Firewood Time

Well got to say it sure is a cold one out there the past two mornings. But on the bright side its a real good time to split wood, which we have. This year I bought some logs delivered to the house to save a bit of money. Took the wife and I a bit to get the oooold body going but each day it got easier.  I think the problem with most folks today is that they don’t get enough hard exercise.  I had a few problems for years but now that I cut split and piled 20 cords of firewood I am feeling like a 20 year old again. Hard to believe huh. I will say this though, having them logs laying by the house for folks to see sure kept company away, LOL.  Might be the answer for them unwanted guests huh? Well guess will go and get my breakfast and then get back at cutting and splitting. Should finish it up today or tomorrow. Will take some pictures when all said and done of before and after.  Oh and takes a week of steady work to cut, split and pile around twenty cords of firewood 16 inches long and no log splitter other than an ax an some muscle.  Talk Soon.

Cold For Next Week

Well winter isn’t over yet as it’s going to get cold for next week. Talk Soon

Storm Heading Our Way

If this storm track is right it should hit most of Ontario.

Taken literally, you can say that some of the numerical models loudly argue for a genuine blizzard across the Upper Midwest and much of the Great Lakes this weekend. And while the European version at 12z implied an ice storm threat to the major metropolitan areas of Kansas City MO, Chicago IL, and Grand Rapids MI, there is potential for the storm, and rain vs. snow placement, to take a bit more of a rightward curve that would enable the heavy snowfall, wind and cold combination. With the upper low phasing into a deep trough and vortex, the abundance of 500MB height falls and eastward displacement of the vorticity maxima makes it possible that the surface low will redevelop off of the coast of LI NY. This secondary could help to prevent a shift from snow to rain in much of New England and the Maritime Provinces. Otherwise, the entire warm sector of the giant disturbance will feature heavy rain and strong thunderstorms. The risk of severe weather in Dixie may be limited by a very moist atmospheric profile, but still, strong winds are virtually assured in the tight pressure gradient about the low.

Snowfall totals within the colder quadrants of the gyre may be in the 10 to 15 inch range (caveat: lake-related moisture could enhance amounts in parts of IL, WI, MI, and ON), and a thin stripe of territory just above the storm trajectory axis could be hit with a rather impressive icing event. Following the storm will be about 48 hours of extreme cold that at one point could cover most of the area between the Rocky Mountains and the Eastern Seaboard.

Snow Pretty Well All Gone

Well we had our January thaw. Some would say now that the Global Warming has hit but I say it’s nothing of the sort.  January thaws have been with us from the beginning of time. Some years are more pronounced than some but for most parts they are about the same.  One thing about this thaw was, I got rid of the ice build up on my roof.  I sure had a lot this year and it was my own fault.  I didn’t shut up the upstairs and the warmth got up there and well that is what causes the ice jams.  So now that it is melted I closed up the old trap door and it should be good for the next couple months till spring hits.  Today was sunny a first for a few days so that was nice to see for a change. Cooler but nice.  Talk Soon.

Pretty Good Day

Well not a bad day here today but calling for a storm later on tonight. Up to around four or five inches of the white stuff is what they are calling for.  Talk Soon.

Merry Christmas Folks

Well Christmas is almost here.  We had the boys up for a visit, the oldest has left for home and the youngest is staying for a week.  Had a real good time while they were here just not long enough.  Yesterday we had heavy rain but the good part it got rid of some ice dams on my roof. One more day like that would have cleaned it right up. Oh well that’s the way it goes.  This morning though woke up to about five more inches of snow so that guaranteed a white Christmas.  My speed for the weather station is froze up so won’t be able to upload the wind speed till it thaws out a bit.  The directional works though after a bit of work.  Talk Soon

Port Loring Weather Station

Looks like a wee bit of sunshine here for today and warming up tomorrow and on Sunday.  Kind of hoping for that so the ice dams on my roof will melt.  Guess I got to do something about them next year. Talk Soon.

Cold Night

Well temperatures have dropped here since supper and was down to -3Below old scale, rising a wee bit now. Kind of nice though with this wood heat as it is a constant heat. The nice thing also is we have an old gravity fed furnace from years ago. Works great and once you come into the house from outside you are warm. Talk Soon

 

   
   

Monday Night

Rather cloudy and very cold with snow at times, accumulating a coating to an inch; breezy late
Low: 1°F
RealFeel®: -2°F

Man It’s Cold


On the weather forecast below just remember when it says rain this time of year,  it really means snow,  just that the station doesn’t recognize the word snow.  Maybe some day will get one that does. Once the temperature goes above 32F then it will read right.

Well I got to say we had the coldest night this year last night.  Got down to around -12 Below old scale.  Kind of makes a fellow or gal appreciate a warm house.   The old wood furnace here is perking away along with the one in the shop.   I keep the one in the shop going, just in case the urge hits to do some work.  In this kind of weather though it isn’t to often but it’s nice just knowing I can if I decide to. Keep Warm, Talk soon.

Great Day

Well got up this morning to some cold temperatures of around 10 with light snow.   Wife is making a tea and we both are looking out. I got to say every window is like a picture living here in the country.  The turnips were a hit last night that I put out yesterday as I think we must have around twenty deer come for a snack.  So that’s good they didn’t go to waste.  Got the shop stove going and house wood furnace going so things are getting warmed up a bit.  One just likes the thick blankets on mornings like this.  But life moves on and the wife and I can’t wait each morning to get into our day.   Egg delivery this morning also so lots going on.  Talk Soon

Port Loring Weather

Well not much going on here weather wise. Snow has stopped and sun has shown itself all day today.  Other than being pretty cold as temperatures got down to minus -6 F last night and only highs of around 10 F today it was a good day.  I will say this though one sure appreciates his nice warm shop through out the day and his house in the evening after work. Talk Soon.

Snow And More Snow

Well decided yesterday not to clean the driveway though we did have around ten inches or so. Reason being it was suppose to have some freezing rain through the night, so thought ahead, that way the rain will fall on the snow and will be able to clean it all up the next day. Worked slick as if I would have cleaned it yesterday it would have been bare and with the ice it would be slippery. Pays to think ahead once and awhile and keep an eye on what the weather is going to be. I never go anywhere unless I make sure the weather is going to be ok and that saves for a lot of grief. I know though some folks have to drive no matter what the weather but knowing what the weather is going to be can help them also. I am lucky here in Port Loring not snow wise as if any one is going to get snow its here in Port Loring. As we get dumped on with any storm that comes across Lake Huron. But as I said in other posts, it doesn’t bother us one bit as we are ready for anything, well pretty well anything.  I also heard that we broke a few records on this fine day with more snow than before.  You know we should bring them scientists up here to the north and maybe they wouldn’t be so gong ho on that Global Warming.  The old earth will do what it wants with out any help from us.  Food for thought.   Only thing we ask is for nice weather over Christmas so folks are kept safe. Talk Soon.
