Chillaxin' in Iqaluit

Sunday, October 26, 2008
Our PI conference ended earlier this evening. And what a weekend it was. Tons of information to bring back to my community ... and even some new twists that 90% of us were not aware of (like filling out the proper leave forms). I can only imagine the amount of photocopying I am going to have to do when I get back to Arctic Bay to get ready for the passing on of the knowledge.

The weather down here in Iqaluit has been pretty schizophrenic as well. Yesterday, it warmed right up into the plus side of the temperature and all of the snow and ice on the roads was gone - it was beautiful out! Great walking weather - wet, but great. Today ... well... it started out ok ... a little dank, but the forecast didn't seem to bad. Then around 10:15 when we had our nutrition break, the snow started .... and didn't end until much much later on in the night (like 7:00pm). It was pretty nasty with visibility being practically zero. Many flights out were canceled due to the weather. Now, at almost 11:00pm, the sky is clear, the fog has lifted, and with any luck this weather will hold and I will be able to return to Arctic Bay tomorrow.

Now, i am just sitting back relaxing after a wonderful supper of homemade chili prepared by our co-ordinator and staring at the candy apple I got at the Northmart ... yummy - this will be sooo good on Halloween :-) (my little treat to me since I can't eat any of the candy I'm handing out to the kids ... that would just be wrong ... right??)

Sampling the candy your going to hand out is not wrong! It's oh so right, you need to test to make sure it's of good quality for the kids. A chef always tastes her creations! lol
