Just saying hi so save myself from the cleanup :)
Notes on the council meeting of Oktober 4th AD 1646
The Grimgerghens have completed their house extension and have started to redesign the older part in the new style. Furthermore a new house was build by the bay to allow the newly wedded  Haywardo Haynes and Katarin Mersey to live closer to their bayside occupations. This includes the gathering of sand so that the Colony may start producing glass once construction on the glassworks has been finalized.
Consuelle Germain has paid her 7 years of indenture to the Grimberghen family in full and is by contract and council verdict now a free planter and shall be granted a house and land near the bay

The spur of growth in the colony has severely reduced our log stockpiles and we are hard pressed not to cut down the surrounding forests to keep ourselves warm in the winter. We will have to look further out for the procurement of the near limitless supplies of wood.
A decree has been made to survey the surrounding land for the purpose of a future burger wood.
In March of this year we welcomed the 5th child of Humbert and Adalia Haynes, Izabel.

Govenor’s log of December 20th AD 1646
A special council meeting was called for and promptly gathered on this day.
An Indian trader came by our port; said to be from the Glowhill tribe. While we had no great use for the meat he was selling, of a fine a quality as they might be, we obliged him nonetheless. The council decrees hereby the construction of a tentative trading post for more lucrative goods at the bay street to accommodate trade with the savages.

Gov. Z. Glowbrenn


Notes on the Council meeting of Septemer 11th AD 1647
Darney Mersey was born to Zecharia and Loycely Mersey this april. Landy Haynes was born on a rainy day in June. Analiana Amalia Grimberghen was born a nights ago to Myrone and Winifreda.
A courier from the Harfort colony, more news from the civil war in Britain it seems that our benefactor King Charles has all but lost the war as his army was soundly beaten at the Battle of Naseby nearly a year ago.
It was thusly decreed to prioritize construction of the common house for the sheltering of any such Royalists which would choose to flee prosecution by the Roundheads.

Passing travelers from the Breukelen colony informed us of the death of Frederick Henry in the Netherlands, they had been successful in diminishing the Spanish rule over their country and he has been succeeded by his son, William II. The Grimberghens are skeptical this will end the war, but there is hope.

Notes on the Council meeting on November 18th AD 1648
Giann Glowbrenn was born in February of this year, being the 5th child and 3rd daughter to Zachery and Anasta.
During the warm month of June Consuelle Germain and Mathen Mersey where married. Two months later their daughter Errold Germain was born (Mathen has been largely disowned by Zacheria Mersey) they will move into Consuelle’s Bay Street home after its completion.
In hopes to alleviate the colonies’ constant lack of wood and in prospect of making a trade out of surplus logs and in accordance to the decree of 1646, the glade West of Haynestown has been decreed as a logging area, thence to be known as Westerwood, and the construction of a foresters lodge has been commenced.
In early May a ragged vagabond calling himself Marceli approached Loycelyne at the docks. He offered the town 33 kegs of mead, a most welcome spirit in the cold winters in these parts, which we traded for 23 leather skins. He also had sacks of Turkish Coffee, which we declined upon.

Notes on the Council meeting of September 28th AD 1649
As of this date , as per decree and in accordance with the Foundation of 1639, this council has elected Zecharia Mersey to be the Govenor of the Haynestown Colony.
This February the new Garmain residence was completed on the Bay street, while construction on other new housings and the glassworks still continues. The Westerwood forestry was completed in May of this year and Princes Haynes, having had years of experience at the lumberyard as well as with the tending to plants, has taken charge of the proceedings.
In June Hershelby Mersey and Kamerica Chaarason were betrothed and Tomas Grimberghen was born to Myrone and Winifreda, being their 6th child and 5th daughter. In September, the girl Brean Glowbrenn was born, the first child of Edgardner and Loycelyne.
A French trader by the name of Brion ported in from whom we traded some fine fashionable suits and some sturdy canvas cloaks for 56 of our combed wool. Most of us have been walking around in nothing but rags and sacks for many years now. This novelty prompted the general public to demand accommodations in this matter and it is thusly that this council decrees the construction of a tailor to be commenced once the forester and glassworks have been completed.

This March marked the decennial of our colony, and as such, the Council was given to reflection.
While we have seen a steady and prosperous growth in this time, it was deemed that we had been too secluded. Our community is hardly known outside of the neighboring settlements. It is thusly, with the continued growth and influx of new blood in mind, that the ruling Council has decreed the building of a Town Hall, which will serve the people of the community in providing a court of Law. Furthermore, it is to strengthen the bonds with both the Kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland as well as the Dutch Republic, as to promote the coming of new colonists.
Thus we agree, decree and sing upon,

Governor Zecheriah Mersey and the ruling Counsil of Haynestown being, Humbert Haynes, Zachery Glowbrenn, Dandro Grimberghen, Salvah Chaarason

The cat wanted to go out all day, but when I'd open the door, he would look out and turn around and go back to his warm bed.
Our family had cat many years a go. Cat act exactly like that when about -20 celsius. Sometimes i just throw the cat out to cold for a chill little while, because she become so nervous and crazy if the cold last too many days. About twenty minutes cat came back inside. When i remember all this i miss my cat.

The worst of the storm missed us here in southeast Wisconsin, we only got 4 to 5 inches of fluffy snow but did have some blowing and drifting.  The last storm missed us entirely.  So far this month we've had some near 40F temps so this single digit days and zero and below nights will seem really cold.   :)  I shoveled sidewalk and path to birdfeeder today, will be too cold tomorrow.  :)  Clear sky now so hopefully at least it will be sunny.  Have a good day.  :)

:) We have winter storm warning issued here now and will be followed by frigid cold, sorry but it is headed your way.  I think it was meant for you, I am just in the way.  ;D ;D ;D

Here in Southern Ontario we caught the northern edge of your storm--just 5 or 6 centimeters (2ish inches in US measures) but it is windy and on its way down to -17 C (about 0 F) by tomorrow. Since this Winter has so far been up and down around freezing with rain, snow or freezing rain on and off, this is a shock to the system. The cat wanted to go out all day, but when I'd open the door, he would look out and turn around and go back to his warm bed. At least this snow is colder and lighter than what we have been getting. I hate shoveling wet and heavy snow. Since it is still snowing, I'll put off shoveling until tomorrow morning.
