The Overview

Wizard imparts some quiet advice to Hendrik while the weather battle of the 45th continues. Alberta is coming to Winter’s rescue, partly. The wind shift will be the signal that The Clipper is on its way. The snow will stay mostly to our south so travel will be affected on Friday. The temperatures will remain close to zero or above, with the exception of a chilly Friday night, and will be Spring-like through to next Wednesday when they mimic Winter for a day. March – you always have a bag of weather tricks you like to open from time to time!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -3C(-8C) and it will scoot up to +2C (FL-0C) in the afternoon and then slip to -3C (FL -9C). Not quite Spring, but not deep Winter either.
Today the light winds are coming from the SW. Overnight they will swing to the SE and later tomorrow from the NE. This is warning of an Alberta clipper headed our way later today, but most of it will miss Parry Sound Muskoka.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 6:47AM, Sunset – 6:11PM. Love that the 6s carry us for the next few weeks! We are now in the final March to the 17th – equinox.

Road Report

Road report – there is minimal plow activity as the roads are showing as clear and black. However, this will change as the Clipper brings snow late today and into early tomorrow.

School Bus Status

School bus report – no weather cancellations at this point.

Snowmobile Report

OFSC is reporting 22023 km of open trails. The warmer temps continue to reduce the overall length of open trails by about 10% every day. It will be a clear day on the trails.

Ski Report

The Ski Hills remain in good shape fore Spring-like skiing. Most of the snow in the Clipper is going South of PSM. It is best to check with your hill to get their conditions directly from them. Detailed info at onthesnow.ca/Ontario.

Course Update

There are 35 days til green grass. Golf is this close – the heart will be racing knowing green grass is around the weather corner. The rain today will knock-down the snow-pack and the sun will still heat through the cloud cover. The winds will be lifting the moisture formed in the melt to speed the shrinkage. Your clubs will know this and will want to hit a ball. Do you? Is your game ready for the golf season? We know you are getting restless to golf with your friends. The golf bug bite will continue to itch and needs to be scratched. While getting warmer, it is still not warm enough to get outside and play. Nothing beats a few holes of golf with your family. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and ready fore you and your foursome. Or bring 8 and play a two-person scramble with 4 teams. Times are full today so book now for tomorrow! It is time to start getting the swing in shape fore opening day, or before you might be headed South fore a golf trip. Call the clubhouse 7056461060 to book your time.

The grass will be glad it has its snow covering in this chill. The melt has started to expose green grass. Mitch pulled this plug – no ice, green grass – great conditions waiting to see sunshine!!

The Dogs

Dog Update –Wizard graduated this week from the Autism Assist Program with a young man who lives in Belleville. They are truly a great fit. We met Wizard’s sponsors – the lassies who operate Green Capes – a magazine published with puppies as pics – a great buy -from any Lion Club. We were pleased that Wiz was very happy to see us. The only tears shed were the ones listening to the stories of the impact these dogs have on the entire families’ lives. They are as important to the caregiver as they are to their direct client. Well done Wizard – you are off to a great career! I did warn them that if he saw a golf cart, he would likely try to sneak onto the passenger seat.
