    PURE PAIN. I refuse....REFUSE...to use my snow blower in the middle of April. I was semi-comfortable with this decision until 9PM last night when the plow finally came around our street. Now I have a 12" wall of ice at the end of my driveway. And based on the weather forecast it likely won't melt until this weekend. So sad.

    Absolutely miserable weather. May is just two weeks away and we are still dealing with accumulating snow/sleet/whatever that was all weekend long. I had spent a weekend or two on the boat by now just a few years ago. Ugh...

    We got over 12” snow over the weekend. We’re planning a June 9th boat trip. Don’t know if it’s going to happen.

    Took these pics on the weekend. This channel was frozen over 3 weeks ago. Summer is coming to all us northerners. Actually, according to the SRC member map, I am the farthest north by a fair bit. IMG_0087.JPG IMG_0088.JPG

    Well it was 80* here Saturday so got excited and got a little work done on the boat. And today it's 30* and snowing. Neighbor's are getting a new roof. Poor guys were up there today in the snow ripping the old shingles off...lol
