First of all i want to say Happy new year to everyone....... I know i am a little late and it seems that my blogs are very sporadic, i wish i had a good excuse but all i can say is that work is very busy and when i get home i just don't have a lot of energy left and getting on the computer is not top of my list.
I have been so surprised at the weather here in Arviat, although it is colder than where we came from in southern Ontario, it is not as bad as i had thought it would be. I have been told that it is very unusual for it to be so mild. Today is only minus 17 c and it feels great, i would never have thought that i would say minus 17c is
We have had snow but not much although for all my friends down south i have posted some pics .
Weather update at 3:30 pm ......A Blizzard has hit and i cant see anything out of my window!!!
I will try to be a better blogger but i cant guarantee it.

Until next time
stay warm .

P.S. Sue, you owe me some

Yesterday and today were very exciting for Arviat, we had three polar bears roaming around the bay area, right behind our house. Yesterday a lone male was spotted and the whole town was watching as he wandered across the frozen water. This morning i got up at 6:30 and went outside and about 150 feet away was a mother and cub wandering along the dock area.
It was a good photo opportunity and i have posted some on here.
Hopefully they will leave soon so we can go out with molly the dog and not worry about being eaten.
until next time.
