Road Report Jan 27, 2012

Hello Leech Lakers,

Its Friday; dark and gloomy, snowing quite heavily. It rained all day Monday which made the roads pretty icy, but with the snow today it will give us something for our tires to grip. They are calling for freezing rain today too but so far it has stayed away.

Friends sent us the attached photo of a sunset off their deck facing our cottage. We thought that it would brighten up your day as has ours to see what the sun actually looks like again. Thanks Greg and Maureen for sharing this beautiful shot. It is appreciated, we needed it.

We are out doing the roads and driveways, so keep an eye open for us.

We hope you all enjoy your weekend and drive carefully.

Why do you blow snow on the driveways travelling in both directions on the road? Is it possible to blow the snow into the forests on the opposite side of our cottages?

In the past I fulfilled the role of snow removal (snow blowing) for 4 years. My sympathies go to the current contractor in dealing with those who claim the road is never wide enough. This year, in fact, it is in excess of 120 inches width, the standard set by FOCA.

In addition there are times when weather conditions impede travel. The removal of slush is in fact detrimental to the blower on the plow.

I add a note of warning to snowmobilers (mostly visitors). Take note when travelling our lake road not to ride over the snow banks on the side of the road. It is extremely dangerous as rocks and tree stumps are now covered with snow.

Lets be grateful for the job done by our present contractor.
