March has lived up to the cold windy departure of winter. Temperatures above freezing and mild just to plummet to more than -20 C at night and then a cold week for March Break with temperatures cold day and night but we are having some sun. The cold makes it possible to walk on the snow in the woodlands and throughout the trails without snowshoes which my dogs are thoroughly enjoying.
Visitors to the area are enjoying ice skating at the various outdoor venues in the many Villages of Almaguin. There is also skiing both downhill and cross-country. Families are enjoying their children getting to know their cousins staying for the week while off school. Ice Forts, Snow Sculptures decorate the lawns and school yards with interesting pieces to admire.
Other visitors are here to take the opportunity to view properties so they may make a purchase before the many buyers flood the area looking for a cottage or home as spring arrives. With listings limited it is important to discuss what features are a priority so the REALTOR the buyer is work with will screen the properties most suitable and make obtaining the right property possible.
