Will it ever stop snowing????

It's hard to believe that it's going to be 25 on Saturday when it's snowing on Thursday. Enough all ready. This week if it's not snowing it's raining. Oh well it keeps the black flies away I guess.

It's pretty quiet around the old diner these days. I can't believe that April is almost over. The nice temps on the weekend may bring out some ATVer's. I hope to go on the High Country Mud Run this weekend. I have to be good though because I have to work on Saturday evening. No sweat I always behave as far as I can remember.

Other than some guy living under a canoe on the side of the rail bed there's not much new to report. Last week he upgraded his living quarters to a truck cap. There isn't a door on it but I suppose it's more shelter than the canoe.

Don't forget the diner mud run on May 2. It should be a fun day. Do you think I could get lucky enough for it to be 25 and sunny two weekends in a row. I think not.

For more information on the run or accommodations call us at 613-338-3043.

Have a great weekend and if you are in the area drop in. We still have entertainment on Saturdays from 5-8. We are old and can't stay up too late so we have to play early in the day.

If It's Easter It Must Be Spring Soon

The good news is at least it didn't snow this weekend.

Even though it is freezing cold with the sun shining all day it is a great weekend.

It's nice to see some of the cottagers back. There were a few ATV's out this weekend, not nearly as many as I saw head up the highway on trailers.

The rail bed is drying up nicely. There is still a fair amount of snow in the bush but it is still rideable.

We got about 6-8 inches of snow last Monday and sure enough two brand new machines were seen unloading at Birds Creek for the last ride of the season. Go figure!!

The lake is still frozen but trying to thaw around the edges and creeks. If it would go above freezing for a few days that would be a start. Little green things are trying to peek out of the garden but they are not getting to far.

I'm even starting to look forward to the black flies!!! But wait until they are out for a day or two and then I'll start whining about them.

Well better days ahead. It should be about 85 by August.

Keep in mind about the ATV run on May 2nd. It should be a great ride. If you are coming and need more info or accommodation call the restaurant and we will get you some numbers. 613-338-3043

I hope you all had a nice long weekend.

Back soon with anything worth sharing.
