Good Morning! Starting things off, the sun is shinning here in Port Loring, Ontario, this morning. I have to admit, it sure looks pretty out there, with the sun, and all the snow we have had for the past two days. The branches on the trees are just hanging with so much snow on them. The temperature this morning is a touch cool sitting at -13.3 C | 8.06 F, It will warm up some as the day moves forward. Also, it should be noted that by the weekend, we will have some more snow, not too much just a couple inches. But the good news is on Sunday it could reach as high as 40 Degrees Fahrenheit. We might even get in some front porch sittin’ Highway 522 is snow covered with lots of icy sections throughout. So care will have to be taken if out and about. On another note yesterday we stayed inside for most of the day, other than walking to the shop to feed my stove. If nothing else it gave me some exercise along with some fresh northern air. I have to say we sure had our share of snow the past two days. I would say around another 8 to 10 inches. More in certain locations. Like up in front of my woodworking shop. It seems to pile up there more than anywhere else. This morning after breakfast we will get busy and clean things up. I suspect it will take most of the morning, and maybe a bit of the afternoon, with their being so much. Kerry my friend who is cleaning my driveway is running out of places to put the snow. I would say it is the most we have had in the past 16 years. Not complaining mind ya, as we knew moving here years ago what to expect. Of course, we were younger than we are now LOL. With that I am off for a bowl of oatmeal with my lovely wife and will then get to work. I can hear my snowblower calling me, raring to get to work. Have a great day and stay safe this new variant is closing in on everyone. GW

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy snowy day here in Port Loring, Ontario this morning. The snow will continue off and on for most of the day. Tomorrow the sun will show itself once again, and if we are lucky it should remain with us until Saturday, when we can expect more snow. So winter is keeping its grip, so to speak, on us here in the North. But the good news is, we are closing in on March … which means, spring isn’t that far off. I am thinking everyone will be looking forward to summer this year. On another note … the temperature is pretty nice these days with it sitting at -3.3 C | 26.06 F this morning. It will rise a wee bit. Highway 522 is snow covered with icy sections throughout this morning and I suspect it will remain that way until tomorrow. Understandable. Yesterday I worked on a Podcast and today will be much the same. With the weather being not so good, I enjoy being in the house working away here on my computer, bugging my lovely wife. She has been busy doing housework, along with working on a painting she has in mind. It’s nice to be able to do what you enjoy. We both don’t get to watching the news much these days, as there is so much garbage on there, that all it does when reading it, is upset a person. So have been getting on with our lives and enjoying each day for what it is. Along with bugging our boys occasionally. LOL That’s what parents do right? With that, have a great day. You’re the only one that can do that. And stay safe!!

Good Morning! It’s another snowy day here in Port Loring, Ontario. The snow started yesterday morning, and continued on throughout the day. We had around six inches or so yesterday. Through the night there wasn’t any to speak of, but this morning it has started again. So I will wait till it has it out of its system before cleaning things up. However, the temperature has been a lot warmer for the past couple days sitting a-1 C | 30.2 F this morning. Highway 522 is snow covered with a lot of icy sections throughout. So care should be taken if out and about. Yesterday I stayed inside most of the day, only going out to put some wood in my shop stove. I probably will do the same today. With that I am off for my morning bowl of cereal with my lovely wife, and will then work away on another podcast. Take care and stay safe. GW

Good Morning! How’s everyone doing this morning? Good I hope. It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario. And I suspect it will remain that way for most of the day. If we are lucky we might see a glimpse of sunshine off and on. We will also be getting some more snow starting later on today, and for most of the day tomorrow. We could see up to six inches or more. It all depends on which way the storm tracks. But … we are in an area that if anyone gets it … we do. LOL Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, pretty well throughout. We are having some light flurries right now. On another note, yesterday I took it upon myself and washed our car. I couldn’t stand looking at the poor thing, sitting there covered with ice and salt. It is Kodiak Brown, but you wouldn’t have known it. Actually it was quite nice out there washing it, with the sun shinning. So in doing so I got some fresh air, exercise, along with a clean car. What can be better than that? Today I will continue working on a podcast that I have on the go. Which should keep me busy for most of the day. First though, I will light the shop stove, and wheel in a couple loads of pine softwood. I use it for the shop stove, as I have lots. That way it is warm in there. I like to keep it going on the real cold days, and when I know a snow storm is headin’ our way. That way once I finish cleaning up things, my snow blower gets dried off. Keeps it from rusting. With that I am off for a bowl of cereal with my lovely wife, and will then get to work. Finally, for a change the good news is that the sun is getting higher in the sky. Which means … warmer weather will soon push into our area. I could feel the warmth from it yesterday while washing our car. Felt good too! Take care and stay safe. GW
