OK, well now we’re in it. Winter that is. Remember those warm thermals we just experienced 2 weeks ago? It was only a hallucination. The coldest measured temperature in the world, as of 6 a.m. today, was –43.1 C in Canada’s North West Territories. Muskoka is not far off at -37C this morning and that’s without the windchill factor. Brrr – Summer can’t come soon enough!
I had a chance to tour around Muskoka this past weekend during the unseasonably warm temperatures. The snowmobile trails are closed and in most places the ice has opened up on the lakes making it very dangerous. I stopped at Foots Bay where it was dead quiet and gazed out to Lake Joseph.
