Good Morning! Well … it’s a sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario for a change, but in saying that the sunshine isn’t helping the temperature much. This morning getting out of bed it was sitting at -24.4 C | -11.92 F. Not as cold as yesterday morning though that was sitting at -27.5 C | -17.5 F. It will warm up as the week moves forward. Today it will remain sunny for most of the day which is nice. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning for most parts, but there are a few icy sections here and there. Yesterday my wife and I went to town to pick up our groceries and drop some things off at our son, in his apartments parking lot. It was too cold to chat, so we decided to chat on the phone on our way home. After we saw him we had our lunch in a parking lot watching what was going on. After that we headed on home taking in nature. The trip there and back other than being very cold was quite nice. It’s good to get out of the house for a change. We don’t do it very often nowadays only when we need some groceries. On another note I just cleaned out some ashes from my wood furnace this morning along with my shop stove, as they both were getting so full I couldn’t get any more wood in them. They fill up with in a week with this cold weather that we have been having. Now I am going to have a bowl of oatmeal and will then move some things around in the woodworking shop, and then I am thinking I will take it a bit easy today for a change. With that you all take care of yourselves and stay safe. It is getting quite bad out there these days with the new variants of this virus among us. But in town yesterday, we noticed that a lot of people were doing what was right and fewer people were travelling and moving around. Keep it up, as it is the only way we are going to decrease the numbers. And hey! A lot of lives depend on us doing just that.
