News For Port Loring Ontario

Well still pretty quiet around town.  Had some snow yesterday afternoon, around six inches to be exact. So driveway is in need of cleaning once again. So we will be able to get our exercise this morning shoveling it by hand.  Enjoy doing it actually, if it is light.  Gets us out so we can breath some of that fresh northern air into our lungs, along with soaking up a bit of that sunshine.  On another note, Karl has been working steadily on our LSB Weather for the Web Site.  He put an added feature which shows text data at the top of the weather page which updates on its own showing what the variables are every so often.  I would also like to say that we are very lucky to have Karl doing this for us.  As with out his expertise it wouldn’t have happened.  Not an easy chore to say the least.
