A storm is coming


Mother nature has no idea what she is bringing us day to day. It rained this morning, then the sun came out and now, in the Northwest skies, you can see the dark clouds and hear the thunder.

Hope the kids get that boat in soon.

Weather update for May 2013


We had a hard frost last night but today, the sun is shining but there is still a bit of a breeze. I am hopeful that it will be warming up.

The forecast calls for possibility of showers next couple days but the weekend looks promising.

The good news for you fisherman: the rain and cooler temps has helped to get a bite.

It is cold out there


The webcam shot showing blue skies but don-t let it fool you. The temperature is about a Minus 8 but the chill factor is about a minus 25 in ton. Can-t say what the chill factor is on the lake though. BRRRR 😯 still pretty darn cold out.

Dress warm and have fun!

And the wind blows

The wind has been gusting all night but when I first took a picture of this snowy mountain, it was calm on the ice. Then the wind picked up (#1) and as you can see by #4, the blowing snow made a misty view of my beautiful snowy sun touched mountain. Still beautiful though don-t you agree?


Welcome Mr Snow


A lovely day today of snowy wonder. It looks like maybe an inch or more on the ground and we are hoping that the rest of the storm remains snow and not rain. Let-s start singing for the 2012-2013 winter season….Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow ❗

First Snow for 2013 season


We woke this morning to a lovely little coating of snow on the grass, roofs and cars. Big fluffy flakes at first but it will probably rain later and it will be gone. We still have leaves on some of the trees:!:

None-the-less, first snow on October 14th seems early and may be what is to come for the 2013 winter season. Tune up your sleds, pull out the ice fishing gear and snow suits.
