Morning Report April 30/2020

Good morning. It’s another rainy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It rained most of the day yesterday, last night and will continue on for most of the day today. In saying that … after today things will change around for the better, with sunshine staying with us for the next few weeks. Which is what we are in need of to dry things out. Highway 522 is quiet as normal this time of day, but it seems to be picking up with folks from other places coming into our area. I can’t rightly say I blame them, but in the same sentence I would hope if they do come into our area they bring what they need with them, then stay at their cottage for a couple weeks not going anywhere. Shouldn’t be a big deal if they did that. But we will see what happens. The busiest store in town is the liquor store, it seems to be the trend these days. Ha Ha. Hear again can’t say I really blame folks. What ever it takes to overcome this mess we are in the better it is. On another note, I will be busy for the next few days as my firewood is coming either tomorrow or the next day. That should keep my lovely wife and I busy for the next week piling it under the lean-to. It’s nice to have on hand in case what we are going through right now takes a turn for the worse. Which … I don’t think it will. It will just take time for a vaccine to be made. You would think with all this modern technology, money and things in the world today it would be done quite quickly. That to me shows that we still have a lot to learn in the disease department. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea and will let the day unfold around us. Take care and stay safe. GW

Morning Report April 29/2020

Cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at 8.4 C | 47.12 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward. There is a heavy rain warning up for our area for today and into tomorrow. We could see 25 to 50 mm by the end of the day. So by the looks of things it isn’t going to be a great day to be outside. I suspect we will have two days of rain before we see some sunshine again. Highway 522 is bare and dry as of now, but that will change shortly. Winds are also picking up a wee bit. On another note I did manage to get some more of my gardens tilled up yesterday so they can dry, but with this weather that is coming in it will take some more drying when all said and done. Today I will take things a bit easy. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife, and will let the day unfold around me. Take care and stay safe. GW

Morning Report April 28/2020

Good Morning. Cloudy morning here in Port Loring Ontario, Canada. It will warm up some as the day progresses. At time of post temperatures were sitting at 3.8 C | 38.84 F. We will see some rain later on tonight and into tomorrow and Thursday. After that should be back to some sunshine. Highway 522 is bare and dry with a few cars off and on. On another note I did get some front porch sitting in yesterday and took in some of that much needed sunshine. I also tilled up my vegetable garden so now the soil can breath and dry. I also did some work on some equipment getting them in shape for summer. Today being a not so nice day I will take it a bit easy and maybe work on a podcast that I have in mind. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife and will let the day unfold around me. Take care an stay safe.

Morning Report April 27/2020

Good Morning. By the looks of things it is shaping up to be a really nice day. The sun is shinning and temperatures waking up were sitting at 2.8 C | 37.04 F. It will warm up even more as the day moves forward. Which is okay with me. As I love the sunshine and warm temperatures. Yesterday was quite nice too and my lovely wife and I enjoyed our rocking chairs on the front porch for most the day. It actually got a bit to hot there for awhile. LOL Not complaining mind ya. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning and quiet. I suspect it will pick up as the day moves forward. Today I will do some more work around the house here taking advantage of the nice weather. Tomorrow it will become cloudy and then we could see three or four days of rain off and on. Just when I was getting used to the sunshine. LOL On another note the grass is starting to green up some which is nice. I enjoy the green colour more than the white. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my little woman and will see what mischief I can get myself into. My wife says I am good at it. LOL Take care, stay safe when around people. GW

Morning Report April 26/2020

Good Morning. It’s a cool morning starting things off with temperatures sitting at 3.8 C | 38.84 F. It will warm up as the day progresses. We also should see some sunshine off an on throughout the day. Highway 522 is bare and quiet this morning. Yesterday though things were busy with folks coming in from other places. Some say it’s a good thing and some say it isn’t. For those that say it is a good thing, I say we will see. Some say we need tourists and such for their business’s to survive. I say there is more to it than money. But it seems money is what rules in countries today. More so than a person’s health. So … not much a person can do than to protect themselves from others. That’s what my wife and I are doing and will continue to do until a vaccine is available, which will take a good year I suspect. On another note, yesterday was really nice weather wise and my wife and I got a lot done around the house here. I even rolled our lawn which smooths things out a lot and makes things just that much nicer to walk on throughout the summer months. We also got in some front porch sitting too which was nice. Today we will do much the same. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will let the day unfold around me. Take care, stay safe when around others, especially those you don’t know. GW
