Spring. We think of daffodils, crocuses and robins. So far in Muskoka we have robins. This past week saw up to 10cm of snow and, with -10C lows at night, more ice. Bracebridge Falls is a trickle and the river is low pending the onslaught of melt we'll see in the next 3 weeks or [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: March 27, 2019 Although we're still 'making ice' (it was -14C last night), we're expecting above freezing highs for the last half of the week. Snow and ice are slowly disappearing. We have to be patient. Spring is on its way! Slower is better.... It's kind of like buying a cottage. You have to [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: March 20, 2019 The last couple of weeks have cleared snow from sidewalks, driveways and lawns in most of the Golden Horseshoe. We were there on Sunday and heard robins singing. Definitely early spring in the city! Cottage Country is more like late winter. Snowbanks abound. Last week's rain has turned those hills into [...]

Although we have a short burst of warmer weather this week, Friday last saw the first frost in Muskoka. The forests responded and our hillsides and shorelines are resplendent in the reds and golds of autumn. The next 10 days will be glorious and just in time for Bala's annual Cranberry Festival all weekend long. [...]

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 [...]

Spring is officially here. We know by the date, by the Cottage Life Show having come and gone, The Muskoka Spring Art Show was held last weekend and Muskoka Highlands says 3 nights of 8C weather and the course is open. We also know it's spring because the roads are heaving as frost departs, some [...]

Muskoka MarketWATCH: 22 February 2018 Gravenhurst, Port Carling and Bracebridge have all enjoyed celebrating winter in Muskoka since our last Marketwatch. Bracebridge closes the main drag, trucks in snow and creates a huge toboggan run right down through the centre of town. Fun! In their own ways other Muskoka communities aren't outdone either. Winter in [...]
