And while we'll have a limited presence over the next few days, should something of importance for the North Coast arrive requiring attention, we'll put down the short bread and Egg Nog for a bit to check things out and report back as required.
(Travel alerts and other notices of interest can be found in our North Coast Alerts section of the right hand column)
For our loyal and growing readership, the slower news period of the holidays offers a chance to catch up on some items you may have missed, the month by month archive can be found on the right hand column for those that may want to investigate items of interest over the holiday break.
As well, the search engine at the top left of the blog home page is a helpful way to find past items on any topic that may be something for further research.
We trust that most have been on the nice side of Santa's list for this year and the reward for that arrives under a tree later tonight. There will be one more item for review today, our annual tracking of Santa, which you can find here.
Until our return to regular blogging, Merry Christmas and all the Best for the Holiday Season we hope that all find time to take advantage of all that it has to offer.
