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.

Things you should know but most don’t

A great video that everyone should watch.

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.

Good Morning! Well … we all woke up to a winter wonderland here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada this morning. I do see though, that we aren’t alone, as a lot of other folks have had snow too. But in saying that it is a sign of what’s to come, and it is almost the end of November. To be honest … I thought we would have had snow before this. But I am not complaining, as I am not a great lover of snow. But it is nice to look at LOL. Highway 522 is wet with a bit of snow here and there, but for most parts it should be still okay to drive on with no issues. For Ruth and I we got everything we need, so we don’t have to go anywhere. Actually … Kerry our friend who owns a garage here in town, nice fellow … is going to put a set of snow tires on our vehicle shortly, which will be nice when we get a lot of snow. I kind of figured, since the tires on our car now, are getting a touch wore out … it’s time LOL. It seems there is always’s something to take a feller’s hard-earned money. At any rate, with the snow on the ground I will be working inside on some more Podcast’s today, which will keep me busy. It’s nice to be able to do what ever we want. With that … I am off for some French Toast for breakfast. I will change that to English Toast LOL, with a touch of syrup. After that I will have a cup of tea, with a touch of chocolate with my lovely wife, and I will then let the day do as so chooses. Take care, stay safe and look after yourselves and others.

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. The temperature is sitting at -2.4 C | 27.68 F. It won’t warm up too much more than it is now. We could though have some snow entering into the picture today and into tonight. Which could amount to 2 or 3 inches or so. It kind of depends on which direction the snow tracts. Highway 522 is bare and dry so far and quiet. Which is a good thing. Yesterday we went to town to pick up some more supplies, as I am thinking there will be some hard times ahead, with this virus. As it is getting worse every day. And stocking up a wee bit would be a good thing. Pays to think ahead. All my life I have always had a back up plan, which in turn paid off many times. While there we visited our son in the parking lot for a bit, It’s always nice to see him. It’s just to bad we couldn’t spend some more time with both our boys. But safety comes first. We are working on the issue though, as once we finish up this cottage we worked on all summer, they will then have a place to come to, for a visit. That way we can be together, but apart LOL. But that won’t happen till next spring. After we visited our son and picked up our groceries along with a few other things, we headed on home. I have to say it was a nice day for a drive. It should also be noted that groceries are sure getting expensive these days. Everyone is trying to make an extra dollar. I can’t say I blame some of them. But there are those that like to overcharge us hardworking folks. While in town we also saw that Walmart in North Bay is or was closed, as someone started a fire in the clothes section. I guess they were trying to make a point about something. I have to say, there are sure some idiots out there today. All that these kinds of folks do, is make things just that much harder. They say it takes all kinds to make up this world of ours. I say we could do without a bunch of them. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will then get to working on another Podcast. I do have some great shows lined up for the coming months. Take care, say safe and do what’s right when it comes to your health, and others.

Good Morning! It’s a cloudy day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. We should see a wee bit of sunshine as the day progresses. I hope so, as it makes the day a lot nicer. You can’t beat the sunshine for getting folks outside wanting to breathe in some fresh air. At least in the country. LOL The temperature waking up isn’t to bad sitting at 9.1 C | 48.38 F. It will remain there for today. With all these clouds a feller is hesitant about getting out of bed. LOL Highway 522 is bare and dry this morning, along with hardly a car or truck moving around. Yesterday I worked all day on another Podcast and will do the same today. It’s nice to be able to work at home where it’s safe, dry and warm, with lots of food and coffee to drink. LOL Can’t beat that. On another note, we had a visitor at our bird feeder for the past few days, which was an old crow that hurt his wing. I would suspect it got hurt when we had that wind storm a few days ago. My wife and I fed him and things, and in about three days he was up and flying. Made us feel good seeing him get back to his old self. We enjoy watching the crows and other birds throughout the year. We feed them ever morning which keeps them coming back. With that I am off for some bacon and eggs and a cup of coffee with my lovely wife. I enjoy them every so often. They aren’t the healthiest things to eat, but in moderation, most everything is fine. Take care, stay safe, and do what’s right for you with this virus going around. It’s getting worse every day.
