It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. We will also be having some showers off and on this morning. If we are lucky, we might see some sunshine tomorrow. But cooler temperatures will be upon us for most of next week. Along with some more rain off and on. So it’s going to be kind of a mixed bag of weather for a few days. Highway 522 is getting busy. I got up through the night and cars with boats along with campers were going up and down the highway at 2:00 AM. It’s a sign of what’s to come.
On another note, the Blackflies are still annoying, but not as bad as other years. And … yes, the Mosquitoes have started to make themselves noticed. All this damp, warm weather gets them to moving around.
Yesterday I worked away in my old woodworking shop for a bit. Fixed up my old rototiller a bit more and worked in my vegetable garden getting it ready to plant. I will probably do that the middle of the week, as that is when the nighttime temperatures are looking pretty good. I like it to stay around the 50 F mark at nights before I plant. The old saying when I was farming many years ago. Don’t plant till after the 24th of May. I can still hear my old Dad saying that.
With that bit of info under your hat, that is if you wear a hat, I am off for coffee and piece of toast this morning. I don’t feel all that hungry. Have a great day and stay safe. There is still a lot of sickness in our area these days. GW
