Drivers are facing fog, drizzle and freezing rain in different parts of our region today.

Some areas are reporting dense fog patches, with limited visibility at times.

There is also a risk of freezing rain – mainly over northern Bruce and Grey counties, including the Bruce Peninsula.

Over northern portions of the Peninsula, the freezing rain may last for several hours before changing to rain.

Highways, secondary roads, walkways and parking lots may become very icy.

Each year, we receive thousands of entries, and your photos continue to surprise and delight us. Everyone has a camera in their pocket these days, with the ability to automatically adjust to lighting and movement, or combine several photos into one great shot.

“My measure of success is asking, ‘Do I wish I took this photo?’ If the answer is yes, you know it’s a strong shot,” says Cottage Life photographer and contest judge Paul Orenstein. We love seeing the unique aspects of cottage and cabin life in your photos, but also the commonalities that bind all cottagers together.

Matt at Environmental Defence Gala 4

Wow, do we have a lot to share in this month’s newsletter! The Coastal Centre has been very busy collaborating with environmental groups along our shoreline to protect your lake.

I had the opportunity to attend the Environmental Defense Gala in Toronto. We have had a planning workshop with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, met with Conservation Authorities, Healthy Lake Huron and the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association. We have made presentations to several of your municipal councils, have met with Pine River Watershed Initiative Network and the International Joint Commission.  We are doing all this in an effort to link all environmental groups along our shore to create a cohesive effort to protect and improve the health of Lake Huron.
