Good Morning: Well a touch cool waking up here in Port Loring. Temperatures were sitting at -17.7 C | 0.14 F.
Forecast For Today: Changeable, mending. More snow on the way for tomorrow.
Ice Fishing Times: This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 7:45 AM – 11:30 AM. Then once again a bit later on from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM. I give it a 5 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Great day to be out there. Good Luck!
Highway Report: Highway 522 is covered with hard packed snow, ploughs have been through, but there are some icy sections that one should keep an eye out for. Other than that it will be a great day for travelling.
Around Town: Very quiet around town. Folks are taking life easy. At least for those that are still here, as a lot have moved on to the sunny south for a few months. Can’t say I blame them. The only hold back would be the dollar being so low. But the bright side is that the gas prices are much lower than last year and the trip down to say Florida and back, would cost next to nothing. So one should still make out pretty good. Also a lot of places I see are taking Canadian money at par which is a great attraction for those thinking of getting away. Motels along the way are quite reasonable with prices ranging from $40.00 a night to $75.00 a night. Not to bad if you consider what they are here in Canada and that most comes with a continental breakfast. One just has to seek them out. So my friends I have always said this. If you have the funds why not bring a little pleasure to your life and make things happen. My wife and I do when ever we can. Life is short. Enjoy your day my friends, stay safe and warm and try and get out and breath in some of that fresh Northern air, or…warm Florida air. Do you a world of good.
