Good Morning Folks: Well not as cold here in Port Loring this morning. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -22.2 C | -7.96 F. Didn’t have any significant snow fall through the night.
Forecast For Today: Unsettled, probably improving as the day moves forward.
Highway Report: Highway 522 is packed with hard snow pretty well from Highway 11 to Highway 69. There is quite a few icy sections so care should be taken.
Fishing Report: Well ice should be pretty good for ice fishing in some places with all these cold temperatures. Others where the water runs fast care should be taken. Today the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 7:30 AM – 9:00 AM. Then again a bit later from 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM. I give it a two fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck and stay safe.
Around Town: My wife and I took a drive to North Bay yesterday for a few supplies and things. Roads were quite slippery but nothing that our Ford couldn’t handle with ease. Love that 4 wheel drive. We stopped at some friends for an hour or so who lives way back in where the snowploughs doesn’t travel that often. But again the Ford Edge out did itself in some pretty drastic conditions. I was amazed. In town it was quite busy, even though the roads weren’t that good. Stores were packed, folks were buying, even the restaurants were lined up. We had to wait for a half hour at Swiss Chalet for a table. But it was worth it, as the meal we had with our son Karl was great. I like their chicken pot pies. Comes with a nice salad and a roll. Price was reasonable at around $10.00 Even better for wife & I as our son Karl paid the bill at the end of the day. Even had a nice Chocolate Sunday for desert. I highly recommend you try one if you are feeling like a treat. You won’t be disappointed. Had a great day with our son, got our supplies with other items of choice and got back home safe. Can’t get much better than that. So my friends you all have a great day. Keep warm. You can reach me George Walters if you so wish at [email protected]
