Feeling blue

Every shade of blue was visible from the north pier Monday morning. The thermometer has been all over the place recently, with heavy rains on Sunday evening taking care of a lot of accumulated snow. (Josh Howald photo)

Family shoes

Penetangear hosted a community snowshoe event at the Stoney Island Conservation Area Sunday. Here, Bryan and Lija Bradley of Kincardine brought along daughters Claire, 2, and Maeve, six months, for a fun day on the trails. (Barb McKay photo)

Capital save

Keaton Bowman of the Walkerton novice LL#1 Capitals makes a big save with his glove during the Arran-Elderslie Ice Dogs novice tournament Sunday morning in Paisley. Bowman had a shutout in this game, which his team won in a shootout. The Caps won three games, two of them in a shootout, before losing to Saugeen Shores in the tournament final. (Josh Howald photo)

Blowing snow

Blowing snow, falling heavily at times, made it tough to navigate roads even in the downtown core of Kincardine. The weather shut down highways all around the Municipality late Sunday and into Monday. (Barb McKay photo)

Haggis here!

David Wilson, left, and Jennifer Farrell of the Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band didn't miss the chance to get into some haggis Saturday at the Kincardine Branch #183 of the Royal Canadian Legion. There was a sold out crowd on hand for the annual Robbie Burns Dinner, which featured live entertainment and plenty of great food - including the haggis, which Wilson is pointing out.

Bud Pretty walks over the north Penetangore bridge on a stroll of Kincardine's trails with his dogs Maggie and Bailey Sunday. The mild temperature and light snow made for ideal conditions for a walk - not like the start of this week, when heavy snow and cold winds closed highways and kept students away from school on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Good Knights!
