Good Morning: Well waking up this morning it wasn’t quite as cold as yesterday. Temperatures were sitting at -9.4 C | 15.08 F.
Forecast For Today: There is no warnings up to speak of but, if data serves me right we could see some nasty weather move into Port Loring & District. As of now there is a huge storm moving into the Niagara area. Could be rain, could be ice or it could be snow. Depends on how the temperatures fluctuate throughout the day. Same goes for us here in Port Loring. At any rate extra care should be taken if out driving a bit later on today.
Fishing Times: This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 6:00 AM – 8:30 AM. Then once again a bit later on from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM. I give it a 4 fish rating out of 5 this morning and a 3 fish rating out of 5 this afternoon for catching a few.
Highway Report: As of now Highway 522 is bare for most parts coming in from Highway 11 but it does have some snow covered areas here and there. Coming in from Highway 69 there is lots of icy sections and and some snow covered areas. Again.. care should be taken if out and about.
Around Town: Not much happening here in Port Loring these days. Think folks are hibernating like the bears. In some respects can’t say I blame them. But one does need fresh air and getting outside now and then will do ones body a world of good. Myself I get quite a bit of exercise shovelling the driveway, as if at all possible, I try and do it by hand. Gets the old adrenalin moving through ones veins. On another note I see Gas Prices took a huge drop over the holidays. Was a great treat for those travelling here and there. Yesterday in North Bay at the Esso you could get it for 82 cents a litre. I suspect it will remain there for awhile too by the looks of things. No reason in my eyes it shouldn’t be even lower. Not in our country where most of it comes from. All about money. So my friends enjoy your day, stay safe and try and get outside for a bit, your body will thank you for it. You can reach me George Walters if you so wish at [email protected]
