April 2010:

April was dreary. No sea ice, no icebergs, instead we got lots of rain, drizzle and fog. The uncertainty about our future here in Newfoundland was also a bit depressing.

May 2010:

May was truly the start of spring this year, plenty of sunshine, budding flowers, and a few clear nights for stargazing too. Still no icebergs near the Avalon though.

August 2010 – Outer Cove

For me, August was the month I waited for capelin to roll into Middle Cove, in vain. The highlights of the month: humpbacks, finbacks, dolphins, porpoises and of course the killer whales.

October 2010:

October brought fall colours to the parks and streets of old St. John’s and to the wind swept barrens along the East Coast Trail. Trout are still putting on a show, jumping up the waterfalls in the local rivers.

December 2010:

December was warm, wet and dreary, then suddenly crystal clear for two days during the annual Geminids meteor shower, then damp and drizzly again. The cause: an abnormal disturbance in the jet stream, making our Newfoundland snow fall all over Europe instead.
