warm December, no snow for Santa

A high pressure ridge over Greenland has been blocking the passage of low pressure systems from crossing the Atlantic and is ruining our December. Very mild weather with fog and rain is what we are getting. It has been warmer here in Newfoundland than in Orlando Florida the past few days. I was bitten by a mosquito at work today. We should be tracking moose and hares in the snow. The warm weather extends up into the eastern arctic. Yesterday Iqaluit on Baffin Island was warmer than Havana Cuba. We don't get really cold here on the island but we generally get a great deal of snow. I have new back country skis. Hope to use them soon.

Sam seems to be on the mend so all is not lost. He is still not 100% but he seems pretty good.
French Heartworm may be the culprit. It is not the same heartworm that is found on the continental US but something unique to Europe and maritime Canada.
Fingers crossed here.
I hope to be grouse hunting Christmas week and a cousin asked me to guide him moose hunting. He hasn't been big game hunting before so needs a hand. Looking forward to Christmas week.
