Thunder Bay – WEATHER – There are fog advisories and frost advisories in parts of Western Ontario this morning. There is a blowing snow advisory for Peawanuck in the North.

Fog advisory in effect for:

  • Marathon – Schreiber
  • Wawa – Pukaskwa Park

Areas of dense fog will continue early this morning.

Areas of dense fog will persist along the Lake Superior shoreline before dissipating this morning. Fog may reduce visibility suddenly to near zero.

Blowing snow advisory in effect for:

  • Peawanuck

Poor visibility in snow and blowing snow expected this morning.

This kind of weather coupled with the current provincial stay-at-home order under the COVID-19 restrictions is making it very hard for many people to keep their focus.

Instances of intoxication are up, be that from alcohol, or drugs. Instances of domestic violence are up. People are choosing the bottle, the bong, or the needle and choosing anger as their path.

Honestly that isn’t the path. The path should be taking opportunities to learn, to care for one another. Reports have come into NetNewsLedger about a single mom who has taken upon herself to take food to the people in downtown Fort William here in Thunder Bay.

There is a chance here for all of us to look at where we are, and to decide that now is the time for change. Positive change.

You and your family, you can do this. All it takes is today, making a decision to start.

You can do this. Remember, “You’re beautiful”.
