Wayne Sheridan reports: With the snow flying around, winter has arrived in southern Ontario. It is time to get out your snow tires and winterize your car. Donâ€™t forget to place an emergency blanket in your car and some emergency supplies like candles. River bank edges are very slippery, please be cautious. Last weekend Lenny and Dave went fishing in Port Elgin but action was slow due to dirty water levels. They went and joined Andy and Mario in Southampton but they didnâ€™t have any luck but Andy lost 2 nice rainbows just after they left.
