Good Morning Port Loring Ontario Canada

Another cloudy morning. Temperatures are warming up sitting at 3.2 C | 37.76 F Today we will see much of the same. But the good news is the snow is rapidly melting. I actually can see my front lawn again. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning which will make travelling good. We did have rain for most of the day yesterday which also helped in getting rid of the snow.

On another note, those that would like to watch the 2019 Masters Tournament will be able to do so on a few of our Canadian Television Stations, later on this afternoon and tomorrow. The leader board after yesterday, was!

Take note of our Canadian player Corey Conners. He will be a fellow to watch in the coming years. His position right now at the Masters is fantastic if you figure who he is up against. It is also great to see Tiger Woods making a come back after a few bad years.



The Masters, Corey Conners

For us in Canad when watching the Masters, keep an eye on Corey Conners. Canada as far as I am concerned doesn’t give enough credit to their Golfers. Mike Weir was a good Golfer, but there is one fellow that is much better. That is Corey Conners. At the moment he is at -3, which is fantastic. He is the fellow to keep an eye on. I think he is going to be one of the best Golfers to come down the tubes in a long, long time.

Good Morning Port Loring Ontario

Cloudy morning waking up. Climbing out of bed temperatures were sitting at 4.4 C | 39.92 F Today’s Forecast is calling for a mixed bag of weather. We might even see, or should say hear some thunder above us. Highway 522 is bare and dry at the moment. It at least feels warmer out there when I went outside to feed the birds. The snow is about 80% gone and with these warmer temperatures and rain it won’t last long. I did hear a die hard snowmobiler last night going through the bush. Not that much snow out there so it can’t be doing the machine any good. Oh well, it’s his money. With that I am off for my morning coffee with my lovely wife and I will then tune in the Masters for the second day. Yesterday was a great day. Starting off there was a threat of rain but it held off for most of the day. Hope it is nice today for all the golfers. At this time the leader board is saying:

1 Brooks Koepka -6
2 Bryson DeChambeau -6
3 Phil Mickelson -5
4 Ian Poulter -4
4 Dustin Johnson -4
6 Adam Scott -3

Good Morning Port Loring

We woke up to mostly clouds this morning. There is a warning up for some freezing rain overnight to Friday morning, which should make things interesting. Precipitation will begin as snow late this afternoon or evening, then change to ice pellets. Ice pellets will change to freezing rain overnight. Freezing rain will continue for several hours before finally changing to rain Friday morning. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -6 C | 21.2 F It should warm up a wee bit, but we will have to wait and see. Highway 522 at the moment is dry and bare, but that could change. On another note my lovely wife and I went to North Bay yesterday to pick up a few items of choice. Had a great day sunshine both ways. Roads were good other than a bit rough with the frost coming out of the ground. But they were dry, so the trip didn’t mess up my car for a change. In town, we picked up the things we wanted, found some great deals, and had lunch. Nothing special this time round. So with that I am off to put some more wood once again in the furnace and have a coffee with my wife, and will see what the day has in store. The 2019 Masters starts today. Should make for, 4 great days of Golf. Looking forward to it with a couple cool ones and maybe a Pizza thrown in for good measure. GW

The worlds best Golf, is at the Masters!
