If your given Lemons make Lemonaide
Yesterday we woke to 5 inches of snow and it the snow kept coming through out the day. My first thought when I saw it
was UHGG! Then I saw that the only ice left on our bay of Dixon lake is out in front of our place. It's just
torturing us, sitting there and now all full of snow to "boot" A short time after breakfast I said what the
heck and went out to retrieve my ski equipment which had been stored nietly away for the summer season in our shed.
So I strapped my skis on and away I went, just a short sticky ski across the nieghbors and down a big hill was really
nice, once I got out to the road the snow was a little to sticky so I turned back, but got a mile & 1/2 in none the
Watching the ice go out
Half of the north end of the lake is open now and I'll be watching closely all day to see the rest of the ice go out.
Ahhh waht a great feeling, spring IS REALLY here.
The end of the ski season
This is always a sad time of year for me, the end of XC skiing. The thing I really don't like is the wait to be
able to bike or swim. It will be about 2 months or more until the water warms enough to swim. Biking is impossible
during April & May cause the roads are pretty sloppy. I like to be outside for my exercise and thats just not possible.
Yesterday I bought an Elliptical trainer to get me through the next 2 months. Spring is torture for me, why
can't we just go from winter to summer over night*~*
