For the last day of 2019 we are having some light flurries here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Overnight we had around 1 inch. It’s not enough that I have to wake up my snowblower though. Which is okay with me. Not that I don’t mind the exercise now and then. Highway 522 is partially covered with snow along with icy sections throughout. Might be a good day to stay home and put your feet up. That’s what we intend to do today. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -0.6 C | 30.92 F. We could see around 3 inches of snow as the day progresses, and temperatures will remain the same for most of the day. Actually the long range forecast is pretty good temperature wise. On another note my lovely wife and I had a great Christmas with our son Karl. Got lots of new things added to my computers, and the new Podcast is up and running around the globe. Can’t beat that. Actually we have had so many people listening to my Podcasts, it crashed my Blog, so Karl had to update it so it could handle the traffic. It should be okay now. That makes me smile. So with that I am off for my morning cup of perked coffee and will enjoy the last day of 2019. And along with that …. Happy New Years to you all. GW
I would like to let you all know of a new Chapter in my life, George Walters.
I have written and published many books about Truth, Fact, Fiction, History, Fantasy, Self Help, Health, Comedy, and the list goes on and on. But it seemed, that something was missing.
So … over the past couple years with the help of my family and others, we have put together an Audio Podcast show. It will cover different aspects of all my stories that I have written over the years.
As being the author myself, I will now be able to tell the story as I wrote them, bringing out the true feelings and purpose, that I want the story to portray
I will also be doing a Podcast on different topics occasionally, and along with that, maybe a guest from time to time … which I think will keep things interesting.
The Podcast is called … Just One More Story by George Walters. All my Podcasts as they are produced can now be found on:
Google Play Music:
Google Home: Just Say, Hey Google! … Play Just One More Story by George Walters.
And More will be added as time goes by.
It has been a long journey preparing the show with challenges popping up daily. But with the help of my sons Karl and Craig, along with my lovely wife Ruth, using their expertise, it is now reality. Without them it wouldn’t have been possible. With that, I hope you all Enjoy ... Just One More Story, with me, George Walters.
Episode 2: This is a true story that took place while I was growing up on the farm.
First episode of my new podcast. Just One More Story by George Walters. Christmas 1955.
Another pretty nice day here for us in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures have cooled down a wee bit sitting at -6.1 C | 21.02 F. It will warm up some as the day progresses. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning which will make travelling good. We didn’t have any more snow overnight. A lot has melted, with maybe two inches here and there covering the ground. Other than that not much else happening these days. Quiet around town with a lot of folks heading off to the sunny south to get away from the cold for a month or so and others relaxing in their warm homes. With that my wife and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Don’t eat too much turkey tomorrow. LOL
It’s another nice looking day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning, warm temperatures, 3.5 C | 38.3 F and the snow is melting. Can’t beat that. It’s so nice outside I think I will wash our car. I have to admit after our last trip to town it doesn’t look too good. Be good to get all the salt and grime off it. And it will give me some fresh air and exercise doing it. Highway 522 is bare and dry so travelling will be perfect today. Makes things a lot nicer for folks heading off to family and friends for Christmas. One less thing to get stressed out about, as at this time of year most are. For my wife and I we are settling in and will just take Christmas as it is handed to us. Family and friends are dropping by what could be better. On the good side of the coin with this warm weather we don’t need the wood furnace burning away. The oil furnace is keeping things nice. It’s nice having both. Yesterday my lovely wife made up some cookies, brownies and today is pie day. I don’t think we will be lacking this year in the sweet department. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. GW
It looks like a really nice day is shaping up for us here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The sun is shinning and temperatures are warming up. Waking up they were sitting at 0 C | 32 F. It will warm up more as the day progresses. Which in turn should get rid of a bit of this snow. Highway 522 is bare and dry. It will be a great day to head off to town to do that last minute shopping for Christmas. For us we are all set and my wife is in Cookie Mode today. Nothing like Christmas cookies to make this feller happy. Especially the kind with the sprinkles on top. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a good day.
A cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. But we should see some sunshine as the day progresses. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -8.6 C | 16.52 F. On a good note temperatures will warm up quite a bit as the day moves forward and even warmer tomorrow. Actually things are shaping up to be a great Christmas weather wise, other than maybe cloudy on Christmas Day. Highway 522 is bare and dry which is a good thing, as folks can make their way to the cities to do their shopping. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will then see about cleaning my furnace pipes. I like to do that at Christmas, as then I know it will be good till spring. They aren’t usually’t too bad, but this gives me ease of mind so to speak. I am burning some nice dry hardwood which makes things nice. Have a great day. GW
Another cold morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures waking up were sitting a -22.2 C | -7.96 F. Looking outside, the smoke is slowly curling up out of the chimneys, which is a sign of just how cold it is. But it isn’t as cold as it was yesterday. We didn’t have any more snow last night. Which is okay by me. On the good side of things the sun is starting to show itself. Highway 522 is bare and dry for most parts, so it will be a good day for folks to head on off to town to do their Christmas shopping. My wife and I went on Wednesday, which turned out to be a great day, other than being a touch cool. But we were able to get everything done, and along with that we had lunch with our son Karl. The roads were good too. The stores were really busy with folks standing in lines at the checkouts. Parking lots at the Mall in North Bay by Walmart were all full. The groceries stores weren’t too busy, but I suspect they will be now, with Christmas being so close. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and put another couple pieces of wood in the furnace. Have a great day and dress warm if going outside, but you all know that. Right? LOL
