Good Morning. Well not to bad of a morning. Waking up temperatures were sitting at -10.2 C | 13.64 F.
Forecast For Today: Stormy, with snow. But we could see a glimmer of sunshine if luck materializes. Tonight though will get pretty cold down to -23 C / -9 F. Tomorrow will also be quite cold and remain cold. So if I might suggest. This would be the day to clean up any outside work.
Fishing Times: Today the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Then once again from 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM. I give it a 4 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Winds this morning are coming in from the North North East and at the moment it is calm. It will pick up quite a bit later on, which in turn should lighten up some of the branches of our huge pines. Amazing how much they can hold without breaking.
Highway Report: Highway 522 from Highway 11 in, has some icy sections with a bit of slushy snow here and there. From Highway 69 in there is quite a few snow covered areas along with some icy sections throughout. Care should be taken if out travelling.
Around Town: Not much on the go here today. I do have to clean the end of our driveway out a touch, where the snowplough so nicely piled some for me. But other than that not so bad. Will give me some exercise at the least, along with some fresh air. I did bring in a touch more firewood for this new wood furnace of ours, in speculation of it getting colder. A bit extra on hand is always nice to have on hand. I also got a small electric log splitter for Christmas and have it in the firewood room. I have to say I am in love again. Sure makes short work out of the large pieces. Not that I mind burning them but with this new furnace the large ones aren’t needed anymore, as one large one split, lasts twice as long now. Also with low ceilings one can’t get a good swing using an axe, so there is a safety factor there also. Now when going down to feed the furnace it is a pleasure. Kind of look forward to it. So guess I will head on off to the kitchen as my lovely wife has a tea ready for me. Do some chattin’ as we both are really good at that. Solve the problems of the world and see where the day brings us. Enjoy your day my friends, stay safe and warm. You can reach me George Walters at [email protected]
