Since the storm, it has been pretty busy around here so I apologize for not adding any updates until now. They say we had about 30 inches from that storm but around Cozy Cove Cabins, we could not tell. Half of the snow from the lake blew onto our property I think 😆 We were able to get the area plowed but we did need an excavator to help move up and over. Plus all the other snow we had to move: roofs, decks, etc.
Trail reports have been great. Our guests have gone into Canada, over to Pittston Farms, and down to Eusits. The beginning of the weekend had some rough spots but now that the snow had a chance to harden up and groomed again and again, they have been great.
Kids this weekend were building forts in the snow mounds and sliding down the other side. What fun!

WHAT A STORM!
The wind picked up sometime last night so when we woke….oh wow, what a sight. It was still snowing but the wind was blowing so hard that we believe half of the snow that fell on the lake was on our property!
Steve wondered if he wasted his time plowing last night or thankful that he moved as much as he did.
One of our guests made the mistake of leaving their sleds out all night. Even though they put one behind their trailer, the sled was buried this morning.
It is unsure how much snow we actually got in the region because of the wind. Perhaps someone in town may have an idea.
So we have been plowing and blowing (which using a snow blower when it is windy does not really work well) and shoveling all morning. Now the sun is out and it sure is pretty.
If you are on your way up to the region today or this weekend, drive careful as the winds are blowing much snow onto the roads. The plow trucks are doing a great job with the roads but their still may be drifts. And no matter where you are staying this weekend, be kind to your hosts as they must of all had a busy day today trying to make room for you and your trailers.
I did get pictures this morning and will try to post them later but for now, back to work!
Well finally, here is one picture we took Thursday Morning before we started to plow. Today, it was even worse so we had an Excavator come in to help move some of the snow!
Wednesday February 14, 2007 HAPPY Valentine-s DAY
The winter storm is on it-s way. This morning we had about 4 inches by 9am. At 6pm, I was shoveling off our deck for the second time today, and it began to snow harder so that by the time I was done, there was another inch down where I had cleaned off first. Now at 8pm, I measured a total of 16 + inches on our deck. The wind has not started yet so who knows what tomorrow will bring. Steve is still outside plowing our drive area…his fourth run at the place. It is cold out but luckily, no wind today.
I guess no valentine dinner for us tonight!

Big Wood Lake was alive today with Ice fisherman riding their sleds, their Quads, and their vehicles to find that perfect fishing spot. And they are all doing great…well most. This is the Fishing Derby weekend too so I wonder who will win the big prize.
Snowmobilers were also all over the lake … riding across the lake to access the Northern trails. Reports from riders are that the trails are good. Some areas are not perfect but they are having a great time this weekend ❗
The temperature is 10 above but still a bite in the air as the wind comes off the Lake. Most say “”oh it-s not bad”” but too cold for me to go out there so sorry, no videos this weekend….maybe later today we will cover up and go out there. The sun is still too high for good photography anyhow :wink:[i][/i]
