This entry is short, I did not take notes!
Wake up at 0715. Try several times to run the generator but it will not handle the coffee maker. After it is done brewing I shut the maker down and put the coffee in an airpot. Then the generator runs fine.
It is snowing and the island is white again. There are three seals way up high, quite near the house, and they are fighting with each other. One bounds off and the other two tuck in against the rocks, now hidden from view. We take care not to flush them as we move around the outside of the house.
Today is day two of the rock olympics. The event is paper airplane and snowball toss from the lighthouse tower. Initially it was going to be a distance event, but we changed it to a target event. At game time everyone hummed the Olympic theme song and I threw a buoy off of the tower. The object was to get your plane and snowball as close to the buoy. The planes were all custom design. Becca had the closest plane toss, then Tanya, Kerry, Kathy, and myself. None of the planes really flew great, and Kathy’s floated around like a feather for a very long time. For the snowball round we all got fairly close. I hit Kerry in the foot as he stood next to the buoy and recorded a 1-foot distance. Tanya won the overall event, with Becca secnod, Kerry third, myself fourth, and Kathy last. Tomorrow is curling on an ice patch on the south side.
We have pizza for dinner using homemade dough that Tanya puts together.
Bed by 2200.
