Morning Report May 16/2020

Good Morning. Well it’s not to bad of a day temperature wise, with them sitting at 9 C | 48.2 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward. We should see some sunshine off and on for most of the day and into tomorrow. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning with minimal travel. But it is early. Yesterday there were lots of folks out and about and a lot not from our area. Is it a good thing. Well …. time will tell. Talking about the long weekend and folks travelling, I am not sure what the big deal is. Simply put … everyone has been on a holiday now for the past two months, and along with that, a lot are even getting paid to stay home. Some I even overheard wants this to keep up, not wanting to go back to work saying this is much easier to get a pay check. Amazing how some folks minds think. Well …. what can you do? Not much other than look after yourself and do what is right. For my wife and I we are staying put working around our home where it is safe for now. Today I will be working in the vegetable gardens, rototiller them up so I can get to planting a few things. I am hoping to plant all my underground things later on today. I was hoping I could beat the Black Flies, but when out yesterday they are starting to swarm which is going to make things unpleasant for the next few weeks. Looking at that in another way the Black Flies will keep people inside you can bet on that. And after that the mosquitoes will be out in full force. Joys of summer. LOL. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea, and will take the day as it comes. Stay safe and keep your distance from others. As I keep on saying just because the powers that be say it is okay to do certain things … doesn’t make it right. Common sense is what is needed. GW
