Morning Report March 13/2020

So how you all doing this morning? Good I hope. We all woke up to cloudy weather here in Port Loring, Ontario, this morning. We also are having a few showers thrown in for good measure. I suspect it will continue for most the day. I don’t think we will see any sunshine till later on tomorrow. Temperatures were a bit cool this morning sitting at 1.5 C | 34.7 F. It won’t warm up much more today than it is now. Highway 522 is bare and wet this morning which is good for travelling. My wife and I did make a trip to North Bay yesterday for some supplies. A lot of things are sold out because of this virus that is threatening our country and others. At least some folks are getting prepared which I feel is a good thing. Today I will take things a bit easy as it seems that after a trip to town it takes me a day to recoup so to speak. Probably caused from the money we spent. Ha ha. Man things are getting expensive. Some stores though are trying to capitalize on this virus charging double the normal prices. Kind of makes me shake my head in wonder sometimes. But that is what some folks do from time to time. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and then will see what the day has in store for me. Never know these days. Have a great day , stay calm with what is going on, and do what you can to make things easier for yourself an family. GW

Good Morning. It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We didn’t have any snow over night, but things have cooled down somewhat sitting at -6.8 C | 19.76 F. We could see some flurries throughout the day. Highway 522 at this time is bare and dry. Tomorrow things will warm up a lot with temperatures well above the freezing mark and we should see some sunshine, which will make it just that much better. The long range forecast is looking pretty good too, with temperatures staying on the warmer side of things. Today I will take things a bit easy. With that I am off to put a piece of wood in the furnace and will then have a cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day! GW

Morning Report March 10/2020

It’s a cloudy rainy day here in Port Loring, Ontario. It rained off and on for most of the night and by the looks of things it is going to continue on through the morning. Highway 522 is bare and wet. Travelling will be okay today other than the rain. Today I have some work to do around the house here which will keep me out of trouble. Temperatures were sitting at 2.1 C | 35.78 F. They will remain up there for most the day then we will see a cooling trend for a day then back to warmer temperatures. It’s going to be a roller coaster with weather this week. But we are into March. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a good day. GW

Morning Report March 9/2020

Nice looking day starting things off here in Port Loring, Ontario. The sun is shinning and temperatures are sitting at 3.5 C | 38.3 F. It’s nice to see them warmer temperatures. The barometer is falling and my old weather stick is predicting some heavy rain for later on today and through tonight. Which should get rid of a lot of this snow we have on the ground at the moment. Highway 522 is bare and dry for now, which will make travelling good. If you have to go anywhere this morning would be the best time to travel, or wait till tomorrow. We didn’t have any snow overnight. Today I will work away here on some projects I have to do around the house. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report March 8/2020

Another sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. It’s sure nice waking up to sunshine. Warmer temperatures will be with us today which will make it really nice for getting outside. I might even wash the car today. With our kind of roads things do get a bit messy at times. And it’s good to keep things cleaned up. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Today we will loose a lot more once things begin to warm up. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -0.6 C | 30.92 F. Not to bad. Highway 522 is bare and dry which will make travelling good. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will let the day unfold as it so chooses to do. Have a great day. GW

Morning report March 7/2020

Good morning. Hope you all had a great night. Looking outside things are starting off right with lots of sunshine. What can be better than that? Well … for me, warmer weather, along with that sunshine would be nice. Which we will get later on today, and tomorrow we could crowd the 50F/7C mark. Might even put my lawn chairs outside and soak up some of that Organic Vitamin D 3. LOL. Some have asked me, what I think they can do to help with this virus that is starting to spread here in Canada. Well …. looking back at all my notes relating to health, and from what I have learned over the years, I figure if you really want to help yourself and family, you should be taking at the minimum of 1000 UI of Vitamin D3 every day. Make sure it is Vitamin D3. The others are okay, but not as good. It’s to much for me to explain right here an now how it works, but it will help a lot. And of course wash your hands, and wipe down things in your home with a Good Wipe like Clorox Wipes, I don’t recommend Lysol wipes, as they can bother the sinus and other things, which could weaken the lungs. And don’t forget your door knobs and light switches around the home, and your handles and steering wheel on your car. “And if your feeling poorly stay home and get better.” Very Important. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, which will make travelling good. So, there you have it and for those that has sent me E-mails an asked, I hope this helps. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then will see what the day has in store. Other than lighting my wood furnace as it is cool this morning,with temperatures sitting at -11.9 C | 10.58 F. But it will warm up in a bit. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report March 6/2020

Good morning. Well we are still having a wee bit of winter by the looks of things. We did have some flurries overnight which amounted to around 2 inches or so. We are also in the midst of clouds this morning. We could see another inch of snow throughout the day, but I suspect that, some sunshine should break through as the day progresses. Which is fine by me, as I am ready for spring. After today things will warm up considerable. Above the freezing mark which will melt most of the snow we have laying around. Highway 522 is mostly bare and wet this morning. Travelling should be good later on today. Yesterday my wife and I went to town to pick up more supplies, as it is always nice to have a bit extra in case of need, living so far off the beaten path so to speak. The store were quite busy, but not so bad as you had to wait in line long. We also had a visit with our son while having lunch, and headed on home. Great day all way round. Nice to get out now and then as it breaks up the normal routine, which can get to being boring after awhile. Today I will do some work around the house here helping my lovely wife, and then will go from there. Just never know … as things change as time moves by. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report March 4/2020

Good morning. Great looking day out there waking up. The sun is shinning at the moment, but it will turn cloudy as the day progresses. We could see a light flurry or two, but nothing to write home about. Temperatures starting the day were sitting at -1.6 C | 29.12 F. Not to bad, and it will warm up a touch more in a bit, which should get rid of some more snow. We didn’t have anymore new snow overnight. Highway 522 is bare and wet, but travelling should be good. On another note I have been burning a we bit of wood these days, saving my oil. I can always tell how the winter went, heat wise by looking at my wood pile and so far it is looking good. Today I will be working away on some stories for my columns and magazines I write for, along with my Podcasts. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report March 3/2020

Good morning. A cloudy day here waking up in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at -5.6 C | 21.92 F. It will warm up more as the day progresses, which should get rid of a bit more snow. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning as it was all day yesterday. My wife and I did go pick up some supplies yesterday which took most of the day. But it was a nice day with sunshine following us all the way there and back. Stores are busy with folks stocking up, on things. Certain items are all sold out. Monday isn’t the best day to go to town we found, as they don’t restock the shelves till around Wednesday. But … we made out okay. We didn’t have any more snow overnight. Today I will work around the house here on a new Podcast and relax. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report Mar 1/2020

Well first day of March and we all woke up to sunshine here in Port Loring, Ontario. It is a wee bit cool with temperatures sitting at -14.1 C | 6.62 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward with temperatures hovering just about the freezing mark, which should start the snow to melt. Highway 522 is bare this morning for most parts. There are a few icy sections throughout, but travelling today should be good. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Total amount on the ground would be close to 1 foot. With that … I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report Feb 29/2020

Good morning. Well it’s not too bad of a morning other than being a touch cool, with temperatures sitting at -15.9 C | 3.38 F. But for us heat really isn’t an issue with us using the wood furnace. But in saying that wood heat does have its drawbacks as we all know. I actually don’t know how much longer I will be using it to heat with. I am slowly edging my way towards other avenues so to speak. We will see how it goes. Highway 522 is partially covered this morning with some icy sections throughout. But that is understandable, with all the snow we had the last two days. But it won’t last long, as temperatures will rise after tomorrow above the melting point. We didn’t have any more snow overnight. On another note my wife and I did manage to clean out our driveway yesterday. Seems every year things are getting a touch harder to do. But we both are getting up there in years. The main thing is, we have to learn our limits of what we can and cannot do. That’s where things gets interesting ha ha. Anyways, life is good for most parts, so not complaining. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report Feb 28/2020

Good morning. Well … it’s a cold morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures were sitting at -15.5 C | 4.1 F. It will warm up a wee bit as the day moves forward. But not much. Then on Sunday things will start to change for the good with temperatures rising above the freezing mark, and the long range after that is looking good. Highway 522 is snow covered this morning and I suspect will remain that way for most of the day. Travelling won’t be the greatest. The sun is trying to come out at the moment but I think for most parts, it will remain mostly cloudy for the rest of the day. On another note, our wood furnace is doing its job for the past day or so. I usually don’t use it if the temperatures are up near the thawing point, but when its cold as it is now, it sure feels good. The heat it throws off takes the cold right out of the body. With that, I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then if it warms up a bit will see about cleaning our driveway. Have a great day.

We are back to winter here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Over night we had close to 6 inches or so. It is still coming down and will continue throughout the day. We could see another 6 to 10 inches by tonight. Highway 522 is snow covered with some icy sections throughout. Not a good day for travelling and distance. Temperatures have cooled down also sitting at -11.7 C | 10.94 F. It will get a bit colder as the day progresses and even colder tonight. So with them temperatures I am off to light up my wood furnace and then have my morning cup of coffee. Today I will remain in the house here and relax a bit. Have a great day and if out stay safe. GW

Morning Report Feb 26/2020

It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. Temperatures are a touch cool sitting at -10.6 C | 12.92 F. Highway 522 at this time is bare and dry, but that will change later on this afternoon and into tonight. It does look like that a storm is tracking our way and we could see up to 12 inches or so of new snow before it has gotten it out of its system, late in the day tomorrow. So if your in need of things in town this would be the day to go get it. We didn’t have any new snow over night. Other than that not to much to report here this morning, so I am off for my morning cup of coffee. I might make a run to the dump, I have to check and see what I have waiting. Ha Ha. Have a good one and if out tonight and tomorrow take care when driving. GW

Morning Report Feb 25/2020

We all woke up to sunshine once again here in Port Loring, Ontario. Temperatures have cooled down some, sitting at -4.6 C | 23.72 F. It will continue to be cool until Sunday, then it should start to warm up once again. Which will get rid of a lot of snow. There is a storm heading in our direction which should make an appearance starting tomorrow night, or late in the day tomorrow. But as I say it all depends on which way it decides to go. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning which will make travelling good. We didn’t have any snow overnight. Yesterday and the day before with temperatures being up there we did loose about half of our snow. I would say we have around 6 inches or so left, a bit more in certain areas. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and then will do some things around the house here. There is always something to do owning a home. But in saying that, it is nice to own your own home. LOL Have a great day. GW

Morning Report Feb 24/2020

Good morning from Port Loring. Ontario. Great looking morning with lots of sunshine. IT will turn cloudy after a bit. Temperatures were sitting at -1.6 C | 29.12 F. It will warm up quite a bit as the day progresses. Which should get rid of a lot of snow. The only issue is that starting tomorrow we could see more snow in the amount of 6 – 8 inches or so. It all depends on which way the storm that is approaching us wants to go. Along with that, temperatures will drop some and remain a bit cool for the remainder of the week. But after that is out of its system, we will be back to some warmer temperatures. We can’t really complain as it is still February. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, so if your in need of a few things in the big city LOL this would be the day to go and get them. For us we are set for a few days. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and then do some work on my Podcasts and Columns. Have a great day. GW

Morning Report Feb 23/2020

Good Morning. More sunshine for us here in Port Loring Ontario, this morning. Clouds will enter into the picture as the day progresses. But on the good side of things, it will warm up a lot. Waking up temperatures were sitting at -3.2 C | 26.24 F. It will rise above the freezing mark as the day progresses. No snow overnight. Highway 522 is bare throughout which will make travelling good today. The only other issue with the highway is how rough it is. That is caused with the frost coming out of the ground and heaving things up in places. Things will settle down once we get closer to spring. But in saying that, care should be taken not to drive to fast as them bumps and things can take a toll on your vehicles suspension. On another note, I am thinking those that have ice huts on the lakes should be taking extra care these days, especially with these warmer temperatures entering into the picture. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife and will let the day unfold around me. Might wash the car and get some fresh air in a bit. Have a good day. GW

Morning report

Good morning. Well we are having our share of sunshine for the past couple days. This morning once again it is showing off, which sure makes the day feel more comfortable. Highway 522 is bare throughout which will make travelling quite nice today. We didn’t have any snow overnight. Temperatures waking up were sitting at -3.9 C | 24.98 F. So being so warm I won’t start the wood furnace this morning. As a matter of fact, I let it go out overnight. So today we will burn a wee bit of oil if necessary. Good to use it once in awhile, as in doing so it keeps things working properly. It’s like anything in life, use it or loose it. Today I am into doing some work around the house here helping my lovely wife. Then I will get back to my Podcasts and Newspaper Columns. On the good side of things, I would think a bit later on today we will see some snow melting as it will warm up a lot more than it is right now, and will continue nice into tomorrow. We could see temperatures reaching a high of 5 C/40 F. Hmm, if I find some time I might just wash our car. It’s kind of dirty with the roads being the way they are. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will let the day unfold around me.

Travelling will okay later on this morning. We didn’t have anymore snow overnight. Yesterday my wife and I did get most of our driveway cleaned out, but a friend was in the area and dropped by to see us. He had a plow on the front of his truck so he cleaned the most of it with ease. Worked out well. Today I am going to work away on some stories for my Columns and then will work on some more Podcasts I have in the works. Keeps me busy and in time I would like to have all my stories put into Podcasts. It will take a lot of doing, as I have over 2000 in total.

Morning Report Feb 19/2020

Lots of sunshine here this morning in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We didn’t get the snow they said or figured we would get through the night. Still … we will have to clean the driveway and things with what occurred yesterday. So, we will get our exercise once again. Highway 522 is pretty well bare throughout with a few snow covered areas. Travelling should be good though. We also should see lots of sunshine throughout the day which will make things nicer. Nearing the end of the week temperatures will rise quite a bit. We will then see some melting starting to take place. Temperatures were a bit cool this morning, but nothing like we did have a few days ago. Waking up they were sitting at -13.7 C | 7.34 F.
