Well folks … it is a down right cold morning here in Port Loring, the temperature dropped through the night, and at the time of this post it was sitting at -22.2 C | -7.96 F. It will warm up a wee bit as the day moves forward, but not all that much. Things will start to warm back up on Sunday. It seems the weather can’t make up its mind this winter on what it wants to do. I suspect it’s a sign that our world is changing the way it does things, as it has been doing, for over a thousand of years. And the thing is, there is nothing we can do about it. Some countries will be hard hit, while others will go ahead leaps and bounds.
With the winds coming in from the NNW this morning, it will make things feel colder than what it is. Truth told, it really isn’t all that bad considering where we live. I’ve seen it get down to minus -40C/-40F here in Port Loring. The good part is our wood furnace keeps us warm no matter how cold it gets. If we were burning oil, we would be in for some hard times financially. It’s bad enough now burning oil with the price that they are charging us. Gouging, I should say. It’s okay for the Powers to Be to sell it to other countries, but it isn’t okay to sell it to us Canadians … at a fair price. Totally ridiculous. I have no faith in Governments at all.
Highway 522 is pretty well bare this morning, but there are some icy sections here and there. The good news is the sun is shinning, which in spite of the cold makes it look a lot nicer.
On another note, I worked all day yesterday on some podcasts. I got lots done, and will continue on today doing the same. I would like to get enough done up for one year. Have to see how that goes. I also have a few ideas on a new series that I want to bring to life for my Podcasts along with the Newspapers I write for. I am hoping to get at that in the coming days.
Most of January and February I work in the house here where it is warm, and then come March will ease… myself back out to my woodworking shop, and from there to my vegetable gardens. Change is good.
With that, I am off for some Port Loring Toast this morning that my lovely wife is making for me. Some call it French Toast, but I favour Port Loring Toast. Put a touch of Mike Clappertons World Renown Maple Syrup on top, and you have yourself a fantastic breakfast treat.
Stay warm, and dress accordingly this morning. Don’t need anyone catching a cold, as there is enough of it going around as it is.
In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You Well
