Oh my goodness, where did the summer go! It would appear that the summer storms are telling us something!
For those flooded in Pointe au Baril Station yesterday during the heavy downpour, we do hope that the waters have already receded! We have been told that some parts of the North and South Roads were washed out, the Shell station closed and that the highway had a foot of water on it as did the marinas. Both Parry Sound as well as Pointe au Baril were without hydro.
We sincerely hope that everyone is safe! We also suggest that all cottagers still at their cottages remain vigilant for any smoke that might of come as a result of any lightening strikes that may have accompanied the storms.

This is, for all intent and purpose, the last regular PaBIA eBlast for this 2016 summer season! What a glorious summer it has been – hot temps, lots of sun (finally enough rain to no longer be under a FIRE BAN), and warm waters in which to swim. We hope you have a very safe and joyous Labour Day weekend…and be safe in your travels, wherever they take you and whenever that may be!
