Good Morning: Well this morning temperatures were sitting at -14.9 C | 5.18 F. Not as cold which is OK by me. I am ready for spring.
Forecast For Today: Stormy with some snow. It will become very cold later on this afternoon and through the night.
Road Report. Highway 522 is covered with hard packed snow and ice throughout. Care should be taken if travelling.
Snow Report. About 1 inch has fallen from yesterday to this this morning. Nothing much new happening there.. Still lots of snow though for the snowmobiles. In total I would say we have close to 2 feet in some areas.
Ice Fishing: Today the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM. Then again a bit later on from 2:00 PM – 4:45 PM. I give it a 3 fish rating out of 5 for catching them this morning and a 4 fish rating out of 5 this afternoon. Good Luck!
Around Town: Quiet here for a Saturday morning. My wife and I was away for a week visiting our son in St Catharines Ontario. They have almost the same amount of snow as we do. Getting out of bed down there looking out the window I thought I was back home here in Port Loring. But had a good time. Took in the new Bass Pro Shop the built just on the other side of the canal. Amazing place to say the least. I spent a half a day browsing around and still didn’t see it all. Will be heading back there next time down you can bet on that. So heading off for a dandelion tea and will see where the day takes us. Great day to just take things easy. Stay safe. You can reach George Walters at; [email protected]
