Happenings In & Around Town

Good Morning:  Warmed up a touch through the night.   One though would still need a shirt on going outside with temperatures waking up sitting at -15.9 C | 3.38 F.  But a lot better than that minus 30 stuff.

Forecast For Today.  Starting off we will see s bit of sunshine and then we will see snow with some very unsettled weather.  Kind of think it was due as my driveway is all cleaned out now.

Highway Report:  Highway 522 is covered with hard packed snow along with some icy sections throughout.  Travelling should be fair early this morning.

Ice Fishing Times:  This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 7:30 AM – 9:45 AM.  Then once again from 2:30 PM – 4:45 PM.  I give it a 4 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few.  Should be a good day for putting fish in the frying pan come supper.  Good Luck!

Around Town:  Here in Port Loring not much is happening in the way of things.  I see gas prices are still down, which in my mind is where they should be.  Only thing that isn’t down is furnace oil, or at least in our neck of the woods. Oh it is down some, but no change since late summer of last year.  Kind of makes a fellow wonder what is going on in that department.  The old trend was, that we live so far back in that we had to pay extra for the trucking and things to get products brought in to us.  Today though that isn’t really an issue as most companies have their route set up and if your on it, your on it.  Also over the past few years there has been a lot of folks raising their prices on other items saying it was because of the gas prices being so high.  Do you think now they will drop their prices back to where it once was?  I suspect not, as once the price has been initiated it is there to stay. So what can we do?  Shop around my friends and don’t be afraid to let folks know your feelings.  At the very least, you are entitled to that.    My opinion only.  You can reach George Walters if you so wish at; g[email protected]
