Winter began early this year and it ended late. What a super winter we had! Mud season lasted way too long and now we're on to spring!
On Saturday there was the appearance of a puzzle on the lake, with various sheets of thin ice floating further and further apart. It still seemed as though winter had a small hold on us. After a night of thunderstorms and winds, we awoke the next morning to a pool of beautiful blue water! All the ice had disappeared with the storms over night.
Now that the ice is gone, we can safely close the property gate and let the sled dogs out to free run on the entire property without fear of someone trying to head out on our lake trail, which consisted of until recently, dangerous ice.
The ice went out on Oake Lake almost two weeks later than it did last year! Onward to spring!
