February Update

Snowing softly this AM...it drifts down and covers the pine trees around our log home. Ted has been out to feed the muskrats at the lake...he must chop a hole in the ice for the corn. We took a "short cut" coming home from getting the mail yesterday...got on the ice at the pier and walked over to the house.....there is about 10" of ice, not really enough for me...Ha. It's a funny feeling when you get out in the middle of the lake.
15 turkeys are coming each day, and we just had 3 pileated woodpeckers flying about. One big one landed on a birch tree outside the garage. We are hearing more birds.....wonder if Spring will be early?????
Hope all of you had a sweet Valentine's Day.
Ted is excited about getting a '28 Model A sedan, all restored...it is in the heated garage here and he's out there most of the day.....sighing or ? whatever you do. It is a beauty. I will TRY to get some pictures on the site.
Have a good day.

February 2012

Here we are with not much snow and temps some days in the 40's.....really a strange winter. We are not open but I feel for those who depend on the snow and cold for their business. Of course, we know that winter in not over. We can get 10-12" at t time. Ted has only blown our road and over at the Resort 2x this winter SO FAR.
He is recaulking windows from the cabins, then painting or varnishing them. To save some steps, last week he went across the ice to Cabin 6....said there was at least 10" of ice, so I shouldn't worry. He continues to feed the 14 turkeys that come each day, and lo and behold, one of the warm days of last week, 4 trumpter swans flew in, skidded on the ice to the "water/feed hole", but I think they have gone to warmer waters for awhile.
We hope you are warm and cozy where ever you are.....until next time......
