Morning report January 18/2020

It’s not as cold waking up here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures at the time of this post were sitting at -12 C | 10.4 F. A lot warmer than yesterday morning, that’s for sure. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight, but it looks like we are going to get some later on this morning, into tonight, and tomorrow. If we get what is predicted the amounts could rise another 8 inches or so. But we will have to wait and see how that goes. Highway 522 is bare a the moment, but that can change quickly, so if out and about later on today care should be taken. Myself I will be taking it easy today. My lovely wife is doing the wash and I will be working on my podcasts. It’s a lot of work preparing them, but it’s something I enjoy doing. On another note my wife and I went to North Bay yesterday to pick up some groceries. Met some friends from our area while there and a few that enjoy my columns. Nice to stop an chat to them. We also met our son and had lunch with him. He had set up my new cell phone and while eating he showed me how to work things. Nice phone with a good plan too. Not cheap though, but that is the price you pay for quality these days, or so they say. We are lucky our sons are so talented when it comes to these things that’s for sure. Especially in this day and age. After lunch he went back to work and we carried on with our business at hand. Groceries are up there in price this year, but there are deals if you seek them out. I have found though that veggies and fruit are terrible quality this year, some shouldn’t be on the shelves for sale. When I was selling produce from our farm, it they looked like the things that they are selling today, I would have throw them out. Fruit mouldy, lettuce disgraceful, not a good scene. The worst part is no flavour at all. And the thing is, we have all these so called laws that suppose to make the food that is being sold … better. Some of these laws are a joke and truth be known, has put many a great farmer out of business. Anyways … enough of my ranting here this morning LOL I am off for my cup of coffee and will see what mischief I can get into. Have a great day. GW
