bob, can u please give more details concerning the
Greetings, I live in Northwestern Ontario,surrounded
by the remains of the boreal forest. In a normal
winter, this year has been exceptional, the
temperature drop down to -40 C in summer they can rise
to +35 C. We have about 90 frost free. Snowfall is
usually quite heavy and the ground is covered until
mid-April . The last frost free day is around June 8.
Rain or snow is often accompanied by heavy winds and
storm warnings are not uncommon all year round. Forest
fires, both from lightening and human carelessness,
happen every year. This year could be a high fire
season due to the lack of snow, unless it rains and
the amount of rain we need can cause its own problems.
Lake levels are low.
