Good morning. Well really nice day waking up here in Port Loring. Temperatures are sitting at…13.3 C | 55.94 F. Will warm up and be quite pleasant all day.
Forecast For Today: Fairly fine, possible showers early.
Bug Report: Things are looking good in this department. A few mosquitoes, horse and deerflies around along with no-see flies.
Fishing Times: This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best time to be out there will be from 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM. Then a bit later from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM and one more time from 5:00 – 7:15 PM. So lots of time to catch a few for supper. I give it a 3 fish rating out of 4 for catching them.
In The News: Went to town yesterday as had to stop by Ford for them to check our new vehicle over. Got a shuttle to the North Bay Mall and wife and I had lunch there while waiting for our car to be fixed up. While there met quite a few folks, that read my columns. Always nice to chat to folks. Also seen Jim from our landfill here in Port Loring and we chatted for a bit. Found out his wife was in the hospital. My wife and I would like to wish her a speedy recovery. Nothing worse than being laid up with health related problems. On another note I did notice that they fixed up Lakeshore Drive in North Bay to where it is drivable once again. There were so many pot holes that I dreaded driving on it. Lot nicer now. Also noticed they are working on Castle Street near Food Basic. Have to say it needed it too. Lot of needed work finally being done in and around the Bay. Good to see. I noticed lots of shoppers out an about picking up items of choice. Mall was full along with Wall-mart. Independent grocery store now is back in full swing with folks finally realizing what Wall-mart was doing. Great to see that some folks can’t be fooled. Later on visited our son Karl, and went out for supper. He even bought, how about that? Great fellow and we are quite proud of him. So…thinking a tea is in order here now this morning and will then see where the day brings us. Enjoy your day my friends. GW
