By: YohoLake, 1:23 PM GMT on July 30, 2011
Must make sure the sons-in-law are aware what day this is.... Raining hard at the lake this morning and supposed to get rain most of the day. The temperature at 10:20 a.m. is 16C (61F). Not a good day for our visitors from Ontario.

By: YohoLake, 2:33 PM GMT on July 29, 2011
Overcast at the lake today with a temperature at 11:30 a.m. of 23C (73.4F) with a westerly breeze. A good day to get some of the weeds taken care of that are taking over my garden.

Won't be taking my pants for their usual walk on the golf course today--raining in these parts. The temperature at 10:30 a.m. is 18C (64F) with an easterly breeze. The old lumberjack says that you know when you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

By: YohoLake, 1:17 PM GMT on July 26, 2011
Are you supposed to get presents from nieces and nephews? Cloudy and showery in these parts today. A good day to run some necessary errands. The temperature at 10:15 a.m. is 18C (64F) with calm winds. The old lumberjack says to never take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
Culinarians Day--Monday, July 25, 2011
By: YohoLake, 6:15 PM GMT on July 25, 2011
I wonder if this day is for those that prepare or eat culinary delights--I'm in the latter category. A warm day on the golf course, but quite a pleasant day. Back at the lake at 3:15 p.m. the temperatue is 26.5C (80C) with a slight westerly breeze.
Cousins Day--Sunday, July 24, 2011
By: YohoLake, 6:13 PM GMT on July 24, 2011
Lots of chance to see relatives (lots of cousins to our kids) this summer. A lot cooler (thankfully) in these parts today. A sun and cloud mix with a temperature at 3:10 p.m. of 22.5C (72.5F) with a northeasterly breeze. A good afternoon to do a bit of much needed gardening.

Ice Cream of any flavour would be appreciated today--hot an humid in these parts. The temperatures at 12:10 p.m. is 27C (81F) with lots of sun and high humidity. Doing a few chores around the place and getting ready to go for a swim.

Golfed in thirty celcius temperature this morning, along with high humidity--makes for a long round. The temperature back at the lake at 2:40 p.m. is 17C (81F) with a light westerly breeze. The sky looks like we might get a thunderstorm before too long.

Ugly Truck Day--Wednesday, July 20, 2011
By: YohoLake, 1:09 PM GMT on July 20, 2011
We saw lots of "Ugly Trucks" since last Thursday, as we covered a lot of kilometres (miles) during our trip to visit friends in Ontario. We arrived home late last evening after lots of golf, excellent meals and most enjoyable visits. Lots to be done at the lake where we are expecting a hot day into the 30's C. The temperature at 10:10 a.m. is 18.5C (65F), so better get at it while the temperature is still reasonable.
Fools Paradise Day--Wsednesday, July 13, 2011
By: YohoLake, 10:42 PM GMT on July 13, 2011
"Fools Paradise" describes my day on the golf course. The weather was great and so was the company, so shouldn't complain too much. The weather was great on the course and back home at the lake. The temperature at 7:40 p.m. is 21C (71F) with an easterly breeze.
Pecan Pie Day--Tuesday, July 12, 2011
By: YohoLake, 2:45 PM GMT on July 12, 2011
Overcast with sun breaking through at times. We had some much needed rain overnight--so saves me from watering the gardens. The temperature at 11:45 a.m. is 24C (75F) with a westerly breeze. No excuse for not finishing up some outside chores.
Cheer Up the Lonely Day--Monday, July 11, 2011
By: YohoLake, 6:17 PM GMT on July 11, 2011
A very nice day on the golf course, although quite warm and humid. The temperature back at the lake at 3:15 p.m. is 29C (84F) with a nice westerly breeze. The old lumberjack says that you can learn a lot about a person by the way he handles three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.
Teddy Bear Picnic Day--Sunday, July 10, 2011
By: YohoLake, 1:25 PM GMT on July 10, 2011
Daughter and family are camping, so guess grandkids could be having a "Teddy Bear's Picnic" of sorts.... Cloudy at the lake today with a temperature at 10:20 a.m. of 20C (68F) and supposed to warm up to the mid-twenties (mid-seventies) later this afternoon. A northwesterly breeze keeping it a bit cool.
Video Games Day--Friday, July 8, 2011
By: YohoLake, 7:00 PM GMT on July 08, 2011
I just finished 18 holes with the two oldest granddaughters (mini-golf that is)--much better than video games. A very pleasant day at the mini-putt and back here at the lake. The temperature at 4:00 p.m. is 25C (77F) with a westerly breeze.
Strawberry Sundae Day--Thursday, July 7, 2011
By: YohoLake, 5:01 PM GMT on July 07, 2011
It's strawberry season in these parts now, so a sundae would be quite appropriate on this nice warm day. The temperature at 2:00 p.m. is 24C (75F) with a westerly breeze.
Fried Chicken Day--Wednesday, July 6, 2011
By: YohoLake, 8:20 PM GMT on July 06, 2011
Hot in these parts today. Golfed in thirty plus (mid to high 80's) temperatures today. A swim in the lake certainly felt good when I got home. The temperature at 5:20 p.m. is 27C (81F) with a westerly breeze.
Build a Scarecrow Day--Tuesday, July 5, 2011
By: YohoLake, 12:26 PM GMT on July 05, 2011
That's something the grandkids want to do this week. They want a scarecrow to keep the birds out of their raspberry patch. Some high clouds and sun today at the lake. Temperatures to get into the high 20's (low 80's) as the day progresses. The temperature at 9:30 a.m. is 20C (68F) with a northwesterly breeze.
Country Music Day--Monday, July 4, 2011
By: YohoLake, 5:24 PM GMT on July 04, 2011
Happy Independence Day to our American bloggers. Hard rain this morning (and of course my golfing buddies went anyway and since I didn't want to be the wimp, so did I). Got wet on the golf course, but rain stopped after five holes, so not too bad a morning. The temperature back home at the lake at 2:20 p.m. is 22C (72F) with a westerly breeze under overcast skies.
Stay Out of the Sun Day--Sunday, July 3, 2011
By: YohoLake, 1:29 PM GMT on July 03, 2011
Staying out of the sun will be hard to do in these parts today if one goes outside. Lots of sun at the lake this morning with a temperature at 10:30 of 19C (66F) with a southwesterly breeze.
UFO Day--Saturday, July 2, 2011
By: YohoLake, 2:05 PM GMT on July 02, 2011
If we need a clear sky to see UFO's today, it won't happen. It's overcast at the lake at the moment, but maybe some sun this afternoon. The temperature at 11:00 a.m. is 23.5C (75F) with calm winds. The old lumberjack told me that he asked God for a bike, but knowing God doesn't work that we, he stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.
Canada Day--Thursday, July 1, 2011
By: YohoLake, 1:12 PM GMT on July 01, 2011
Happy Canada Day to all the Canadian bloggers--enjoy the celebration in your part of the country. Overcast in these parts this morning, but supposed to clear somewhat this afternoon. I sure hope so as we are hosting some of the lake neighbours to celebrate Canada's 144th birthday. The temperature at 10:10 a.m. is 19C (66.5F) with a northwesterly breeze.
