The Overview

One major storm done, more to come during the next 80 days. Yes we are cruising towards Spring now. We just have to survive Winter! And yesterday was a test of our resolve. Today the snow will continue through until around noon and then clear the area. It will be a bit more sporadic and less intense. The temps will remain chill until Tuesday. These winds would bring more snow if the temps were not so cold – small mercies! We will get back into workable temps soon, and likely more snow. The days are getting longer as we head fore Spring!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -11C(FL -18C) and it will rise to -10C (FL-17C) in the afternoon and then drop to -20C (FL -26C) overnight. Perfect snow weather.

The winds are from the North and continue at just under 15kph fore the day and into tomorrow when they will shift slightly to the NW. This is ideal fore more snow off GBay, but the radar is saying no at this point.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:49AM, Sunset – 5:06PM. We have gained 119 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice.

Road Report

The plows are out throughout Ontario as the storm continues to drop snow on random regions, including Muskoka Parry Sound. They will likely take a good part of the day to get their job done.

School Bus Status

School bus report – no cancellations as the busses are tucked away fore the weekend – lucky them!

Snowmobile Report

There are 81 days til green grass. It is snowing. The driveway needs to be cleared so you can get out later. You are watching golf on TV. The golf bug bite needs to be scratched.
