TCC for 5/27/10
"New" 2007 post follows below.
The Caretaker is officially on hiatus from his blog until at least the end of this week but most likely through the end of next week. However, he will still have the e-mails from 2007 posted every night at 9 p.m. EST, they will be going out via the automated system. If the Caretaker happens to take some photos and has the time to post them he will do so. For those readers who have relied on the Caretaker's notifications of new posts via Facebook, while he is on hiatus from his blog he will not be sending out notifications via Facebook for the automated posts from 2007. If you'd like, you can sign up for e-mail notifications by entering your e-mail address at left, it is titled: "To receive E-mail notification of new posts:" It is just below the Caretaker's brief profile.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Island Ice Report for 3/15/07:
Outside temp: 32 F
Ghetto temp: 50 F
Wind: East, sustained winds of 20 mph, gusting to 35/40
Sky: Didn't notice, and with a wind chill of about -10F I'm not going out to look.
This isn't really a report, the Caretaker still has much to do before he can turn in and part of what he has to do is outside and he is not looking forward to it, but the other option is to wait until tomorrow when the wind is forecast to blow even stronger with the chance of snow. The ice is from 12 to 18 inches thick, there was a truck out on the main part of the Lake on Monday between Dome Island and the East shore, so the ice is plenty safe, but the "heat wave" of these past few days caused a substantial amount of water to collect on the surface, because of this the x-c skiing was more like water skiing than snow skiing, amusing but not so good for keeping the feet dry. Anyway, tomorrow the Caretaker has very little planned for off Island so he will most certainly be able to get to all the questions from this past week. There hasn't been much in the way of "good photos" these past few days due to the rain, fog, and dense cloud cover, so the attached photo is from a week or two ago.
