As if we didn’t have enough snow..we got some more.
You can see the snow stick on the left of the photo..still pretty much covered in snow..about 12 inches I think.
In a month the GFO (Governors Fishing Opener) will happen in Park Rapids..it is a big deal for fishing/tourism for the area. This morning they went out and measured the ice on the lake, there are 32 inches of ice. It must melt at a rate of an inch a day in order for the ice to leave the lake in time for the Governor…he may have to just fish from shore in waders..or float around on an iceberg.
Many of the snowbirds are disgruntled, they came back and couldn’t find anyone to remove an entire winters snow from their driveways. What snow is left is hard as a rock..it is nothing but ice crystals..like a big old ice cube. Septic systems were froze and needed to be unthawed..just one of the perils of leaving Minnesnowda for the winter. Just one of the reasons we stay home all winter and wash a load of laundry everyday.
I have been busy “winter cleaning” the kitchen. I am about half done. I took down the flannel valance and put up a summery cotton one…maybe that is what made it snow.
Welcome to Springter or is it Wintering? A whole new season. More snow is forecast for Sunday..7 to 14 inches of winter wonderland..I can hardly wait:(
