Click for Portage Southport, Canada Forecast

Today will see light sight snow witha northwest wind at 30 km/h (19 mph). The high will be -10C(14F).
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a 30% chance of flurries. as the wind drops to 15 km/h (9 mph). The overnight low will be -23C(-9F) with a wind chill of -25c(-13F).
I guess the winter duldrums have set in. I have no projects in mind and my daily walk with Abbey is getting to be the high point in my day. I think like Alleyoops I'll tempoarily close the doors. I'll be back come summer but will continue to lurk in the background.

Hi there,your comments has prompted me to register. I read your blog most days and have done so for years so please don't take a break. I am not from Canada - I live in Wales, Great Britain, but have family in New Liskeard On.

Oh, no, you don't. I can't go without my daily dose of the view from the Prairie. Besides, how will we keep up with Abbey if you disappear? That dog has fans, too, you know! LOL

I will say it looks a little nippy for a walk today. That below zero business just isn't on my list of things to enjoy. I get all unnerved if it gets below freezing.

Have a good day - and stay warm!

Hey buddy, during the last doldrums of winter a computer screen is a great substitute for sunlight.

Now we are going to have to fly both you and the Queen down. The wallpaper isn't finished and I have a ton of garden things to do. lol.

Tony, just because you don't have any projects ongoing doesn't mean we don't want to hear about your day-to-day goings on! You're interesting and fun enough, by yourself! Besides, if you go on hiatus, it means that Alley is going to pick on me and Mush more, so you have to stay on here and take it like the rest of us, lol!

Hi Tony, don't let the doldrums get you down. There is too much fun to be had even if its still cold outside. With your wonderful wit and work on your project, we would miss our daily fix of Plapman.

Because I have become an old fuddy duddy doesn't mean you must too. Spring will soon be here and we will be able to do things out in the warm sunshine. That is our problem right now...we need more sun and less snow and cold weather. Soon dear one soon.
