The Overview

The radars are getting ugly. We are seeing a counter-rotating low moving towards Ontario with the front of the storm being rain and freezing rain, and the tail being snow. The major front coming up the Ohio Valley is going to reach Muskoka tomorrow before noon, and it will bring rain, freezing rain and then more rain through til Monday sometime. It will change to snow overnight on Monday into Tuesday. There is a special weather statement for the region. Caution advised fore the next few days.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -2C(FL -4C) and it will rise to -0c (FL -5C) in the afternoon and then fall to -1c (FL -8C) overnight.

The winds are from East at up to 20kph for the next 24 hours. They will shift to the SW tomorrow morning, maintaining speed and continuing to bring in the wild weather.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:55AM, Sunset – 4:43PM. The day is lengthening by seconds daily – we have gained 33 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice. The sun starts setting later – by one minute every day on average. The sun will rise about the same time. At this point, the sun will rise earlier, and set later through til June. Yay!

Course Update

All sorts of excitement in the hood as a Hawk Owl continues to inhabit our property. A rare sighting!

Golf is infectious – why wait for the next 104 days to play. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Our simulator league starts December 1 – with 3 practice rounds before the new year. And the one round on the same course for everyone every week through the end of March. Prizing, skins – the game is the same, but the walk is shorter.

There is a wonderful blanket of snow on the course which will could be its layer of protection with this changing weather. More snow today is better fore the course. We need a lot to absorb the January melt that happens every year.

The Simulator is Open!

When the golf bug bites and you can’t find a tee deck open anywhere, what do you do? You head to Muskoka Highlands where we have a state of the art hi-def simulator at the ready fore your game. With over 20 courses, we have a course fore everyone. And if you want a gathering with golf involved, we have all sorts of games on the simmy that your entire group can play. Where do you think we have taken you fore this hole?

The Dogs

Dog Update – Wizard is home til Jan 2nd. It is great to see how he is doing – as he trains in the Autism Assist program. The trainers love him as he is so huggable!

We have heard from Angus and his owner Bill – great story that we will tell in the new year. Ancaster (Ellis) is hosting a major fundraiser in March. And Gavin continues to impress his new owner.
