2012 Disaster

  YouTube Video of the Breaking News  It was a wild Ride!! I took a photo of our newest (10 Room) Building was underwater. The barn and both chalets were underwater (set in a lake), as the highway acted like a DAM. The water eventually busted through the highway, and turned into a raging river. I had to call 911 and tell them they had to close the highway. This photo made it into CTV’s Top Photos of 2012!!   Of course I had to draw a cartoon Continue reading →

Wawa Snow Gauge (Feb -April)

The Snowmobile Trails are closing quickly! You MUST check the OFSC WEBSITE and TRAIL GUIDE before you venture on the trails. He’s started on the second case, and getting pretty tipsy!!   Oh Oh… Somebody is drinking the Snow Gauge!   There were a THOUSAND birds in the backyard, so I recorded them. (It was CRAZY!)  Enjoy! We’ve had 3 Cases of Snow buried on March 31st many years – March 28, 2018 March 26, 2018 – We are in a Snowfall Warning for Continue reading →

Wawa Snow Gauge (Jan 11 – 31)

Still 2 Cases buried in Wawa, with amazing Trails to ride! I did a search for January 20’s, and a few old photos came up. January 24, 2013 Canyon Cam – 4 Cases Buried during the Ice Age of 2014! I forgot my Camera cord in the Soo, so I can’t take photos. But the videos are so much better than the Snow Cam! I was in Sault Ste Marie for a few days, visiting my Mom and Pop. But had to avoid the freezing Continue reading →

Mo’s Cartoons & Comical Hotel Experiences

*Life literally abounds in comedy if you just look around you  ~ Mel Brooks* Need Some Furniture?  In 2000, two young fellows driving a U-Haul, asked if they could see a room. (In the early years, without Online Reviews, many people asked to check the rooms first to make sure they were clean). I happily handed them a key, as I clean the rooms myself, and I was confident that they would stay. After looking at the room, they came back to the office and Continue reading →

Wawa Snow Gauge (Dec 1 – January 4)

 26 Years ago today, January 4, 1992, we were tired of being happy… so we got married! LOL!   Here’s a collection of January 4th Photos that come up on my computer when I type in “Jan4”. It’s probably a good thing that I didn’t save 20 years of digital photos under the date. I’d have a thousand pop up a day!  But a few of them were saved by date, and it’s always a surprise as to what comes up… Jan4billy – Cute Billy Continue reading →

Lake Superior Photos

When we close the Motel for the Season, I LOVE driving to Sault Ste Marie to visit my wonderful family and friends. Driving through Lake Superior Park is a dream in summers. I try to swim in every bay possible. In Winters, it’s like driving through a beautiful Christmas Card. I always tell people about when I lived out West for 20 years, each time that I drove across the country, tears would run down my cheeks once I hit Lake Superior Park and Old Continue reading →

Before and After Photos

Finally!! September 2017 – It took 5 years before I could make a Proper Before and After Photo of our business after the Disaster.   Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves when we think about having our Entrance back!! After the Flood, the MTO didn’t rebuild our entrance. The damage to the land was so great. The fill that was needed was incredible!  The culvert was overwhelmed (As were all the culverts around Wawa), and every highway was closed. Wawa was an island. The MTO Continue reading →
