First day of spring and with it almost 15 cm of snow and a little excitement too. A fuel transport jackknifed in the centre of Port Carling, spilling some of its load. The main road was closed for hours whiloe Hazmat did the cleanup. People travelling to Glen Orchard, Bala and Lake Joseph from Bracebridge had to detour – not just around the block. Around a lake – either Lake Muskoka or Lake Rosseau – adding at least 40 km to the journey. Some people didn’t get to work and kids travelling to highschool got the day off. Welcome to spring!
