The sun came out long enough today to make the Lake enticing enough to swim in. It was really nice. The bugs here however are very thick and two horse flies set their sights on my son and me so we had to act as each other’s “watcher.” You know when a horse fly is nearby because they sound like small aircraft but they tend to dodge pretty well. I now have a huge lump just behind my left ear so something bit me–but I don’t think it was one of those guys.
The weather is as good as it’s going to get for our stay. The temps are never going to approach “normal” and more often than not there will be a chance of rain. I’ve found however that much like the spring rains in Southern California, just because it rains on any given day up here in the Haliburton Highlands, does not mean that half of that day won’t be just fine. Yes thanks, I would rather see the glass as half-full.
This is the long holiday weekend and I’m going to go over the weekend weather including Monday, and then let you read on for the full week’s forecast, plus the 14-day outlook as I too am on vacation.
Tonight–Friday night is fairly mild with a low of 53F. Sitting here now in the unheated living room is quite comfortable as the sun stayed out for over half the day, warming up the cottage.
Tomorrow–Saturday will have a high of 78F, sun most of the day with isolated showers in the afternoon. Evening should be clear and about 71F.
Sunday– Might be a good day to catch a matinee at the newly reopened Beaver Theatre in Minden. The forecast calls for a soggy day with a high of 71F.
Civic Holiday Monday — will have a high of 68F and isolated showers. Make it a good one!
