Just happened to look at the stats today

Today I was looking at the stats of Gowganda Views, this gives the number of people and what country they hail from, as of today more than 90,000 views by readers that have dropped in for a look since the start of the blog in 2008.  Thank you for all your participation.
 This year, the cold has kept the amount of new blogs down but I have some plans when it warms up a bit and the wind finally slows down.  Today it has been very windy, snow blowing all over, even walking down for the mail with the wind was not too comfortable.  Here's a pic of the homestead today.

Waiting for the northern lites last week

Last Thursday and Friday were to be good nites to observe the Northern Lites,  it  fell a little short as the suns blast was not quite straight on to the earth where we are.  I was out and in Thursday waiting but no sign of the lites.  Here is a token picture taken out the back yard about 11:30pm, temperature was cold and skies partly cloudy.  After that I packed it in.  Apparently they did see some around 3:00 am.  Friday nite turned out to be cloudy.

Cold and more snow

Another couple of dumps of snow the last couple of days, yesterday just too cold to go out and clean it up.  Today better but not by much.  The summer chairs look so cool disappearing into the snow.  I know too much cold chills the brain.

Back to Gowganda yesterday afternoon

Great trip over the holidays, Worthington (west of Sudbury), Lindsay, Toronto, Peterboro, east of Parry Sound, and Huntsville. Lots of good food and catching up with everyone. Drove back from Huntsville yesterday the roads were dry and in good shape all the way home. 
 Not quite the same story this morning waking up to this....

Spent a few hours cleaning this up and it has snowed on and off the rest of the day too.  It's great to be back.
