News For Port Loring & District
Nothing much to report other than lots of snow. Not many cars or trucks moving around out there that’s for sure. Haven’t seen one go by our house here on Highway 522 all morning. Even the snow plow today is having a hard time in making an appearance. The snow is heavy though with lots of ice under it. So taking all them things into consideration folks, best if at all possible to curl up with a good book today and stay home. That’s what my lovely wife and I are going to do. For myself the first snow fall is the nicest and from any window in our home the view is fantastic. Nature can be beautiful my friends, if one allows it to enter our minds of what it wants us to see. Have a great day.
