Morning Report

We did have some sunshine early this morning then clouds rolled in. Today we will see some sun and clouds for most the day with maybe some rain thrown in for good measure. It will be very humid and hot. Great day to take it a bit easy. After all, it is the weekend. We did see some rain through the night, not much but every bit helps. Mosquitoes like this kind of weather. Yesterday we headed into town for some supplies that we can’t get here in town. It was a great trip but every store was lined up at the check outs. I guess that is a good sign. People spending money. We then went for supper with our son Karl at Lot 88. Great place to eat other than being a touch expensive. But once in a while we like to splurge. Just because we can. My lovely wife and Karl ordered a bottle of Woodbridge, U.S.A CABERNET SAUVIGNON to start things off. A light white wine. Very tasty to say the least. Let’s just say none went to waste. For the main meal my wife and Karl had :

Glazed Chicken & Ribs
Grilled chicken breast, pineapple glaze, half rack, Lot 88 BBQ sauce and a Caesar salad.

Myself I had a : Lot 88 Burger
A prime rib patty, egg, aged Canadian cheddar, apple wood bacon, onion strings, ancho aioli and Caesar salad.

After that we picked up some groceries, did a bit of running around to other stores, chatted and arrived back home at 9:00 PM. Then we checked what we spent, looked at each other and went to bed. LOL Today I am going to take things a bit easy being so hot. Tomorrow I will get back to my shop work. With that I am off for my morning coffee.

Today fishing won’t be the greatest with the rain we had last night and it being so hot. I give it a 1 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck though if you do head out, and make sure you have a rain coat. Seems things like that are easy to forget, other than the net.

Good Morning

Once again we have sunshine waking up here in Port Loring Ontario. The good news is we did have a nice rain through the night. I think my plants in the vegetable garden grew a foot. They all look nice and refreshed this morning. Temperatures stayed warm through the night and into this morning. Getting out of bed they were sitting at 23 C | 73.4 F. It will be a really hot day today getting warmer as the day moves forward. We could see some more rain with all this heat. A little more wouldn’t hurt, as the trees and things could use it. Mother Nature looks after her own. Being so hot care should be taken if out in the sun for any length of time. I put our open sign up every morning and there is one huge old horse fly that I think sits out there waiting for me, as he bugs me every morning until I am back in the house. One of these days he might just happen to meet his maker. So with them few words the horse and deer flies are still with us annoying at times. Mosquitoes are still around too but not as bad with this heat. The black flies are all but gone in most areas. Today I will be back in the woodworking shop working on my Flutes. I might only work a half a day today it being so warm. Just because I can. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. GW

Today the old weather stick is saying the fishing will be pretty good. I give it a 3 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. With this rain we had last night it might slow things down a wee bit. The winds are coming in from the North West this morning. Good luck!

Good Morning Port Loring

Well another sunny day here waking up. Few clouds but otherwise quite nice. It did cool down through the night so sleeping was more pleasant. Seems I can take the heat through the day but at nights, I like cool sheets. Temperatures were sitting at 20.6 C | 69.08 F. It will warm up a lot as the day moves forward. We do have a good chance of some rain or a thunderstorm through today and into tomorrow. I hope so we sure need it. Besides that I am tired of carrying water for my garden. But I do know if I don’t, we won’t have any fresh veggies for the table. The hot weather will end on Sunday and next week is looking nice. With Nature one has to take what comes along. Yesterday I worked all day in the woodworking shop and attending customers. We have had a steady stream of customers for the past few weeks which has kept my wife and I busy. Nice to see. Today I will again be working in the shop, I finished up most of my orders and now can concentrate on my flutes. I want to get them finished before the cold weather hits. It takes me around two to three months to finish them from start to finish. So with that stay cool, and I am off for my morning cup of coffee on the front porch. Then I will see what mischief I can get myself into.

It has the possibility of being a great day for fishing with the way the weather is looking. I give it a 4 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. It might pay to take a raincoat along with you and be prepared to get to shore if the sky darkens. The wind is coming in from the South East.

Nothing beats front porch sittin”

Morning report

Good morning. The sun is shinning once again waking up, which makes things much nicer. A light breeze is coming in from the North with temperatures sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. There is a slight chance of a thunderstorm later on in the day. But for most parts it will be pretty nice. On the flip side it will be quite warm and will continue till the weekend. I am hoping we do have some rain as the gardens and things sure need a drink. Today I will be in the shop working on a few orders and my Flutes. Lots to do these days. But it’s what I enjoy doing so no complaints. If it gets to hot I will stop for the day and enjoy a cool one on the front porch. Now and then I like to bug my lovely wife. Seems we can chat about anything for hours. And you know? We are good at it. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and a bite to eat. Then will see what develops. Have a great day! It’s all in how you make it.

Morning Report

Us humans woke up to a few clouds this morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We also had a touch of rain through the night but not enough to wet the ground. Today we will see clouds and sunshine. Tomorrow there is a slight risk of a thunderstorm. With these hot humid Florida like temperatures we could get anything. But for most parts it is looking like a not so bad week. It will be quite warm though and humid today. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 21.3 C | 70.34 F. Black Flies are pretty well all gone. Mosquitoes are still with us but not as bad. Horse and deer flies are another story. If you are near the bush they find you. On another note it looks like I might have to carry some water for my gardens with it being so dry. Today I will be working in the shop once again. Took me all day to set up for making Flutes. Lots involved in their making. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will let the day unfold around me.

Morning Report For Port Loring Ontario

Great looking day waking up. Sun is shinning and the birds were all enjoying themselves outside my bedroom window. Cars and trucks are manoeuvring up and down the highway with even the odd plane flying over our home. Yep summer is here along with the tourists. Nice to see folks entering back into the picture. Temperatures were sitting at 17.6 C | 63.68 F. By the looks of things we are in for a very hot week with only a slight chance of rain mid week. We do need rain. On another note we did have a busy day yesterday at our store. Folks dropped by to pick up a few things along with friends coming in to say hi letting us know they are back for the summer. You could say it was a talking day. Today I will be working on some small orders and things. Once they are finished I will get back to working on my Flutes. Lot of tedious work making them. After three in the afternoon it is front porch sittin’ time. Why is that? Just because I can. With that I am off for a cup of coffee and then get on with my chores.

Today fishing will be pretty good. With this heat that is coming things might slow down. But hey! Fish have a way of defying humans thinking.
I give it a 3 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few nice ones. Good Luck!

Great way to start the day other than getting out of bed.

Good Morning

A few clouds waking up here in Port Loring Ontario Canada. Temperatures were sitting at 16.6 C | 61.88 F. We will see more sunshine as the day progresses. Actually it will be a really nice day all way round. Black flies are all but gone, the mosquitoes are still with us. But this dry warm weather takes a toll on them. Today I will finish up some small orders for folks then I am thinking some front – porch sittin’ is the thing to do. It’s hard not to take advantage of this nice weather. I also have to water my vegetables as it is quite dry. The old saying is: You have to give to get. Seems that is correct in some ways. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and let the day unfold around me. GW

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!

1 Adam Scott Australia -7
2 Francesco Molinari Italy -7

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!

New Jobs

Hmm our Government here in Canada says it will  be contributing $110 million in partnership with the government of Ontario, which will match our investment in Toyota.” Trudeau said. Doing so will enable 450 new jobs.  My way of looking at it is that, that money is ours the people’s not the governments. . It’s my opinion that any jobs created by the government is not really an asset to us, if the government is paying for them out of our money.  As we the working folks other than government has to pay for these new-found jobs. I suppose they are thinking in the long run it might pay off.  But it will take a while if it does at all.   My opinion only.
