We had some unexpected guests on Saturday..... A group of 6 from another outfitter was trying to reach their outpost but the weather was uncooperative. Fortunately the pilot had heard about our new docks and decided to land on Douglas for a safe haven. Cynthia made them fresh coffee, muffins and breakfast to wait out the storm. It was touch and go for a while but they eventually flew out around 5 PM that evening.
Northwestern Ontario has had severe weather warnings since Saturday morning with planes still unable to fly as of this morning, this is leaving quite a few fishermen stranded in the bush unable to travel home. There are also quite a few fishermen stranded in town unable to make it to the bush!
