Waking up from winter!

Sun, 02/16/2014 - 9:49pm

The bitter temps and short days of January left me feeling a little more closed in this year than in the past.

Today was a sunny beautiful day. Children were sledding, guests were skiing snowmobiling, and fishing and the phone has been ringing off the hook. Perhaps I’m not alone in my feeling of cabin fever! – I had a mind to hang a note on the door and head out for a snowshoe workout

We’ve had such great snowfall recently, nearly 10 inches since Friday. Today was a nice break, but tomorrow’s promise is for 4-8 more inches. The snowbanks are higher than I’ve seen in a long time.

The 2013 Mush for a Cure “fun”d-raiser is just around the corner. The event has changed a bit this year – with the start and end all happening out front on the lake! Starting with a pancake breakfast fundraiser sponsored by Upper Lakes Foods, you can watch the Mushers set up on the lake, start the race and wait for the results.

If you’re in the area or just want to drive up to watch the fun it’s a crazy pink day!!
