The Overview

This is going to be quite the weather day. The wet storm is coming from the SW and will start impacting us at day-break. And it is going to be messy. There are seams of rain and snow headed to the NE. Western parts of Muskoka will experience rain and freezing rain. Central Muskoka will experience the trifecta – rain, freezing rain and snow – all before 11AM. Eastern Muskoka will likely just get snow. By 11AM it will change to just snow across Muskoka, and will move through and out by 9PM. Tomorrow the winds from the NW will bring streamers off GBay and leave snow in random areas in the lea of GBay.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(FL -1C) and it will move to +1c (FL -2C) in the afternoon and then drop to -8c (FL -16C) overnight. Wet of some sort today!

The winds start out of the SE today increasing in speed to 15kph swinging to the NW this afternoon. Tomorrow they will move to the NW and up in speed to 30kph.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:47AM, Sunset – 4:35PM. As we approach the shortest day of the year, the rate of loss of daylight slows, reflecting the slowing in the tilting of the earth away from the sun.

Road Report

The plows are out to the East, doing some clean-up work. With this weather approaching, they will be out in full force this morning.

School Bus Status

Course Update

Golf is infectious – why wait for the next 118 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. Time will tell. We are hopeful the cold front stays below Muskoka and delivers snow – not rain!

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.

The Dogs

Dog Update – Wizard is home from the 19th to Jan 2nd. It will be great to see how he is doing – as he trains in the Autism Assist program. 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.
