temporary fixes…

During my walk yesterday I stopped at one of Lake Nipissing’s public accesses and happened to notice this…

I’m well aware the wind is very strong off the lake so I understand that a fence may require reinforcement over time if the post aren’t cemented in, we had a fence not stand up to the wind close to 35 years ago when we lived in our first home on Lake Nipissing, due to the fact the posts weren’t cemented in the ground, which must be done to give the sections in between each post stability… a fence was built at the last home on the lake 24 years ago and it is still strong.


Not sure what this is…it appears to be connected to a rock break wall on the right???

  1. We get those high winds here too. A lot of people who do not have their fences correctly installed tend to lose portions of it during the high-winds.

  2. I’m actually surprised those two wooden sticks are holding up an entire fence :O

    • lol…they are probably bracing it so it doesn’t lean and eventually fall over…the winds can be fierce off the lake…

  3. It seems doubtful if the thing is worth preserving.. The bottom one looks more like kindling πŸ˜€

    • this property is bordering on public access, so they won’t want the fence coming down until they can replace it…yes, the bottom one I’m not sure about that, not sure why they would leave it like that, but I’m sure they have their reasons???

    I can’t imagine that fence support lasting very long!
