Good Morning: Well not to bad a day temperatures wise. Waking up it was sitting at; -13.4 C | 7.88 F.
Forecast For Today: Snow, very unsettled.
Snow Report. Through the night we had another 2 – three inches of light snow. In total slowly getting close to 2 feet in some areas.
Road Report. Highway 522 coming in from Highway 11 is pretty well bare and dry, but it does have some hard packed snow sections. Coming in from Highway 69 it is pretty well covered with hard packed snow throughout. Care should be taken if out and about but travelling should be OK.
Ice Fishing Times: Today the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from; 12:00 PM – 3:30 PM. I give it a 4 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Should have fish for supper. Good Luck!
Around Town: Well our Winterfest is in the works starting today. Scroll down to one of my former posts for all the times and information of what is taking place. Should make for a fun weekend. Yesterday we took a drive to North Bay to visit our son Karl. Also picked up some groceries and things which we were in need of. Had a great time and a nice meal out too. Good to get away now and then. I have noticed over the past few months more organic items are becoming more popular. Which is fantastic. The more that folks buy in Organic, the cheaper they will become. For years the Powers that be said that the world is growing so fast they couldn’t do with out all the chemicals or GMO that they use on and in our veggies and things. It was a necessity. Well that is now proven to be not true. Being a farmer I have fought most my life to eliminate all the pesticides and things as my father before me. I am not blaming these folks as in reality they just didn’t know any better. With the new generation now coming into the picture things have been changing and will change even more. Reason being is that they, the younger ones can’t be fooled. They know what is going on and now they are demanding things change to a more healthy state. Which is a great thing. So again remember, this is my opinion only. In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You Well. You can reach George Walters at; [email protected]
