Our Friend Is No More

Local residents are being warned to watch out for their pets and livestock by a Udora resident who had an Alpaca destroyed by a bear or cougar.

Watch Your Pets and Livestock

Living in the country there is always the chance of seeing a wide variety of animals. Some are domesticated like the Llama and Alpaca pictured here or our neighbours horse. We are also blessed with all kinds of wild animals who we occasionally see such as deer, rabbits, raccoons and skunks.

There are also other wild animals that you occasionally hear of someone seeing such as a resident Black Bear that is usually spotted at least once a year cleaning out someones bird feeder or Garbage can. 

Up until now that has been the extent of what we have heard about. This past weekend that all changed as the friendly little brown Alpaca in the picture was attacked and killed by possibly a bear or cougar.

Once a playful critter in our neighbours yard our little friend, who has been a joy for us, our Grandchildren and our visitors, will be sadly missed

BRRRRR!!!

Baby It's Cold Outside

After a couple of weak attempts to snow earlier in the week yesterday it snowed most of the day but with temperatures hovering right around freezing it was still to warm to stick. Over night the temperature dropped enough to allow it to stick, even on the 'warm' ground.

This Morning this is what I woke up to

One rider we spoke to estimated there were in excess of 2,000 bikers on the B.A.D Ride today as it Passed through Uxbridge. He also said we just missed about 30 who had stopped to fill up at the Local Gas Station in Udora.

Kathy Clulow, CNE - ASP - SRES .... Uxbridge Ontario Real Estate (RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc. Brokerage)

Udora's Camp Jõekääru is the place to be on August 23/24 if you are a Jazz fan.

In the early 1950’s the Independent Toronto Estonian Women’s Association purchased land in the north-west side of Udora. The property was then divided into lots for summer cottages for Estonians living in Toronto. The name Jõekääru translated into English is River Bend as the Pefferlaw River runs through the grounds. With the cottages came the Estonian Children's Camp. Last years JK Jazz festival raised funds to replace the windows in the boys and girls camp buildings providing enhanced ventalation for the camp attendees.

Come and enjoy a great summer evening of Jazz with performers coming from Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Brazil, Cuba and Mexico. Also featured this year is an art exibit and sale in the newly completed Timmas Art Studio, with a portion of the proceeds directed to the camps infrastructure fund.

The doors open on Saturday August 23rd at 12 noon. Entertainment starts at 1pm with the headliners hitting the stage at 3pm. Sunday August 24th  the doors open at 10am with entertainment from 11am. Adult admission is $25 during the advance sale campaign ($35 at the gate). Youth tickets (for those aged 5-18) are $15 and will only be sold at the gate

Sponsored by The National Estonian Foundation of Canada! JK JAZZ 2008 is also supported as an official event by the town of Georgina.

Udora River Run
Kathy Clulow, CNE - ASP - SRES .... Uxbridge Ontario Real Estate (RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc. Brokerage)

The starting PointRecently the Udora - Leaskdale Lions held their annual river run from the Zepher side road through the Estonian Camp in Udora and on into Pefferlaw. This years event was a fund raiser for the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital with approximately $1,500 being raised.

If the canoe run had been scheduled for a few weeks ago ... this is what they would have been paddling through ... more like white water rafting.

Dangerous Waters Abound
Kathy Clulow, CNE - ASP - SRES .... Uxbridge Ontario Real Estate (RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc. Brokerage)

Keep Your Children Away From Swollen Streams and Rivers

While the snow may be all but gone around Uxbridge the Streams and rivers are still very dangerous. The water level where these videos were taken rose close to 1 foot overnight last night (Wed April 02nd) and likely would have risen even more if the temperature had not dropped. Anticipated rain and just above freezing temperatures will likely keep the water levels high for the next week

How Much
Force is There?

The 25+ foot tree in the water was washed down river and through the dam. It is lodged on an island in the river that is now under about 1 foot of water

Normal Flow is about 3 to 4 inches in depth over the dam.

One of three Dams used to control the water level for Peers mill

The Flow through the dam is about 3 feet in depth at the time of these videos

Just How
Dangerous
is the flow?

Watch for the chunk of ice about 4 1/4 seconds into this segment.
It takes just over 1 second to travel 25 feet

Udora General Store
Kathy Clulow, CNE - ASP - SRES .... Uxbridge Ontario Real Estate (RE/MAX All-Stars Realty Inc. Brokerage)

Udora . . . One of the last original General Stores in Ontario still in operation and still distributing mail to the local residents is looking for new owners. The 145 plus year old store has had only six family owners in all that time. Even today it is the hub of this small hamlet just north of Uxbridge.
