It looks like the weather is going to be great. We had a bit of a thaw and some rain yesterday, but it got colder, and the rain turned to snow, putting a nice dusting on all the trees. There is a layer of ice under a couple of inches of snow on our road. The woods have close to two feet of crusty snow.
There is a lot of snow on the ground. The banks along Route 26 are getting high. Our road to camp is like a tunnel– very high banks, and pretty narrow. The dogs pretty much stay in the plowed areas. Except for Carson, who broke trail through the woods, taking his normal circuit to visit all the camps on our Point; stopping to get a biscuit from Wendy, our neighbor.
Should be a great weekend to get outside. Skiing, skating, snowshoeing, sledding, ice fishing, snowmobiling, hunting….take your pick. There is lots of activity around the lake. Camps that are usually only used in the Summer are occupied.
The snowmobile trails have been groomed. Roads are a bit rough– icy, sanded and some bare spots. Not much activity the last couple of days; it will pick up over the long weekend.
My daughter’s family is heading to camp. I think I will be cooking at least 6 pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven. Always a fun event, involving the whole family.
