Another crazy day on Monday. More sunshine than had been predicted, but a few thunderstorms too. A bit chilly for late June. Tuesday morning is once again in the high 40F range with lots of dense fog around. The bass were not biting early Monday, but started to hit later in the morning and the fishermen staying here said there was lots of great action the rest of the day. Seems we are in a pattern where anything goes as far as the weather is concerned and it changes every few hours.
Highway 62 was closed all day Monday just north of the Tim Hortons in Bancroft. The road was washed out when a beaver dam washed out and the debris blocked a drainage culvert causing run-off from the Eagles Nest Park area to run over the highway and wash it away. The road re-opened around 10PM Monday and will continue to undergo further repairs this week.

We are in normal summer time fire conditions. That means campfires specifically for cooking anytime, other burning and campfires for smores 7PM to 7AM.
Another Internet install to do on Monday. They have been going well with no need to climb tall trees or put holes in cottage roofs. Always nice when there is a good signal in a convenient place. To inquire about service please send us a message and we will see if it is available at your location. For seasonal residents the service is a flat $300 per year. (plus $200 installation the first year) Speeds have been creeping up for everyone as more advanced behind the scenes equipment gets installed.
