The First Month

Here we are, it's been a month since I left the bright lights of Calgary and arrived under the ever increasing brightness of the northern sun. I have met a lot of great people and have been fortunate to make two new best friends: meet Mr. Tinfoil and Mr. Windpants.

According to Environment Canada, the sun rose at 3:26 am today. A couple of days ago, I wouldn't have had to check a website to tell you that. I would have woken up startled to a bright room thinking it 10 am, making me late for work, only to discover that it was only 4am. But no more! Thanks to my new friend, my room is free from any outside light and I can once more sleep soundly. As an added bonus, spy satellites have no luck over my house muahaha!

And what about my other new friend? Let's just say that I think that windpants may be the greatest invention in the World. Rain or shine, the wind is your constant companion up here and these pants do a great job of blocking it all out. And being a partial klutz, I no longer worry about spills on my pants, just hose me off!

Whew, this blogging thing is hard!

Hard but you should keep doing it. I'm kinda jealous that you're up there.

Has anyone told Iqaluit that their airport looks like a pelican case?
