Morning Report January 31/2020

It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. But if things goes to plan we should see a wee bit of sunshine as the day progresses. On the good side of the coin temperatures will warm up some today. At the time of this post they were sitting at -7.4 C | 18.68 F a touch cool but not so bad. Highway 522 is bare and dry throughout which will make travelling good. No snow overnight but, we could see a bit of snow later on this afternoon and into tonight. On my bird feeder report, about the only ones visiting these days are the blue jays and morning doves along with some little guys. The strange thing is we have seen Robins now for the past two weeks. Actually we seen one Robin sitting in the tree by our store on the first day of January. Kind of tells me that things are changing with our climate. I think too with the earth shifting a bit each year, it might mess up the birds fight patterns. Anyways … I am off for my morning cup of coffee and put a piece of wood in the wood furnace. When the wood furnace is going you would think your in Florida its so warm. Nice to have though, especially in this country. Have a good day. GW

Morning Report January 30/2020

Cool morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at -13.5 C | 7.7 F. The good news is the sun is shinning for a change. It should continue for most of the day. There was no snow overnight which makes me smile. Highway 522 is bare and dry throughout which will make travelling good. With these cooler temperatures I have lit my wood furnace once again which is doing it’s job nicely. It always amazes me just how nice wood heat feels. I can have my oil furnace perking away, which is nice too, but when the wood heat starts the old body seems to like it just that much more. With that I am off to put another piece of wood in the furnace and then will enjoy a cup of coffee. That first cup of the day sure tastes good. Don’t you think? That is if you like coffee. There are a lot of good properties in coffee, in moderation of course. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report January 29/2020

It’s a cloudy day waking up in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We should be seeing lots of sunshine later on today and into tomorrow. No snow overnight so cleaning the driveway won’t be necessary. But … I do have to clean a pile that fell in front of my shop door off my roof. Other than that things are looking good with no snow in the forecast for the next few days. We will get some cool nights but the daytime temperatures for the remainder of the winter will be well above normal. So that is good thing as it will help folks with their heating bills a lot. Highway 522 is bare and dry so travelling will be good for the next few days. One of them days we will head on into town for some items we are in need of. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then let the day do what it wants. Have a great day and stay warm. Sometimes just a chill can take a toll on a person. GW

Morning Report January 28/2020

Well seems like a norm for us here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It’s another cloudy day. Temperatures cooled down somewhat sitting at -5.4 C | 22.28 F. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. The good news is, we could see a wee bit of sunshine later on today, and tomorrow it should be out in full force. Just what we need to help with the sickness that some folks have at the moment. Lets hope it don’t get worse with what is going on in other countries. I have a notion it might before it gets better. I hope my intuition is wrong this time. Highway 522 is bare and dry for most parts, but there are some icy sections throughout, so care should be taken. But in saying that it should be a good day if your in need of some groceries. Today I will be working around the house here on some projects I have going. With that you all have a good day. Oh! And if out and about in stores it might pay to take extra care and wash your hands more often, and don’t touch your face. Maybe even pick up a bottle of that hand disinfectant and use it when ever you go into a business, pump gas, or go to the washrooms, using a credit card machine and especially after using a shopping cart. Thought I would mention it. And stay away from anyone that is coughing. Best to think ahead I have found.

Morning Report January 27/2020

Lots of clouds this morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It will remain this way for most of the day. Temperatures have cooled down a wee bit. They were sitting at -2.8 C | 26.96 F getting out of bed. They will continue to fall for the next few days. So it will be back to burning wood for a while. On another note we didn’t have anymore snow overnight which is fine with me. Highway 522 is bare and damp throughout so travelling will be good. Actually after today we should see some sunshine for a few days. That will be nice and we humans are in need of some. Keeps us healthy. Or at the very least helps us stay healthy. It’s also a good idea to pull up a chair in front of a window when the sun is out, that is if it is too cold to go out. You loose a wee bit of it’s properties, but there is still lots your body takes in. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store. Every day is like opening a Christmas present. You never know what it might bring. Have a great day. GW

Good Morning. Another cloudy morning here for Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It’s been that way for the past week almost. Yesterday I got tied up with some other things ,so that is the reason for not doing my Morning Report. But there wasn’t much to tell other than for most of the day we dealt with showers. Temperatures yesterday were quite warm which in turn melted a lot of our snow. Over night we had about an inch more of the white stuff, but nothing to write home about. Today temperatures are sitting at 0.4 C | 32.72 F. If we are lucky maybe it will melt that snow we had last night. So far this winter we have been pretty lucky in staying away from the really cold weather. I kind of think the trend will carry on for the remainder. Oh we might get a cool night but other than that I think our days will be pretty good. Highway 522 looks bare but there are icy sections throughout so care should be taken.. Today I will be working away on some stories for my Podcast, along with my columns and things in the News Papers and Magazines. They should keep me occupied for most of the day. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will let the day unfold around me. Have a good one. GW

Morning Report January 24/2020

Cloudy morning once again for us in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. And by the looks of it the clouds will remain with us all day and into tomorrow. Temperatures though are pretty nice sitting at -1.7 C | 28.94 F. It will warm up even more as the day progresses. We do have some warnings up for our area stating we might get some freezing rain later on today and through this evening. So if that happens travelling won’t be that good. Myself I don’t mind some snow but ice is another story. It doesn’t matter how good of a driver you are problems can occur driving on icy roads. Best to just stay home and wait it out. At the moment Highway 522 is bare and dry throughout which will change later on today. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight which is okay with me. On the good side of the coin we aren’t burning as much wood with these warmer temperatures or oil. Makes me smile. So with that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife and will get to doing some things around the house here. Have a good day.

Morning Report January 23/2020

Another cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We didn’t have any more snow overnight and temperatures stayed quite warm. Waking up they were sitting at -1.8 C | 28.76 F. It will warm up even more as the day moves forward. Things could start to melt a bit too. We also could see a bit of snow later on today and into tonight, but I don’t suspect we will get too much. But as I always say in this neck of the woods anything is possible. Highway 522 is bare throughout this morning, and it should be a pretty good day for travelling. So if some groceries are in order I would think this is the day to do it. Today I will be working away on some more Podcasts as I like to get enough done up for summer. When it gets nice I don’t want to be sitting in front of no computer. LOL But it is nice in the winter … keeps me active. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day.
