All week our daytime temps are in the mid 20's or better. Feeling a lot like summer! Stick your toe in though, and only the most hardy will take it much further. The water's still in a state of spring. Those warm days we mentioned above are only half the story. The other half, the [...]

Bullet dodged. There was concern that later than usual ice out would have ramifications of a flooding kind. Not so this year! Exactly 12 months ago docks on Lake Muskoka were underwater and Rosseau and Joe were recording some of the highest water levels seen above the locks. The Muskoka River was raging and the [...]
