Two years ago the lake was still ice-covered on fishing opening weekend. This year the ice was gone, but snow flurries were in the air and the temperatures were in the low 30s. The wind was biting cold – a huge difference from our winter weather in CA, AZ and TX! But we have had a continual improvement in weather every day and the stillness of the morning lake has been very peaceful.
The granddaughters didn’t seem to mind the bad weather last weekend and even decided to clean up their swing. Unfortunately, the swing was too old and broke in half so Brett will replace the wood and they can finish their project next weekend when they come up for Memorial Day. We’ll have a full house then with Dave and his family coming up also. Looking forward to that.
It’s also been good to be back here and reconnect with our Whiteface friends. We saw a lot of them last night at the Friday night happy hour and some had come over during the week to say hi also.
We’ve been able to spend time with Paige’s mom and helped her purchase a new mattress to help alleviate some of her back pain. She is moving about more freely now and is almost back to normal after dealing with the back and shoulder pain issues. She plans on driving to the cabin soon.
