Good Morning Port Loring

Well what can I say., other than it is a bitter cold morning. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -29.2 C | -20.56 F This kind of weather makes a fellow want to stay in bed. But the wood furnace needs to be fed now and then. I did plug the car in early this morning so it should be warming up some if we decide to go somewhere. I am thinking next year I will buy a battery blanket that you can plug in as with this weather being so cold it takes a toll on it. Just an added feature that will save some money down the road I am thinking. Highway 522 is bare and dry but that will change later on tonight as they are calling for 1-3″ of snow. But on the bright side it is sunny this morning not that it is throwing off much heat. But it does make things more tolerable. With that have a great day and stay warm. GW

To start things off it isn’t quite as cold as it was yesterday. Waking up temperatures were sitting at -16.3 C | 2.66 F Highway 522 is bare with a few icy sections but all and all pretty good. The sun is shinning once again which makes things more bearable. The long range looks pretty good with sun most days, with maybe an inch of snow on Wednesday. But then back to sunshine on Thursday. Not much to report this morning so with that I will go have some breakfast. Have a great day. GW

French Toast with yogurt in-between, covered with fresh blueberries.  And of course a game of Crib with my lovely wife.  Great way to start the day!

Last Fridays Storm Pictures

I took a couple pictures of the storm we just had a couple days ago. Makes me yearn for spring. But on the other side of the coin the snowmobiles are happy. I was talking to a few at the gas station yesterday and they were all smiles. I have to admit they have come a long way with new machines these days. Some I wouldn’t hesitate to say would cost in the thousands. Not to forget the clothes and helmets they have today too. It’s not like it was years ago when you went out and were half froze when you got back home. Anyways they are having fun and that is all that really matters in life. Have a great day. GW

Good Morning Port Loring

Hmm. I see it is a might cool waking up this morning. Temperatures getting out from under the sheets were sitting at -26.8 C | -16.24 F I had to push myself a wee bit to give up them nice warm covers. But the wood furnace needed another log so what’s to be is to be. The windows are ice covered which is another sign it is a touch cool. But on the bright side the sun is shinning this morning. With the sun shinning on the trees making the ice crystals glisten, and the mist in the air over the lakes, it sure is a pretty sight to see. Highway 522 is pretty well bare in town here. I would think it would be a fair day in a bit for traveling, if your in need of a few things in North Bay. My lovely wife and I did manage to get our driveway and decks cleaned up yesterday. I have to admit there was a lot of snow. In some places it was over 12 inches deep. But the snowblower made things easier. It’s a good blower one of the last ones Sears made I guess before their retreat from Canada. I had an older one which lasted me over thirty years. I don’t suspect this one will last that long, as they sure don’t make them like they used to. Some things are better like throwing the snow further, which is a plus, but for heavy duty cables and things the new ones aren’t as good. Not much you can do about it. With that I guess I will go and bug my lovely wife a bit and see what she has on the menu for breakfast. Have a great day and stay warm.

Nice Place to Eat

So my lovely wife, my son Karl and I decided to go out for lunch the other day for my sons Birthday. Had a great night truth be told, and a great meal. We decided to try Lot 88 Steakhouse & Bar in North Bay. Which turned out to be quite good. I would recommend it to anyone that likes a great steak. The nice thing about it is that they serve it on a Laval rock so you can take your time and cook it to your perfection. That is what my son and my wife had, I had one of their famous Burgers and a tossed salad. It was fantastic also. We finished our meal with a nice bottle of Beringer White Zinfandel Wine slightly chilled. Then for desert we had a piece of Cheese cake with a drizzle of Chocolate. Life can’t get much better than that! GW
