Fast, Icy Flood Waters Apr 16/14

I have had several inquiries over the past week from clients wanting to view waterfront properties.  Many of my clients live out of area and no longer have snow on the ground and the trees are beginning to bud.  Caution is necessary for viewing waterfront properties in the Almaguin Highlands.  The Magnetawan River and all area waterways are high and running very fast with ice flows still in the surrounding lakes. The video from last year shows what can be expected in the next few days.

There are many lakes that still have solid ice however not safe to be out on.  If you are visiting the area please keep your winter gear and snowshoes or boats ready for hiking as there is still one to 2 feet of snow on the ground around cottages and woodlands.  When traveling the back roads throughout the Almaguin Highlands there are many frost heaves, so slow down, don’t rush, enjoy the magnificent views through theSpring snow hill countryside.  Great to see wildlife out and about in the area but please take extra care driving as they also are close to roadways and feeding stations after this long winter season.  Black Bear

Driving the Midlothian Road to the Village of Magnetawan yesterday I saw nine deer, one fox and a black bear in my short 30 minute drive.

About Louisa Moffit

I have been a REALTOR® for the past 21 years and love the area and communities I work in. When showing property or taking listings I always travel with my four legged companions. My clients and I enjoy their company when walking through the forest viewing pristine vacant property which they are interested in purchasing. My dog’s antics through the snow is also a source of amusement to everyone. Getting serious however… viewing properties throughout the area can be a daunting task without the expertise of a real estate agent who knows the area well. That is why I am your “Go To” REALTOR® for Undiscovered Cottage Country – The Almaguin Highlands
