The Overview

Hello 2020 – what weather vision do you have fore us this year? The snow is upon us until around noon today when it will start clearing to the East. We will then have clear radar until Friday when it might warm again, bringing light rain to the region. There is still a snow squall warning for Muskoka and surrounds, so driving is still challenging with sudden loss of view in a squall.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(FL -5C) and it will fall to -1c (FL -6C) in the afternoon and then fall to -4c (FL -9C) overnight.

The winds start from West at 15kph increasing gradually to 20kph til late today when they will shift to the South and dropping in speed to 7kph. They will remain like this tomorrow.

Daylight Hours

Sunrise – 7:55AM, Sunset – 4:45PM. The day is lengthening by seconds daily – we have gained 46 seconds of daylight since Winter Solstice. The sun starts setting later – by one minute every day on average. The sun will rise about the same time. Around Jan 8th, the rate of change will increase and the sun will rise earlier, and set later through til June. Yay!

Road Report

The plows remain out to deal with snow streamers across the province. They should be able to rest late today as the snow moves well East.

School Bus Status

School bus report – enjoy your break educators, students and bus drivers!

Course Update

All sorts of excitement in the hood as a Hawk Owl continues to inhabit our property. A rare sighting!

Golf is infectious – even if Muskoka courses are closed for the next 99 days. But why wait for Spring. The hi-def indoor simulator is operating and starting to get some good play. The smiles and chatter all indicate a great time. Our simulator league has started and is ready fore you to join. Everyone plays one round on the same course every week through the end of March. Prizing, skins – the game is the same, but the walk is shorter. There is still time to join!

This freezing rain will be a wee challenge fore us to handle. Initial inspections show that most of the rain froze on top of the snow and did not migrate to the playing surfaces. This is good as the grass has some insulation and still oxygen to breathe through the next 90 days.

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.
