Good Morning! It’s a sunny morning for a change here in Port Loring, Ontario. It is a bit cool though with the temperature getting out of bed sitting at -1.9 C | 28.58 F. Things will warm up as the day moves forward. After today, a lot of warmer weather will enter into the picture, and we should see our highs reaching 17C/64F nearing the end of the week. Which will sure make it nice for being outside. Yesterday I didn’t do too much outside, but my lovely wife did finish up the raking out back of our house. Things are looking pretty good around the place now, and will continue to get nicer once the plants start to grow, and the grass starts to turn green, along with the leaves on the trees. Can’t wait. Through the night we did have some more frost which is rapidly melting with the sun that is upon us. Pretty well all our snow has left us, other than a bit that is left at the end of my driveway by my woodworking shop, where it was pushed into a pile throughout the winter. But it will be gone by the middle of the week I am sure. Highway 522 is bare and dry. Today I will do some outside work getting things ready to build our shower house for the cottage. Going to take a lot of work, but a little at a time things get done. And as I said before we would like to get a lot of the hard work done before the Black Flies enter into the picture, along with the mosquitoes. We will see how that goes. We are still lighting our wood furnace every morning with it being so cold, but I suspect that will come to an end shortly. On another note the Snow Drops a little white flower is blooming in our gardens showing off. I have to admit they are sure nice to see every spring. They don’t last too long. Lots of new birds are also coming back to our area, like the Robbins, Crows, Geese, Ducks and Seagulls. Every day a few more enter into the picture. Which my wife and I enjoy. Soon their offspring’s will be brought around for us to see as they seem to do that every year. With that I am off for a bowl of oatmeal with my lovely wife and will then see what the day has in store, other than what I have planned. I have always said that you can make plans but never plan the results. Take care and stay safe this virus is getting much worse these days here in Ontario.
Ontario is reporting another 3,009 COVID-19 cases yesterday and 16 more deaths.
