Another in what seems like too many of these news posts in recent months: Irondequoit - Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Adele Weller, pre-deceased by her husband Bruce and son Glenn. Adele is survived by her children; Gordon (Bonnie) Weller, Debi (Rick) Wahl, daughters-in-law; Candi Weller and Linda Williams, grandchildren; Adam, Karen, Kristin, Lisa, Patrick and J.C., 5 great grandchildren, sister Barbara (Walt) Greenfield, brother-in-law, Donald Weller, also several nieces, nephews and friends.

Mrs. Weller was another of the moms on the lake in the 60s and 70s that treated us kids like one of her own. Many happy hours spent with Glenn, Gord and Debi at their cottage.
Not quite as nice a day on Sunday with clouds obscuring the sun most of the day. A few minutes of sunshine, but very few. The weatherman had the incoming storm pretty much right on. The temperature started to rise in the early evening and rain started around midnight. It has been raining lightly ever since. Looks like the heaviest rain will be later in the day today. Temperatures start to fall during the day Tuesday and the forecast is all over the place after that. Might rain more, might snow, might have freezing rain, or might just clear up. Guess the 8 inches of nice, fluffy snow that had been on the ground will turn to crusty ice by tomorrow. There is not much happening around the lake this time of year. The lake is frozen, (6 inches of hard ice with 2 inches of slush in front of the boathouse) but not safe for travel. The trails are closed to wheeled vehicles, so no more ATV riding. Old Hastings Snow Riders is set to begin grooming operations.
Saw on the GTA news this morning that reports of the 407 to the 35/115, and the 418 to Bowmanville opening today were correct. It is only 8 years later than what had been promised. The traffic in places like Havelock and Norwood will be daunting next summer.
OSM magazine will be sending an editorial and video production crew here this winter to do a feature about snowmobile riding in the area. It looks like they will be here March 3 - 6. This is mostly the same crew that was here in the summer of 2018 doing a similar project about ATV riding.
The Lodge will open for snowmobiling and ice fishing around January 31. The ice has always been good for travel by that time of the winter. We are booked full several weekends in February, but still have several weekends available.
The OFSC is advertising the availability of a trail map application for Android and Apple. It is not free, which is odd these days. Look forward to hearing from riders how the functionality of it is as the snowmobile season gets underway.
Not exactly in this neighborhood, but tourism related, the highway 49 bridge from Deseronto to Prince Edward County is scheduled for a full closure from December 13 through 15. (Note this is a week delay from what was originally scheduled) The highway 62 bridge in Belleville is the alternate.
