Yesterday,December 23rd. I helped a friend move his Boat from Codroy Harbor to Port Aux Basques for the Winter Season. The weather was remarkable and even on deck there was really no need for warm clothes or gloves. The only Snow left is mostly on the higher elevations and the Long Range Mountains.

A spectacular Day! No winds and the Temp hovering around 0 Celsius. We got out for a short walk along the Seashore and saw a few Seabirds. Hopefully we get a few more days without the winds before 2010 starts.

This one is on the far West end of The Wreckhouse .

This one almost made it through the Gauntlet and went off the road sometime throughout the night do probably to high NW winds and whiteout conditions in our area the past 24 hours. I'm sure the consumers of goods here in the province picks up the tab on all those accidents we have here.

Still no Digital Warning Signage at the Wreckhouse 

Fierce winds blow truck off highway

Last Updated: Thursday, December 10, 2009 | 2:02 PM NT

Extremely high winds have prompted the RCMP to urge drivers, especially truckers, to stay off a section of the Trans-Canada Highway on the southwest coast of Newfoundland that is notorious for dangerous winds.CLICK FOR STORY LINK.

Today's accident happened at an area in the Wreckhouse region we call the "Starlight Mountain."

Once again luckily no one was hurt!

Avatar,looks like a Sci-Fi i just might like. Fox says it's the costliest film they have made but from the preview i suspect it will not be a Box Office failure. This just might end up being the highest grossing films in the history of Fox. So just click on the play button below for a preview. Or click here for a Trailer link.

RIP James.

We have been following the story of young James Delorey age 7 the past few days. James died last night at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax  after being found unconscious and suffering from hypothermia after wandering away from his home in Cape Breton.
 James was autistic and i do know a bit about it after working with some clients for two decades that has it. It's tough at times to work with an Autistic client but to be the parents of a child with Autism must really be quite the task at times. Some people with autism  can walk away, run away,or you can even say "escape" from a place even where they are well looked after. They do it without a reason and no clear understanding of what to really do next. It's just part of their behavior which can at times be unpredictable. A week ago we had an Autistic client in for surgery. When they took him into the O.R. area sedated a bit they told us to leave if we want because it would be several hours. We told the Operating Staff, no we could not. We asked them to come and tell us when he was sleeping and only then could we go. I don't think they really understood what could happen even in that situation. We have decades of experience with Autistic clients and we know from past experiences what can happen in just a few seconds. A lot of people might try and judge the parents unfairly in the case of young James Delorey and why he ran off but there are those of us who really know that this can happen at times and no one is to blame.
