What’s Happening In The Frozen North On January 21/2024

Good Morning! Frost’s on the barn, but we’re still kickin’.

It is a touch cool here in cottage country this morning with the temperature sitting at -24.4 C | -11.92 F. But walking to the shop this morning I did find a wee bit of warmth in the sun, which by the way was nice to see and feel. However, it is the middle of winter for us here in the north which means …. the cold is just starting along with the snow. The good news is every day from now on is closing in on spring. Which I always look forward too.

Highway 522 is partially snow covered with some icy sections throughout, So care should be taken if out and about.

On another note, my lovely wife and I took a trip to North Bay yesterday to pick up some supplies, which will last us for a few more weeks. Not that we truly needed anything, but it did get us out of the house for a spell, taking in some new sights, which is what is needed living where we do, with being so busy and all. We call it getting away from things. While there we dropped some things off to Karl our son who works at NORAD there in the Bay, Had a short chat, got a bite to eat enjoying it together in the car, while people watching, and then headed on home with coffee in hand, taking in nature as we passed it by. I have to tell you, the trees and things sure looked pretty with all the snow on the branches. It seems we never get tired of looking at it. But then again, summer is down right nice too here in the north.

Morning Humour: Back in ’68, Gramps swore he caught a fish so big during the annual ice fishing derby that it pulled him across the frozen lake on his trusty toboggan. Some say it was a legendary pike; others suspect Gramps might’ve been sampling his hot cocoa/? a bit generously that day.

With that, it’s time for me to head back to the woodpile, like a stack of memories waiting to be kindled. And have a great day, A! GW
