Winter is here early…a whole six weeks early. I wonder if we get extra credit for that come spring?
The snow stick remains at 1 1/2 inches…maybe some blew away. The wind has been wicked. Not much compared to the lake effect snow in New York State recently.
The Mill Pond on Straight Lake has 6 to 8 inches of ice.
The ice is clear and you can see the bottom of the lake. Yes, that is a crack the ice cracks as it freezes.
There are a few fishermen out there.
That is ice…the snow just blew off of that portion of ice. Yes someone lost their bobber in the tree!
We went for a ride since the sun was out. We didn’t see much…a Crow…or maybe a Raven and possibly a Magpie. No turkeys…no deer.
I sorted beads…it drove my husband and other baby brother nuts watching me whilst they had coffee…they had all kinds of suggestions for me. ( A straw, then a straw with a bit of nylon stretched over it so I wouldn’t choke to death on the beads.) I ordered a mixed bag of 11,000 beads and I am sorting them. ( My other baby brother asked me if I was counting them…ha…not this time.) I sort them first to size and then to color. Just the kind of organizational thing I enjoy. I cannot help that it drives the menfolk nuts.
