Rainy morning. Actually raining quite hard which in turn should melt a lot of snow. I will be happy when it is all gone. Been a long winter. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 1.8 C | 35.24 F Highway 522 is bare, but very wet with all the rain. I would think it is a good day to stay home. Relax a bit. That’s what I intend to do. On another note, I had our oil provider drop by yesterday to fill our tank. Not a cheap item on the list anymore. And to make it worse this Carbon Tax that is added, for no good reason, brings up the cost of a tank of oil $30.00. They say they are giving it back which isn’t totally true. Its not just the tax on gas or oil now, as with this new tax everything goes up. Reason being farmers have to charge more, trucking companies have to charge more, so everything goes up, like groceries, clothes you name it. We will pay dearly let me tell you. The worst part of it is, this Carbon tax does nothing in my eyes to help the environment. There are a lot better ways to address this problem than forcing tax on the working man and businesses. Think about this, how can punishing the working man help the environment? If they are giving it back why charge it in the first place? Laughable in some areas and painful in others. My Opinion Only.
Canada is warming on average at a rate twice as fast as the rest of the world, a new scientific report indicates.
The thing is it has only increased this amount in Canada. And another thing is, it has only increased 1.7C (3F) since 1948. It has taken 70 years to reach this amount. I will say that again … 70 years. To me it is no reason to get upset about. It also is no reason to force this carbon tax on folks. They say they are going to give it back. If this is the case why take it in the first place. Also, what they are giving you back, is just a piece of what we should be getting back, as this tax will raise prices from gas to food to all kinds of things. But the main concern is this. If you tax people to an extent that it hurts, people will start hoarding. When that happens no one wins. There is a lot better ways to save the environment than forcing tax upon companies and the working people. My opinion only.
Low Canadian dollar means costs of fruits and veggies to rise.
So they say. Well that is par for the course taking into consideration that our Powers That Be has all but eliminated all our small farmers here in Canada. On the bright side though it will be a plus to those that are still in the farming business here in Canada. As the grocery stores will be forced to seek cheaper produce. Which in turn can only be found here in Canada. Will this occurrence make for more farmers here at home? I will have to think on that. But in saying all this it is just one more reason to seek out a nice sunny spot on your own property and do some planting come spring. If you do this you eliminate all of the above. Have a good day.
Good Morning: Cloudy morning waking up here in Port Loring Ontario. Also got a few flurries taking place. Still a bit to warm for it to stay, but it is a sign of what’s to come. Temperatures were sitting at 1.3 C | 34.34 F. Won’t warm up much more than that. Could see a bit of sunshine off and on. Tomorrow though we could see some accumulation of snow for the first time, as there is a system going through our area that has some white stuff tied to it.
Pain, Colds & Flu Related To Weather: Today the weather won’t help or will it hinder. It’s just going to set there and let things look after their-selves. Kind of different in some respects.
Road Report: Highway 522 is wet with a bit of ice forming in certain areas. Travelling will still be good but care should be taken.
Hunting Information: Today isn’t the greatest day for hunting. Be it camera or Bow. I give it a 2 Buck rating out of 5 for seeing a few. Good Luck and stay safe. Especially if out there alone.
Snow Report; We are having some flurries as I stated above. They will become more pronounced as the temperatures drop through the night and into tomorrow. Colder weather is moving into our area.
Around Town: Not to much to report here on this fine Friday morning. Most folks are looking forward to the weekend which is the way folks has been programmed over the years by our Powers To Be. Amazing how some believe everything that these so called Powers say is correct. I myself listen but go my own way. I know about their deviousness and won’t be subjected to what they are trying to say or do. Something to think about my friends. With that tea time here Chaga mixed with a touch of Dandelion is on the menu this morning. Great drink to increase appetite and strength, physically and mentally. Enjoy your day!

Ice Fishing Times: This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 3:00 PM – 5:30 PM. I give it a 5 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Good Luck!
Around Town: I see in the news the wind farm has been stopped in Mattawa. My own personal opinion is that it’s for the best. I can’t see our money,taxpayers money, being paid out for something that costs us money. Not to forget the effects it would have had on Nature. There are a lot better avenues out there where our money should be going. That’s the problem today, so much waste. Big ideas never being thought out. As I say, my opinion only. So with that it’s tea time here. Corn Silk tea is my choice this morning. Great for bringing on happiness, strength and contentment. In reality what more could a person ask for? Enjoy your day.

Good Morning: Warmed up a touch through the night. One though would still need a shirt on going outside with temperatures waking up sitting at -15.9 C | 3.38 F. But a lot better than that minus 30 stuff.
Forecast For Today. Starting off we will see s bit of sunshine and then we will see snow with some very unsettled weather. Kind of think it was due as my driveway is all cleaned out now.
Highway Report: Highway 522 is covered with hard packed snow along with some icy sections throughout. Travelling should be fair early this morning.
Ice Fishing Times: This morning the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 7:30 AM – 9:45 AM. Then once again from 2:30 PM – 4:45 PM. I give it a 4 fish rating out of 5 for catching a few. Should be a good day for putting fish in the frying pan come supper. Good Luck!
Around Town: Here in Port Loring not much is happening in the way of things. I see gas prices are still down, which in my mind is where they should be. Only thing that isn’t down is furnace oil, or at least in our neck of the woods. Oh it is down some, but no change since late summer of last year. Kind of makes a fellow wonder what is going on in that department. The old trend was, that we live so far back in that we had to pay extra for the trucking and things to get products brought in to us. Today though that isn’t really an issue as most companies have their route set up and if your on it, your on it. Also over the past few years there has been a lot of folks raising their prices on other items saying it was because of the gas prices being so high. Do you think now they will drop their prices back to where it once was? I suspect not, as once the price has been initiated it is there to stay. So what can we do? Shop around my friends and don’t be afraid to let folks know your feelings. At the very least, you are entitled to that. My opinion only.
