Good morning. Well it’s not too bad of a morning other than being a touch cool, with temperatures sitting at -15.9 C | 3.38 F. But for us heat really isn’t an issue with us using the wood furnace. But in saying that wood heat does have its drawbacks as we all know. I actually don’t know how much longer I will be using it to heat with. I am slowly edging my way towards other avenues so to speak. We will see how it goes. Highway 522 is partially covered this morning with some icy sections throughout. But that is understandable, with all the snow we had the last two days. But it won’t last long, as temperatures will rise after tomorrow above the melting point. We didn’t have any more snow overnight. On another note my wife and I did manage to clean out our driveway yesterday. Seems every year things are getting a touch harder to do. But we both are getting up there in years. The main thing is, we have to learn our limits of what we can and cannot do. That’s where things gets interesting ha ha. Anyways, life is good for most parts, so not complaining. Have a great day. GW
Good morning. Well … it’s a cold morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at -15.5 C | 4.1 F. It will warm up a wee bit as the day moves forward. But not much. Then on Sunday things will start to change for the good with temperatures rising above the freezing mark, and the long range after that is looking good. Highway 522 is snow covered this morning and I suspect will remain that way for most of the day. Travelling won’t be the greatest. The sun is trying to come out at the moment but I think for most parts, it will remain mostly cloudy for the rest of the day. On another note, our wood furnace is doing its job for the past day or so. I usually don’t use it if the temperatures are up near the thawing point, but when its cold as it is now, it sure feels good. The heat it throws off takes the cold right out of the body. With that, I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then if it warms up a bit will see about cleaning our driveway. Have a great day.
Episode: 11 Today I have two stories for you to listen to. One was a touch short … so you might say, I enhanced it a touch. I hope you enjoy One Candy Stick.
We are back to winter here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Over night we had close to 6 inches or so. It is still coming down and will continue throughout the day. We could see another 6 to 10 inches by tonight. Highway 522 is snow covered with some icy sections throughout. Not a good day for travelling and distance. Temperatures have cooled down also sitting at -11.7 C | 10.94 F. It will get a bit colder as the day progresses and even colder tonight. So with them temperatures I am off to light up my wood furnace and then have my morning cup of coffee. Today I will remain in the house here and relax a bit. Have a great day and if out stay safe. GW
It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures are a touch cool sitting at -10.6 C | 12.92 F. Highway 522 at this time is bare and dry, but that will change later on this afternoon and into tonight. It does look like that a storm is tracking our way and we could see up to 12 inches or so of new snow before it has gotten it out of its system, late in the day tomorrow. So if your in need of things in town this would be the day to go get it. We didn’t have any new snow over night. Other than that not to much to report here this morning, so I am off for my morning cup of coffee. I might make a run to the dump, I have to check and see what I have waiting. Ha Ha. Have a good one and if out tonight and tomorrow take care when driving. GW
We all woke up to sunshine once again here in Port Loring, Ontario. Temperatures have cooled down some, sitting at -4.6 C | 23.72 F. It will continue to be cool until Sunday, then it should start to warm up once again. Which will get rid of a lot of snow. There is a storm heading in our direction which should make an appearance starting tomorrow night, or late in the day tomorrow. But as I say it all depends on which way it decides to go. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning which will make travelling good. We didn’t have any snow overnight. Yesterday and the day before with temperatures being up there we did loose about half of our snow. I would say we have around 6 inches or so left, a bit more in certain areas. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and then will do some things around the house here. There is always something to do owning a home. But in saying that, it is nice to own your own home. LOL Have a great day. GW
Good morning from Port Loring. Ontario. Great looking morning with lots of sunshine. IT will turn cloudy after a bit. Temperatures were sitting at -1.6 C | 29.12 F. It will warm up quite a bit as the day progresses. Which should get rid of a lot of snow. The only issue is that starting tomorrow we could see more snow in the amount of 6 – 8 inches or so. It all depends on which way the storm that is approaching us wants to go. Along with that, temperatures will drop some and remain a bit cool for the remainder of the week. But after that is out of its system, we will be back to some warmer temperatures. We can’t really complain as it is still February. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, so if your in need of a few things in the big city LOL this would be the day to go and get them. For us we are set for a few days. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and then do some work on my Podcasts and Columns. Have a great day. GW
Good Morning. More sunshine for us here in Port Loring Ontario, this morning. Clouds will enter into the picture as the day progresses. But on the good side of things, it will warm up a lot. Waking up temperatures were sitting at -3.2 C | 26.24 F. It will rise above the freezing mark as the day progresses. No snow overnight. Highway 522 is bare throughout which will make travelling good today. The only other issue with the highway is how rough it is. That is caused with the frost coming out of the ground and heaving things up in places. Things will settle down once we get closer to spring. But in saying that, care should be taken not to drive to fast as them bumps and things can take a toll on your vehicles suspension. On another note, I am thinking those that have ice huts on the lakes should be taking extra care these days, especially with these warmer temperatures entering into the picture. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife and will let the day unfold around me. Might wash the car and get some fresh air in a bit. Have a good day. GW
Good morning. Well we are having our share of sunshine for the past couple days. This morning once again it is showing off, which sure makes the day feel more comfortable. Highway 522 is bare throughout which will make travelling quite nice today. We didn’t have any snow overnight. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -3.9 C | 24.98 F. So being so warm I won’t start the wood furnace this morning. As a matter of fact, I let it go out overnight. So today we will burn a wee bit of oil if necessary. Good to use it once in awhile, as in doing so it keeps things working properly. It’s like anything in life, use it or loose it. Today I am into doing some work around the house here helping my lovely wife. Then I will get back to my Podcasts and Newspaper Columns. On the good side of things, I would think a bit later on today we will see some snow melting as it will warm up a lot more than it is right now, and will continue nice into tomorrow. We could see temperatures reaching a high of 5 C/40 F. Hmm, if I find some time I might just wash our car. It’s kind of dirty with the roads being the way they are. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will let the day unfold around me.
Episode: 10 This is a true story, along with what I feel is happening in our world today, and … a bit on what I think will happen in the future, and beyond that. I hope you enjoy: Education.
Good morning. Well … once again we are having some sunshine, here in Port Loring Ontario. It has cooled down some over night and this morning it is sitting at -21.1 C | -5.98 F. But the cold will be ushered out, with tomorrow being quite warm with lots of sunshine. Highway 522 is partially covered with snow and some ice throughout this morning. Travelling will okay later on this morning. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Yesterday my wife and I did get most of our driveway cleaned out, but a friend was in the area and dropped by to see us. He had a plow on the front of his truck so he cleaned the most of it with ease. Worked out well. Today I am going to work away on some stories for my Columns and then will work on some more Podcasts I have in the works. Keeps me busy and in time I would like to have all my stories put into Podcasts. It will take a lot of doing, as I have over 2000 in total. But a little at a time gets things done, or so they say LOL. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW
Lots of sunshine here this morning in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We didn’t get the snow they said or figured we would get through the night. Still … we will have to clean the driveway and things with what occurred yesterday. So, we will get our exercise once again. Highway 522 is pretty well bare throughout with a few snow covered areas. Travelling should be good though. We also should see lots of sunshine throughout the day which will make things nicer. Nearing the end of the week temperatures will rise quite a bit. We will then see some melting starting to take place. Temperatures were a bit cool this morning, but nothing like we did have a few days ago. Waking up they were sitting at -13.7 C | 7.34 F. It will warm up a touch shortly. On the ground we have around 8 inches or so of snow in total. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then see if I can work up enough energy to do some work outside. Have a great day.
Good Morning. Cloudy snowy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Over night we didn’t get no snow to speak of but this morning is another story. Snow started around 7:00 AM this morning and I suspect it will continue to do so for most the day. We could see around 4-6 inches or so when all said and done. But on the good side of all this it isn’t as cold with temperatures sitting at -3.9 C | 24.98 F. Highway 522 is snow covered and probably will remain that way for most the day. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a good one.

We are starting the day off here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada with sunshine for a change. I have to tell ya, it makes my day. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Highway 522 is partially covered mostly frost. There is a few icy sections throughout. Care should be taken until the sun has a chance to do its work. There is a chance of some really heavy snow tonight and into tomorrow. The reason for that is the change in temperatures from very cold to not so cold. Put them together and, well … things happen. So … we will see what develops. I might have to start my snowblower tomorrow or the next day. But nearing the end of the week we should be into some warmer weather along with some sunshine. On another note we had a whole house iron out filter system installed in the basement and while he was at it we had him remove all the old pipes and taps, gauges and things too, and install new. I have to tell you, it sure made a huge difference in our water. It’s great for drinking washing dishes or what ever. Should have done it years ago. One of the best investments we made. Not cheap by no means, but well worth it, and it sure made my wife happy. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW
All signs are showing that the really cold weather has left us for another year and spring will be earlier than what we are used to here in Port Loring Ontario. On another note its a bit cloudy here this morning. The good news is … it isn’t as cold with temperatures sitting at -3.3 C | 26.06 F. And we didn’t get the 3 or 4 inches of snow they said we would be getting. Makes me happy as I can get back into my story writing and Podcasts. Highway 522 is pretty well bare this morning, but there are a few icy sections throughout. Travelling should be good though. Tomorrow is Family day, not sure how many of you take it off. Every day to me is Family day LOL but, if it takes a holiday for some, so be it. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will then see what mischief I can get myself into. I am good at doing that and leaving trails, so my wife says. GW
Once again the sun is hiding from us here in Port Loring, Ontario. We didn’t have any more snow overnight to speak of, but we are getting some flurries this morning. It will probably continue throughout the day and into tonight. We could see around 3 or 4 inches. Then if we are lucky we might see some sunshine for tomorrow. Temperatures though are much warmer than yesterday morning that’s for sure. Waking up they were sitting at -7.1 C | 19.22 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward. Highway 522 is partially covered with snow, but not too bad at this time, but things will change shortly so travelling won’t be the greatest today. My wife and I went to town yesterday, which in-spite of the cold weather it turned out quite nice. We even had some sunshine for our trip in and back home. The roads were really good which made things just that much nicer. While there we had lunch with our son Karl and a nice chat, then picked up a few supplies. Great day. But no matter how you cut it, it takes a full day to go to North Bay and back home. At any rate, we are stocked up once again for a few weeks. Today I will be working on some Podcasts and kind of take things a bit easy. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee. Have a good one. GW
Good morning. Well it is one darn cold morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Waking up temperatures were sitting at -34.2 C | -29.56 F. The coldest morning this winter. It also remained cold all through the night. Highway 522 is a mixed bag of things. Some ice, snow and bare spots. Once it warms up a bit it should be a good day to travel. But at the moment I don’t recommend anyone going out in this. I also hope you had your vehicles plugged in overnight. I turned mine on around 1AM this morning and its still on. Better to spend a bit on hydro than to have an expensive repair bill fixing the car. I bet there are a few that won’t start this morning. It should start to warm up quite quickly now the sun has made its appearance, but it will have to climb a bit before I head on outside. Overnight we kept the wood furnace perking away which kept our home really comfortable. After all our upgrades this house is sure warm now, which is something that is needed in this country. Kind of nice sitting inside all nice and warm looking out. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store. Have a good day and stay warm, if you have to go out cover your mouth don’t need anyone having lung issues. GW
Episode: 9 True story which took place one time my wife and I were spending the winter in Florida.
Good morning. Once again we are in the midst of some clouds. Temperatures were a bit cool waking up sitting at -18.6 C | -1.48 F. It won’t get much warmer throughout the day, and tonight will be one of the coldest yet this year. So it might pay to keep an extra blanket close by. With this wood heat at our home there is no fear of being cold that’s for sure. It will warm up some starting Satruday. Highway 522 is snow covered with icy sections throughout. I would suggest you stay home today and wait for better road conditions. For my wife and I we like them sunny days for making the trip to town. Makes things nicer, even though we have seen it many times LOL We didn’t have any snow overnight to speak of which is fine with me as I have lots to do here in the house. And I don’t care much for this really cold weather. So with that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will let the day unfold around me. Have a good one. GW
It’s another cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario. Temperatures are staying around the same as yesterday sitting at -3.2 C | 26.24 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward a bit. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Highway 522 is bare throughout so travelling should be good today. Tonight we can expect some more snow and if things track our way we could see three more inches or so . I am hoping it passes us by. Today I will take a look at my electric stove for some reason the oven stopped working no lights come on where the clock is. We didn’t have any power surges that I know of, it just stopped working. Weird. This is the second stove that has done that in the past two years. Not sure what is going on there. Always something to keep life guessing. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store, other than what I planned. You just never know. Have a great day. GW
Good morning from Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Well to start things off we are in the midst of more clouds. The good thing is we didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Which is okay with me. Yesterday as it was, took most the morning to clean the driveway and things. But I shouldn’t complain as the snowblower does most the work, and we did get some much needed exercise. Also the sun came out while being out there and it was actually quite nice. Temperatures through the night weren’t to bad and getting out of bed they were sitting at -3.6 C | 25.52 F. If things goes to plan we should see some more sunshine throughout the day. We could see a touch of snow too but nothing to write home about. Temperatures will rise a few degrees more as the day progresses. Highway 522 is pretty well bare throughout, but it does have the odd icy section. Travelling should be good today if your in need of some supplies in North Bay or ? Other than that not much more to say here this morning. Today I will be working on some stories for my columns and my Podcasts which will keep me busy and active. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW
Cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Overnight we had around 5 inches of snow. Highway 522 is snow covered throughout with icy sections thrown in for good measure. So if out and about care should be taken. The plow has been through over night and should be making its way back through again shortly. Temperatures aren’t to bad, a touch cool sitting at -3 C | 26.6 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward. The clouds should leave us in a bit, bringing in sunshine for the rest of the day. That’s what I like to see. I guess I will have to wake up my snowblower this morning and clean out the driveway. So the clean up will take most of the morning I suspect. It will give me and my wife some fresh air an much needed exercise which is a good thing. With that bit of information under your hat, I am heading for a cup of coffee and a bite to eat. Little late this morning, slept in for some reason. I guess we must have needed the rest. The nice thing is … we can do that. Have a great day. GW
it’s a cloudy morning for us here in Port Loring Ontario. We are also in the midst of some light flurries. We could see an inch or so and maybe another inch through the night. The good news is, it isn’t as cold as it was yesterday with temperatures sitting at -10.8 C | 12.56 F. It will warm up more as the day moves forward. And tomorrow should be even warmer. Sunshine today will be scarce, but we might see a wee bit later on in the day. It would be nice and it would help those that aren’t feeling that good. We didn’t have any more snow overnight. Highway 522 is partially snow covered caused by the flurries we are having now. There are a few icy sections through out so care should be taken if out and about. Today I will be working away on some stories for my columns, and maybe finish up a Podcast I have been putting together. With that I am off to put some wood in the furnace, and then enjoy a cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW
Good morning. I hope you are all well. It’s a very cold morning here in Port Loring. Temperatures getting out of bed were sitting at -25.9 C | -14.62 F. It will warm up some as the day moves forward. Tomorrow warmer weather will enter into the picture. If so I might even wash the car. I hate looking out seeing how dirty it is. It’s like watching $60,000 rusting away right before my eyes. You know it’s cold outside when you see your windows covered with ice. But seeing that you know there is enough humidity in your home, which is a good thing. We didn’t have any snow overnight. Highway 522 is pretty well bare and dry throughout, which will make travelling good today. There are a few icy sections. Other than being a touch cool it would be a good day to get some groceries. My wife and I picked up ours last Thursday, so we are good for a week or so. On another note our wood furnace is earning its keep for a change. The heat it puts out sure feels good. It only takes around four large pieces of split wood to heat the whole house for the night. Great furnace, let me tell you. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and a bite to eat with my lovely wife. Have a great day and if out make sure you dress warm and keep your mouth covered.
