The Overview

We are through with the snow fore today. Sunny and chilly but not as cold as yesterday. The winds are not dragging moisture out of GBay and dumping it on us fore a few days. The weekend looks warmer compared to the last few days and clear with no big fronts yet. They do seem to form up rather quickly though.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -19C(FL -26C) and it will rise to -9c (FL -10C) in the afternoon and then drop back to -12c (FL -18C) overnight. Moderating a wee bit.

The winds are from the NE at 6kph this morning and will increase in speed to 10kph while swinging to the SE this evening. This will bring more moderate temps. They will rotate through to the SW tomorrow, bringing more moderate temps.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:51AM, Sunset – 4:37PM. We are oh so close to 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 a busy around Muskoka and in the snow-stream alley between GBay and Lake Ontario. They should be cleaned up early this morning and resting later in the day.

School Bus Status

No cancellations at this point. But this report is written before 6AM daily. 

Course Update

All sorts of excitement in the hood as a Hawk Owl has been spotted on our property. A rare sighting!

Golf is infectious – why wait for the next 114 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.
