Default Forty eight hours without snow!!!!!

It hasn't snowed a bit since Friday morning. It's spring in the UP!

It got quite warm yesterday and the snow melt is incredible. My little fish pond is nearly snow and ice free, and I may be able to have only water in there by tomorrow.

The lakes are still frozen, though, and there is lots of snow in the woods. But we're opening the cottage today, and going to build a big fire in the fireplace and stay overnight there.

It's always encouraging when spring comes.

Snow down here in the valley is gone now and I have been getting the garden ready to plant. Brought the trailer up from the pasture where I winter it and have been getting it ready for the camping season.

My wife, and I am newly married, who is from New Zealand asked if we could go camping in the next week or so. As much as I would love to go camping up in the hills there is still a ton of snow up there. Going to be 6 weeks or more before I can get up into my favorite campsite

Winter storm warning going into effect this evening for my little corner of the world. NOAA says 6-12 inches between tonight and tomorrow.

It's okay, though. We've been in a bit of a dry spell and could use the moisture. And it will melt fast, so it's all good. Summer's almost here.

Had to hop in the pool because it was 97 on Sunday. Yep, it's spring time in the valley.

It's nice today, but it's supposed to snow on Thursday here.

But my fish pond is ice free, and after the next snow storm I'll put my fish out there I think.

We opened up the cottage, and the snow melted a lot just in two days. The lake is still frozen over, but I bet it'll be open by Monday or so.

My grandson went out to the lake with me, and he told me he wanted to go for a boat ride. He doesn't quite "get" a frozen lake, I guess.

He did get to throw some rocks, so he was happy anyway.

We built a huge fire in the woodstove last night, and had a great evening of music and beer in front of a fire. It was really nice!
