John's perfectly Snow-Blown paths to Squirrel Town πŸ˜ƒ

John and I are not snowmobilers. But EVERY day we walk our trails, with pockets FULL of peanuts. We call all of our Squirrels (About a dozen of them), and they come running for their peanuts. We also hand feed all of our Chickadees and Nuthatches. The Blue Jays, Canada Jays, and our Pet Ravens, Barney and Mrs Barney, always join us in the fun!! πŸ₯œ

December 1, 2019

Another of our neighbouring Vacant Motels went up in flame.  When we bought our place in 1999, our Motel neighbours were all open. The Wild Goose (1 km south) is gone now. The Lakewood Motel (4 kms north) is gone. And now the Pinewood Motel is burned. The Wild Goose advertised rooms for $29.95 in it’s last season, and the Pinewood was selling $40 rooms.. Cheap Rooms in Rural Locations, will only pay for the plywood to put over the windows 🏚

November 22nd Racoon

It's going to be a Polar Vortex kind of winter. And to think when we bought the place in 1999, we thought Global Warming would bring us Palm Trees. 🀣

I can’t take a photo of the Snow Gauge without our pet, Bobby, landing in the tree, waiting for his peanut.Β 

So I combined his pic and today’s snow gauge pic in the GIMP program. πŸ˜€

November 4th, 2019 - The Canadian Snow Gauge is Stacked!Β 

Wawa's Canadian Snow Gauge Northern Lights Motel

November 4th was an exciting day – Not only did I stack the Snow Gauge, but we had a late visitor 😲 A Juvenile Rose Breasted Grosbeak.Β 

Carter Dorscht, our Algoma Area Bird Expert, says, “This would represent the latest ever record of Rose-breasted Grosbeak in the Algoma District. eBird shows a record for October 21. Nice find!”

Remember folks, always check the OFSC website to see which trails are open. And check Facebook for Gord’s Wawa Snow ReportΒ (The best, up-to-date information on Trails and Boondocking conditions in Wawa), and The Groomer Guy in Dubreuilville, for his updates, Pics, and new this year – A Podcast πŸ˜ƒ
