Careful in those B.C. mountains. Apparently weather conditions have created avalanche conditions more treacherous than usual. Tragically two back country skiers were killed in Fernie, BC this past weekend.

Other than that, have a nice trip.

Here in Penetanguishene, Ontario we are gearing up for Winter Fest this weekend. Yes, they will be cutting a hole in the two foot think ice on the bay and some foolish people will be jumping in to celebrate the season. I think I will be able to force myself not to participate!

Less bone chilling activities will include an ice carving contest and a lumberjack competition.
