Well it seems like March weather (in like a lion) with freezing rain high blustery winds and overcast skies came a week early. Traveling has been a bit precarious the past week throughout the back roads of Almaguin with four days of school bus cancellations because of weather conditions. Events such as the Dog Sled races – cancelled, Drag at the Mag – cancelled…. BUT the Villages of Almaguin do not give up! The Katrine Winter Carnival is still on for March 2nd and with both inside and outside activities Mother Nature will not dampen the fun for visitors and locals attending.
This week a few Buyers have still braved the icy roads to come a view properties. Our
listing inventory is very low so buyers must understand if they wish to purchase in the area they have to come with the best terms in hand to make it happen. Buyers need to make sure they are pre-approved and have their down payment in place. They also need to work with a local Realtor® to get current information on the properties and heads up on those that may be coming on the market soon. My promise to you is that I am “Your Go To REALTOR® for the Almaguin Highlands” and I will do my best to help you get that important property, whether it is a home, recreational cottage/land or investment. Visit My Website and have a look at what listings I am featuring.The icy weather does give the landscape a whimsical look. My grandson Christopher, on the outskirts of Burk’s Falls, posed for a shot just in front of some pretty impressive ice formations. Some of these have melted in the last few days but there are still many on the rock cliffs throughout the region. My daughter Christine loves running…in any weather. On one of her visits to the Almaguin Highlands she braved extremely cold temperatures and icy road conditions but came prepared. I don’t run but certainly admire her tenacity!
