Frobisher Bay overflow water on the ice

First ship is due to arrive July 1 and I can hardly wait, the pictures in this gallery are making me incredibly jealous, maybe I'll bring the snowboard. People are still out snowmobiling because the ice is still very thick (1.3M). Beautiful weather now with highs around 10C.

Compare that with the Shetland Isles - almost as far North - 61 instead of 62degrees and yet weather forecast for end of week shows sunny and 18C!!!

Well after weeks on end of rain were finally getting some hot sunny weather. It was close to 30 degrees today. This place is into extremes, with winter temps hitting -40C and summer temps hitting up to +40 C. Sure does wonders for the roads.

Yeah no kidding I was in Winnipeg in September and December last year the roads were brutal, I would never drive a motorcycle there, I'm actually going to UofM in Sept. and buying a Chev Silverado 2500HD I'm afraid the wheels would be ripped off a car. I could not survive in temps like that +40C I have become so accustomed to the moderate temps of the arctic last summer our hottest day was 22.5C in July and I was running for cover and practically overheating. 15C is perfect for me and -40C is awesome. Im bringing my seal fur mitts.

LOL When our roads aren't being torn to shreds by Heavy snow removal equipment they are undergoing major reconstruction. Either way your weaving around heavy equipment year round.

Get ahold of me when you get here & we'll do some boating. No shortage of water around here, but it 's only available as unsalted.

Absolutely! Sounds great. It will be a big change actually being able to swim in the water and not being terrified of falling in with the greenlandic sharks and 60' bowhead whales Those are some excellent photgraphs you posted by the way. Nature photography is so much fun

Arctic RIB, Did you take those pics yourself? Very impressive!

Roads here on the Rock are pretty sh1t too. We dont get the extremes of temperature but we do get rapid and frequent freeze/thaw cycles. And of course the province is too bloody poor to actually spend money on road maintenance. Maybe the $2 billion Danny got for the Atlantic Accord might help but I doubt it.

We could have a Canadian RIB.netters get together but its a bit more of a travel issue than for the folks in the UK. (I rather suspect I'm closer to UK here in Newfoundland than Winnipeg!)
