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





Good Morning Port Loring

So my lovely wife and I woke up to sunshine here this morning for a change. The snow has ended for now. We had another good six inches or so yesterday and through the night. Temperatures were a touch cool sitting at -13.7 C | 7.34 F We will see a few clouds throughout the day, but the sunshine should be with us now for the next four days. Which in turn should make things much nicer. Now folks can get out and about , maybe head off to town for some groceries and enjoy life as it should be. Highway 522 is still mostly snow covered, but the plow an sander have been through. If they did their job and put down some salt things should begin to improve. For me today I will once again start up the snow blower and get to cleaning the driveway. I have to say it sure has earned its keep this winter. It’s nice to have though, and makes short work of a hard job. It also gets me outside for some much needed exercise, and fresh air. On another note, there are a lot of snowmobiles going by this morning, so it looks like folks are out having fun. Good to see. With that I am heading off for my morning coffee. Have a great day! GW

Well I thought we might get away without more snow, by the way it was looking last night before retiring for the evening, but waking up that wasn’t the case. This morning snow is really coming down and I would guess we had another four inches or so already. Temperatures waking up was -0.9 C | 30.38 F The good part is it isn’t as cold. I talked to my friend in Michigan and he was telling me it was 43 F / 6 C. He said it was warm enough to wash his old truck. Which is something that I need to do also, but it will have to warm up a touch more yet before I do mine. Highway 522 is snow covered. The plow has been through but the Highway isn’t great for traveling. I would recommend staying home. My lovely wife and I did manage to clean out our driveway yesterday. There was a good foot or more throughout, and by the looks of things this morning we will have to do it again. But not until it is all finished snowing. My wife made some muffins yesterday, so I am thinking a nice perked cup of coffee will taste good with one or two for breakfast. Have a great day! GW

Well sun is shinning this morning which makes the day that much nicer. Temperatures cooled down some, it was sitting at -17.8 C | -0.04 F waking up. Highway 522 is partially bare, but lots of snow and ice covered areas. The plow has been through, but it will take awhile to melt things to where you can call it good. But there is more snow on the way they say. Snow will begin this afternoon and intensify this evening. Total snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 cm are possible before snow tapers off during the day Friday. Just what we need. Well I guess considering we are going to get some more I had better clean out the driveway of what we got yesterday. With that you have a great day, and I am heading off for my morning coffee with my lovely wife. GW

Good Morning

So the snow that they said we were going to get, didn’t occur in amounts. I would say in drifts we maybe have a foot or so, but otherwise around 6 inches. But more is in the forecast for this morning as we might get an additional 5 cm today. Easterly winds gusting up to 60 km/h may cause near zero visibility. It was quite windy at the time of this post. Temperatures waking up weren’t too cold sitting at -4.4 C | 24.08 F I think I will wait till tomorrow to clean the driveway, as we are suppose to see some sunshine then. That will make things more tolerable than trying to clean it out in all this wind an blowing snow. Highway 522 is snow covered, but the plows are going through every so often, keeping things opened up. All kinds of pick up trucks with plows on the front are also out this morning in full force, seeing if they can make a dollar. So I guess some good can come from a snow storm. With that I guess I will go feed my furnace with a couple logs, and then I will have a bite to eat that my lovely wife has prepared for me. Have a great day and stay warm. GW

Hmm, Hot Biscuits , Two-poached eggs and a simmering cup of fresh Perked coffee. Great way to start the day.
