First "heavy" Frost

Yesterday morning we woke up to the first heavy frost of the season.  It was the first time I had to scrape ice off the windows of my truck.  This is a photo of the frost/ice patterns on the hood of my truck.

Jewel of the North

The Jewel of the North golf course went bankrupt a few years ago.  Here is how one of the par 3 holes looks today.

Redbridge General Store

This is one of my favourite stores.  You can buy gas, milk, candy, lotto tickets, smokes, bread, some boxed and canned food products, pop, candy, hardware items (nails, screws, plumbing stuff etc), fishing tackle, bait, AND beer, some cold, and liquor and wine.  Only in Ontario, eh?  Meanwhile our provincial politicians keep telling us they are not going to permit beer and wine to be sold in grocery and corner stores because, since the government of our province acts like our  parents and knows what's better for us than we do, it would be abused and under-aged folks may acquire some of the nasty stuff.  Well, it works in Redbridge and countless other small community stores in Ontario.  So what gives?!?!

Cedar Logs

These Cedar logs are destined to border a garden in the Compound after a bit more seasoning.
