Ice Ice Baby

To say it has been an unusually mild start to the winter is an understatement. No snow for sliding, skiing, snow fort building (my favourite) or snowmobiling.

Outboards, Chainsaws and Televisions…Oh, My!

It is that time of year again. The temperature starts to drop, leaves change colour and people close their summer getaway for the winter. Some do it on Labour Day, some at Thanksgiving. But whenever it is that you ‘close the camp’, it means a return to work (boo!), return to school (yippee!) and a
