TORBAY BIGHT STUDIO
On Friday, January 17, the day before the workshop, Newfoundland was struck by the biggest blizzard in decades. On the Friday night news, Eddie Sheerr, our local weatherman said that we should expect 75 cm (30 inches) of snow, 150 km (90 mph) winds and waves crashing on the beach 10 meters (30 feet) high. It was the waves that convinced us to put up some boards across the studio's picture window overlooking the ocean, and boy are we glad we did. The first time we could venture out to see the damage was Sunday and the end of the studio was covered with two inches of ice; there were stones on the snow in front of the window.
The January workshops will be rescheduled for some time in March when, hopefully, the weather will be a bit calmer.
