It got down to -17 last night and finally we are starting to see some ice formation along the banks of the St-Lawrence river. Yesterday and today gatherings of Canada Geese started to arrive and build into rafts on the open water and it will only be a day or two at most before they have finally left us and the river freezes over completely.

Tomorrow is the annual CBC in the Hudson area – we are hoping for Snow Buntings and Snowy owls on our sector.
