What’s happening? Nov. 3/2021

Good Morning! I hope everyone is well on this fine-looking Wednesday morning. At least it is looking nice here in Port Loring, Ontario, weather wise. It is a touch cool this morning, with the temperature sitting at -2.6 C | 27.32 F. It will warm up a bit as the day moves forward. We did have a skif of snow overnight, but we should see a lot of sunshine throughout the day. The good news is, that after today things will start to warm back up again. Heck, we might even get some front porch sittin’ in. Can’t beat that for this time of year, let me tell ya. Yesterday I worked inside for most of the day on a story or two. This morning, I lit the wood furnace in the house and my woodworking shop for the first time this winter. Feels mighty nice, too. It’s amazing the difference in heat between oil or gas or wood. Wood is the best of them all. They say wood is bad for our environment, but I don’t believe that for one minute. Contrary to what many may think, burning wood for heat does not add to your individual carbon footprint, as wood gives off the same amount of carbon whether it is burned up or decays naturally. Wood burning does not release any more carbon dioxide than the eventual biodegradation of the wood if it was not burned. The oil, gas and electric companies won’t tell you that though as they are out to make money. Highway 522 is slowing down these days other than a few trucks moving up and down the highway. Which is from all the building that is going on in our area these days. With that I am off for my morning bowl of oatmeal and will then see what the day has in store. Take care and stay safe. GW
