago, while the world was watching events unfold in Japan, the two hounds went to the vet for their annual vaccinations. Jie the Harrier (pronounced gee-eh; she was named after Chinese statesman Jiang Jieshi), celebrated by having a seizure at the doctor's, followed by incontinence. Fast forward- a week's worth of working with phenobarbitol dosages fixed the problem (lots of cleaning downstairs too).
Business is picking up with our Spring Promotion. Check it out on our new/old website: www.firedanceinn.ca and come by for a visit soon@

3/10/11: Spring has arrived! We're getting days of +32F temps and the snow is melting fast. Got out onto the deck for the first time since January today - the storm door had been completely blocked with snow. The West River ice broke but it refroze last night. The hounds' 3 meter snowbank has also melted. Reservations are moving along well, especially for our Spring Promotion. Check out our new website at our old URL - www.firedanceinn.ca - for details!! SS FIREDANCE will be coming out of inside storage next month for completion of its steam plant and shakedown operation. Stay tuned!!
