Merry Christmas!

Yesterday we lost most of our snow with a Christmas Eve rainy day…..very Scrooge-like! In the evening though temperatures dropped and we had a nice dusting of the white stuff. Enough to cover the grass and make the ice less of a “hip breaking” experience. The picture was taken today, December 25, 2023.

Here’s a shot a little closer to VBL…..

I know a few people who will be thinking about how much ice there is…..well, from a few holes drilled out by Gull Rock several days ago there was about 12 inches. Many trout lakes in our area are still ice free. It’s an unusual winter indeed!

Anyways, this is just a short blog post to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. The Christmas newsletter (The Beaver) was mailed out over a week ago so should be winding its way to many of you. Hope you enjoy it!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
