The lake level is finally starting to fall again. It is down about 4 1/2 inches from its peak last week. That was quite the run up it did for a few weeks reaching a level higher that it had been at ice out.
The Shell station at the south-west corner of 62 and the 401 in Belleville is re-open as of June 30. Contractors did not waste any time on tank replacement there.
Good council meeting on the 20th. The revised sign by-law passed this month. It will make it easier for the by-law enforcement officer to keep our roadways from being so cluttered with ugly, nailed up signs. The new Short Term Accommodation licensing by-law was read a first time. Great job on putting it together. It will go through some revisions and come back to council next month. The Municipal fines by-law is still going through revisions. Good chance it will not reach final approval until after election. Just an FYI, the storm has cost the municipality about $135,000 in clean up costs so far. Staff is working on provincial reimbursement.
Two webcams are back on the limericklake.com website. They are not live, but update a new frame every 180 seconds. Hope many of those who were disappointed when the webcams wet off line in February like having those views of the lake again.
For those driving between the US and Canada, the restrictions and questions seem to change at random. Several recent trips to NY State went smoothly in both directions. Always be prepared with all documentation on printed paper to avoid delays. Travelers must use ArriveCAN northbound, but that is fairly easy to comply with. Asks a lot of questions the first time, but remembers the data and subsequent uses are much quicker. Since the implementation of ArriveCAN I typically spend less than 30 seconds at Canada customs.
There is an update to ArriveCAN dated March 18, 2022. If you installed it prior to that date it will need to be updated. Suggest you do that in advance of actually needing it in case of glitches.
Internet service on the lake has been handed off to Northern Rural Net. There are a few alternatives. There is a company called MapleWiFi that is offering unlimited cellular data packages that can be turned on and off on a monthly basis. Nice for seasonal use. After a lot of "site searching" had success in installing a Starlink dish. Got it to have 98% up time. Gives around 250Mbps down and 10Mbps up. It does need a tree free view to the north. Good-bye stupidly expensive Bell cellular router.
