It was sunny all day and Tuesday looks the same. Doesn't look like we'll return to winter weather till Sunday. Cross your fingers that we don't have to start building base all over again.
Time will tell,don't look good.

This time in the season, if the base waves goodbye we've pretty much taken a hit below the waterline.
You never know February and March can bring storms. Can’t throw in the towel yet!
Winter will return! Don’t give up! Been coming up here since 1976! Change your reservations accordingly…
I'm coming up with the son, tail end of this week, we'd love to shove some snow under the sleds but that doesn't look too promising. Coming up just the same, fine for some R&R. Moose River and kayak, anyone?
Looks like another weekend down the drain I will keep hoping whatever happened to lake effect snow I know it would be two feet of it to get in shape but I would take a dusting on the fire pit out in front Steve.
That's the problem, we haven't been getting lake effect like we did years ago. All we need is a few inches a day to replenish the snow the sleds ate up.
