Dec 6, 2018 (only Β½ a case buried)

The first Yellow (Limited) trail of the season is in Cochrane!

Always check the OFSC Trail maps to see when the trails open.Β 

December 1, 2019 – Always remember that just because there is snow, it doesn’t mean trails are OPEN.Β 

Trails in the north aren’t on roads. Wawa Lake is the D Trail. Lakes and swamps need to freeze. Bridges need to be made. Trails need to be brushed and cleared of fallen trees. The trails need a good “SAFE” Base.Β 

Volunteers work hard trying to prep the trails for the Season. It’s very early. And do everyone a favour and don’t ask silly questions like,Β  “Will the Trails be open for the Christmas Break?”Β  No one knows. Groomer Break-Downs, Warm-ups, snow conditions… No one has a Crystal Ball. Just watch the OFSC Trail map, and when the trails start turning green, then it’s time to Ride! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Canadian Snow Gauge, November 23rd.

I was photographing the Mountain Ash Berries and this little guy came up and asked what I was doing. 😁

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˜€

Meet Peetie! He’s a cartoon Character that I created. He’s the narrator of a book that I’m working on, “My Friends In Wawa”. I made his face in the shape of a ❀️

Old Drawing programs became obsolete, so now I’m learning how to work with GIMP. I find it a fun challenge, and am making progress. I was able to put a date on today’s photo. (Yay! LOL!) I laughed hard yesterday when I read a comment on a GIMP video that said, “Gimp is a great program for anyone that wants to spend all day learning how to create a box.”  πŸ˜‚

We received another 6 inches of snow (at least), and I will be spending the day shovelling decks and roofs. The Highway is Closed. I’m now dreaming of a Caribbean vacation with friends in February! 😎🍻

Wawa Canadian Snow Gauge Nov 8

Nov 6 –Β I opened the window early this morning and Bob & Eric came to greet me. Bob wants his peanut and Eric is telling me his food dish is empty. πŸ˜…

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

When I first stacked the Snow Gauge, in the early years, 2003 – 2008, our restaurant was open, and I had a lot of different cases to choose from.Β 

But now? John drinks Blue, and I drink Coors Light, so this is whatcha get. 😝🍻

2019 Canadian Snow Gauge Wawa

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
