The Overview

Spring is close. Tuesday we start to get more light than dark and this is good. The temperatures remain in flux, keeping the melt at a reasonable pace, reducing the chance of flooding. The golf course is starting to show through. The roads are all in good shape with little chance of snow in the region until early Tuesday. The ski hills, while still with base, are closing due to Covid19 concerns. The snowmobile trails are closed due to conditions. And so we ride into the future not knowing when this group isolation will end. But the sun will shine and we all can walk about quietly keeping our exercise routines intact however possible. And golf will be a great platform fore this.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -8C(-13C) and it will rise to +3 (FL-1C) in the afternoon and then slip to -0C (FL -4C). And back into mild!
Today the winds start in the SE at 7kph continuing to swing directly to the South. Tomorrow they will swing to the West and up their speed to over 15KPH. The one thing certain about the wind – it changes direction every day.
