Morning Chat Nov 30/2020

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 morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The temperature is sitting at 2.9 C | 37.22 F. It won’t warm up that much more today. It will also remain cloudy along with a few lingering showers off and on. Tonight however things will cool down, and tomorrow we could see up to 3 inches of snow by the end of the day. But as I say. It is nearing the end of November, and so far we have been pretty lucky not having much snow. So with that in mind, I am thinking I will bring out my snowblower from my storage shed and get it running, just in case. I ordered a new set of snow tires from Kerry Booth’s Garage here in town, so I suspect he will be calling for me to bring my car down to have them installed in a day or so. Which will make things nicer this winter for picking up our groceries in North Bay. Great place to deal with. Highway 522 is bare and dry so far this morning. It should remain that way for most of the day. With that … I am off for my morning cup of tea with a scoop of chocolate, along with a muffin that my lovely wife made the other day. After that, I will see what the day has in store. Every day is a mystery. Stay safe and protect yourselves. Wearing a mask is the best thing you can do these days, when out and about. Listen to your instinct, not what others are trying to tell you.

Good Morning! Well it’s a sunny morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It is a touch cool though with the temperature sitting at -0.9 C | 30.38 F. It will warm up a wee bit, but not much. The snow we had has left us, but we did have a heavy frost overnight, which is making things a bit icy. Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning and there isn’t much traffic moving around. Mostly locals. Being that the weather has been kind of crappy I have been staying inside. I have lots to do, writing stories for my columns in newspapers, magazines and working on my Podcasts. Today I will do much the same. I will however get out for a walk for some exercise a bit later, once the ice has melted. We don’t need to slip and fall. Not much else going on or happening in our area these days. With that I am off for my morning cup of tea with my lovely wife and will then let the day unfold around me. Take care, stay safe and do what is best for yourself, your family, and others with this virus. It is getting a lot worse at the moment. Crowding in on us here in Port Loring. Not here yet that I know of, but close.
