Good Morning! It’s a sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. There are a few clouds, but the sun is managing to show itself. Yesterday we had another 2 inches of snow, not enough to get my snowblower out. I will wait on that as it is very cold this morning with the temperature sitting at -18.6 C | -1.48 F. It’s the coldest morning so far this winter. Things were crunchy when I went out to put some wood in my shop stove. Highway 522 is bare and dry for most parts, with a few icy sections throughout. Travelling should be fair today other than putting up with the cold. It would be a good idea to put a heavy blanket in your car and keep your CAA number handy just in case. You never know what might happen in this part of the country. Yesterday I worked on a Christmas show for my podcast and will continue on with it today. It’s too cold to be outside today. I might bundle up and go for a quick walk around the paths I made on our property. For some exercise. I will see how ambitious I am later on. Other than that not much happening in and around town these days. Folks I suspect are getting ready for Christmas which isn’t that far off. It’s amazing how fast this year has gone by. With that I am off for a cup of tea with my lovely wife, and will then see what the day has in store. Life’s a mystery. Take care, stay safe and look after yourselves, family and friends. And most of all … stay out of the crowded stores and don’t have company come over. Talk on the phone or ?
Episode 51: Good morning folks. Today I have a story lined up for you … that I am hoping, won’t upset some female species. I suppose the only way to find out, is for you to give it a listen. If I might suggest … it would be in your best interest to listen right to the end. Have a great day, and stay safe.
Good Morning!. It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We haven’t seen any sunshine now for around three days. The temperature though, has remained quite warm for this time of year sitting at 1.4 C | 34.52 F. It will start to cool down some as the day progresses’s. We also have a storm watch, for our area, and those around us, starting tomorrow. Snow will begin Saturday morning and last into Sunday. The heaviest snow is expected Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning. We can expect 10 to 25 cm or 4 to 10 Inches. I have no use for the metric system, as all that did was cost us a bundle of taxpayers’ money, along with other things I won’t get into. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning and should remain that way for most of the day. I would think if you’re in need of some groceries, or? This would be the day to get them. For my wife and I we have all we need for a few weeks. Which is a good thing to have on hand in this neck of the woods. Yesterday I didn’t do too much. Taking it easy. I have been keeping my woodworking shop stove going though, as it is nice to go out there when it is nice and warm. It also makes it nice having all my equipment warm and ready to use when I feel the urge. LOL I suspect my snow blower will be getting another work out on Sunday when this storm is finished. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then see what the day has in store. You never know. “Stay safe, protect each other, Love each other… but I think it is best not to get together this year for Christmas,” If we all do that, things will be a lot better for everyone, after Christmas And Hey! It isn’t for ever.
Good Morning! It’s a cloudy cold morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The temperature was sitting at -7.9 C | 17.78 F. It will warm up but not much as the day moves forward. The good part is we should see some sunshine later on today, tomorrow and the next day. That will be a welcome change. It seems no matter how cold it is, if the sun is shinning everything is better. Highway 522 is bare and dry for most parts. There are some icy sections here and there, so care should be taken on the curves. On another note my wife and I went to North Bay yesterday to pick up some groceries we order online. That way we don’t have to go into the stores. It was a nice trip in and back home. It’s good to get out once in a while and breathe some new air. While there we visited our son from the parking lot at his apartment, dropped him off a few homemade dinners his Mother made for him, and then drove around a bit, just to take in what others are doing, virus wise. And from what I see it’s not good, as the parking lots around the stores were full, along with the stores. It was actually hard to find a parking spot to eat our lunch that my wife made for us before we left. I am not sure where folks minds are these days, as with shopping online and curb side pick- up what more could you ask for? Bars and restaurants that are allowing folks inside in my mind is a bad thing. I say if you have to eat, get take out. If you want a damn beer, pick up a case and go home and enjoy it. Heck!! You can buy a case of six for the price you pay for one or two, at a bar or restaurant. And the thing is we are so close to having a vaccine. Just one more month. If it was up to me, I would close everything down completely for two months. Airports, churches, you name it. Leaving only the stores open we need to survive. To me the help we need right now, is right in front of us, but a lot of people just don’t give a damn, and they will keep on thinking that way, until they are made to do what’s right. The powers that be, should have nipped in the butt in the very beginning and stuck to their guns. If they had done that, it would have become a part of our life like some other countries. It wouldn’t have been nice, but we would have gotten by saving a lot of people from dying. Anyways, that is my rant for this morning. LOL With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife, and will then get to doing some woodworking, in my shop today. Take care, stay safe and do what’s right, to ease this virus from spreading.
Good Morning! It’s a cloudy morning once again here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We are having some rain mixed with a bit of ice at the moment. I don’t suspect it will amount to much and it should be a pretty nice weekend. Highway 522 is bare at this time, but there are some icy sections here and there, so care should be taken, if out and about. The temperature isn’t too bad neither for this time of year sitting at 1.4 C | 34.52 F. If the temperature drops a touch we could see around an inch of snow. As I said in other posts, I don’t suspect we will be having a real cold winter this year. We could see some snow though, but that all depends on how the storms track. At the moment they look as if they might by-pass us. Time will tell, as no one, not even the scientists really know what Mother Nature has in store. Now If you’re wondering, how these scientists really predict the weather. Read this bit of information below.
A Native American asked his chief about the coming winter.
“How bad will this winter be?” He asked.
“It is good to be prepared. Get some firewood ready” replied the chief.
The chief then called his friend in the national weather service to ask him. ” How bad will this winter be?”
The meteorologist said “this will be a pretty cold winter”
The chief then told his people what the meteorologist said. A few weeks later the chief called to ask again, just to be sure.
“Well,” said the meteorologist, “its gonna be worse than we thought this year.”
Again the chief relayed this to his people and told them to pile more firewood.
Right before the winter came, the chief called the meteorologist once more to ask, “how bad will this winter be?”
The meteorologist said “it’s gonna be worse than we thought”
The chief thanked the meteorologist and asked him “how do you get such accurate information?”
“Well, we have teams of scientists that study patterns to predict what the weather will be like. But we found that the most reliable method is to just look at how much firewood the Native Americans have put away.”
I would have to say that is about right! LOL
On another note, I did do a wee bit of work in my woodworking shop yesterday. For one lone woodworker, I can sure make a mess. But … it is nice and clean, ready for the next project. And I do have some work to do, I just need to find the energy LOL. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife, and will then see what develops for the rest of the day. Take care, stay safe and do what’s right for yourself, family … and friends.
Good Morning! It’s another cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario Canada, Along with that we are also getting some rain. It’s not that cold yet with the temperature sitting at 3.6 C | 38.48 F. It won’t warm up much more today. Things are about to change though, as we will be getting some snow, which will be heavy at times, and then blowing snow will begin tonight or Tuesday morning and continue into Wednesday. We could see about 15 to 30 cm or around 11 inches or so before things ease off Wednesday afternoon or evening.
On top of all the snow we could see some wind gusts up to 70 km/h – 80 KM/h which will cause some blowing snow to occur Tuesday and Tuesday night. So I am thinking travelling won’t be too good for the next few days. As of now Highway 522 is bare and wet. On another note I did get my snowblower out this morning and working along with bringing in some firewood for the shop and lit it. So it will be nice and toasty in there, keeping things warm in case they are needed. Like the Generator, chain saw, things like that, and … my snowblower starts easier when warm. Today I will clean up my shop some since it is nice and warm out there and then will work on another podcast. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife, and will then see what the day has in store. You never know. Take care, and stay safe.
Good morning! It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. A real gloomy day actually, looking outside. The temperature isn’t all that bad though sitting at 3.6 C | 38.48 F. And it will warm up even more, as the day moves forward. Not to shabby nearing the end of November. We will also see some rain in the morning hours. Tomorrow however we should see some sunshine for a change. Which will be nice. Highway 522 is bare and dry so far this morning so travelling will be good throughout. There isn’t much traffic these days with a lot of folks staying home. Which is a good thing I am thinking. On another note I finished up another Podcast yesterday and will continue on with another today. So with that I am off for a cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then see what the day has to offer. Take care and stay safe.
Good Morning! Well … it’s a snowy morning once again here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. I would say we had around three inches overnight. Not so bad, and with the temperatures rising as they are, it will melt fast. I did clean my deck off for the first time this morning, so I could get to my bird feeder. LOL Every morning the birds line up on my railings on the porch looking in … asking … where is the grub? LOL Seems that way anyways. The temperatures this morning was sitting at -1.4 C | 29.48 F. It will warm up a lot as the day progress’s, and will remain warm for the next 4 days. Kind of nice for this time of year. Highway 522 is bare and wet this morning, which will make travelling pretty good. Not that my wife and I have anywhere to go these days. But others might. Yesterday I finished off a Podcast I have been working on, and will get into another today. I enjoy doing them, and it seems a lot of folks enjoy listening to them … with all the reviews, phone calls and Emails I have been getting. Which … makes it all worthwhile. So with that, I am off for a cup of tea with my lovely wife and will add at touch of Nesquik to it, and maybe a piece of toast from some homemade bread my wife and I made yesterday. Yep you heard it right, that woman of mine put an apron on me … and told me to go to town. I made two loaves … so now we will see how they taste. LOL They will either be tasty, or … we will have two door-stops. LOL Have a great day, and stay safe. This virus is getting much worse.
A great video that everyone should watch.
As my Son says, who is a Technologist: It’s all true, always be careful clicking links in emails, and only put your usernames/passwords into sites you went to … manually. Thanks Karl! Great advice!
Good Morning. It is a cloudy cold day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The temperature was sitting at -8.4 C | 16.88 F. It won’t warm up much more than it is right now. Tomorrow however temperatures will start to rise. We are also having some light snow. Highway 522 is bare and dry throughout. Here in the north you just never know what might develop in the winter time. Being so cold outside I kind of figure it is a good day to stay inside. Not much happening around town these days. Most all the hunters have left our area, as well as the city folks that were here in the summer. A lot of cottages weren’t opened this year with the virus. Let’s hope this vaccine does its job which I hope will take the edge of things. I am thinking though it will be a long time if we ever get back to where we used to be. But there isn’t much we can do about it, other than take precautions. Along with that, some businesses will have to close, and those will have to come up with different ways of making ends meat. If it isn’t working out, there isn’t much a person can do but move on. Hanging around hoping for things to get better … isn’t the answer. For most of my life I have been self-employed. Some adventures worked out well, some not so good and that is when I made the decision to move on to other things. One door closes a couple more opens they say. And I believe that to be true. That is if you’re a go getter. My opinion only. Take it for what it’s worth. With that, I am off for a cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then get to work on another Podcast. Take care, stay safe.
