As Bas Jamesion used to say... “And a good, good morning to you.”
It’s another damp one.
At the St. John’s International Airport its 9 degrees, with light rain and fog.
It’s enough to make you want to hop on a plane and heady somewhere nice and warm
I know, we’re not supposed to complain, especially after the super summer we had, but...
Anyway, since we’re talking weather, here’s what Environment Canada says is in store for today and the Thanksgiving weekend...

Periods of drizzle or rain ending near noon then cloudy. Fog patches dissipating this morning. Wind northeast 20 km/h. High 12.

Cloudy with 60 percent chance of drizzle. Fog patches developing overnight. Low 8.

Mainly cloudy. 60 percent chance of drizzle in the morning. Fog patches dissipating in the morning. High 14.

Cloudy. Low 10. High 18.

Periods of rain. Low 14. High 18.

St. John’s IceCaps defenceman Dean Arsene (right) chats with a teammate during a breather at the team’s training camp in Corner Brook this week. The veteran —who has a pair of Calder Cups with the Hershey Bears to his credit — isn’t expected to add any scoring punch to the IceCaps this season, rather coaches expect him to play a big part in keeping opponents from getting on the scoresheet. — Photo by Robin Short/The Telegram

More on Operation Impact...
The Burin Peninsula District RCMP would like to introduce Operation Impact 2012, a national program, which is an initiative designed to increase the public's compliance with safe driving measures and to save lives. Police will be targeting behaviors that increase risk for drivers, passengers and other road users. Police seek to increase the public's ability to drive alert, sober, using seatbelts and without distractions such as using handheld cellphones. Operation Impact will occur throughout the Peninsula, between the 5th and the 8th of October, 2012. The Burin Peninsula District RCMP continue to work with the public in providing safer roads in our communities. The public's assistance is essential, in keeping communities safe and are encouraged to report possible impaired drivers and persons operating in an unsafe manner, by calling the RCMP at (709) 279-3001.

The Telegram wants to know...

How safe do you feel?

When criminal beahaviour hits close to home, people tend to feel the amount of crime is on the rise, even if statistically that’s not always the case. Of course, there are also crimes that go unreported.

The Telegram wants to know how you feel about crime where you live, whether it's drinking and driving, break-ins, vandalism, assault, or any other crime. Do you feel safe in your neighbourhood or community?

Take a couple of minutes complete our Crime Survey. You don’t have to give your name, but we'd like to know how you feel about a topic that has the potential to touch us all.

Anyone in the province can complete the survey, but please do so only once. We will tabulate the results for 30 days and then report our findings back to you.

You can find our survey HERE, and you are welcome to expand upon the questionaire in the comments section below. Friends on mobile devices can fill out the survey HERE. Thanks for taking part.
