Well, there’s no denying that spring is here, though Mother Nature seems to be slightly uncertain as the temperatures flit upward in the normal range and then flutter down, slightly below normal. (This applies to both the high and low temps this week.)  Though the calendar assures us that it is indeed spring, in truth we are beginning the transition between winter and spring and so will continue to experience weather that can best be described as ‘unpredictable.’

Happy spring and Hi to all from the back of my car which is parked next to a Mickey D’s in Frederick, MD! Gotta love that free wifi.(Of course I had to have a cheeseburger and orange drink, too–I’m not a mooch!)  Been here all week without <gulp> high speed Internet but I’m determined to not miss my weekly report of what’s happening in the highlands as well as some gorgeous Ontario photos and the 14 – Day Weather Outlook for the Haliburton Highlands. This post will be a bit quick and dirty as they say, but just the same it is all activities–many fundraising this week–that I think think you’ll glad to know  about.

The weather this first full week of spring  is going to be almost completely seasonal, mostly a tad warmer than normal highs and notable lows that will be higher than normal. Be sure to check it out below.

I would love to visit this spot on Mulligan’s Bay and see one of  it’s sunsets live and in person. Unless it is raining. They have a beautiful sunset every night of the week on this area of the Chapleau River.

I can’t think of a single thing to say about the 14-Day Weather Trend for West Guilford/ the Haliburton Highlands. It looks yucky.

Maple Syrup Harvest

Maple Syrup Harvest

A funny thing I just realized –and it’s not that there is nothing yummier than pancakes with fresh maple syrup (see above). No, what I realized is that I taught my son to pronounce the word syrup, the way I way I was taught. Despite him being 100% Midwest American he pronounces it “seer-up.’ Here in the Chicago area (and maybe the rest of the country–not sure), it is  pronounced ‘sir-up’. As I said, it is indisputable that no matter what you call it, genuine maple syrup is one of the yummiest taste sensations you’ll experience!

Awesome shot of the ice plates breaking up, but what is just as neat is the next shot of a boat having it’s blue tarp removed. Not a second to waste once the waters have ‘defrosted in getting our beloved boats back on the open waters!

Despite Kincardine being a bit of a distance from the Haliburton Highlands, what’s happening there will soon enough begin in the Highlands. Take a look at the warming going on in the Long-Term Haliburton Highlands Weather forecast:

Long Term Haliburton Highlands Weather forecast:

Daytime highs are above freezing for 4 of the six days, with 3 of those days significantly above freezing. The rain too, is a sign that we are moving from winter into spring.

Finally, here’s a peek at the extended 14- day weather forecast for the Highlands or as I’ve taken to calling it: the new normal.

There’s no denying that the low temperatures for this entire winter have been significantly higher than normal with most of the high temperatures staying in the roughly normal zone. What this will mean to life in the spring/summer/fall in cottage country, I really have no idea–but I’m curious to find out!

Maple Syrup Harvest

Maple Syrup Harvest

Tapping Sugar Maples is a guaranteed good, if not slightly sticky time.  Maple Syrup Harvest traditions continue as  sap is gathered wearing snowshoes, carrying the harvest in bucket and boiling down the sap on a wood-fired evaporator.
