Well, one of the beauties of living in the north is that the weather actually does effect your life inside and out. We have just come out of a 48 hour milizzard (not a blizzard but still miserable!). I was without T.V. and internet for entirely too long (no t.v and no internet make Jen go something, something, crazy? Don't MIND if I DO)! It all started the other night when I noticed that it looked like someone had thrown a slurppy on my front porch, then it got really cold and the slurrpy froze. Now I am in constant fear of breaking a hip, there isn't a enough salt to melt the amount of dangerous ice outside! There was also snow and high winds that shook my house. That's finished, my internet is back but there is still much too much ice. And I have to use a lighter, along with my house key when I want to get into my house. I guess some of the slurppy got into my lock and now that it's frozen I need to heat up my key for any lock turning action to happen. How does one fix this problem ultimately? As I am only temporally melting the ice inside the lock to get it to turn? Then it freezes again and I have to repeat the process? Do I shove a piece of paper towel into the lock to absorb the moisture after I heat it up?
Nathan's home tomorrow!! I can't wait!! Not only for him, but so he can fix the T.V, I think the dish was blown out of alignment. Also in a week my brother will be up visiting from Ottawa. I can't wait for him to finally see where I live as he is a large city lifer, who I know will get a shock from being up here. And I do love to shock him, that's what sisters are for. A week after he leaves, Nathan's sister is up. She is a seasoned visitor to Nunavut, so no shock value there, just looking forward to visiting! I am hoping that it snows enough to get the snow mobile out for her visit, but all the weather gods seem to want to do these days is to make unpractical ice! Who needs that?
Speaking of Ice, check this out, I got one of my photos published in the Nunavut News North paper, front page too! It's the picture of the three boys running on ice. SO go get your copy TODAY folks!
P.S I was forced to change my hair style again because of few northern bloggers guessed my "top secret profession". And it's almost Halloween so I needed to have black hair.
