Time to put the umbrellas away! It has been an interesting week weather wise but now that the snow banks are lower and the lake is done pretending to be liquid again it is time for us to get back to winter. A touch of snow this evening is helping the appearance of winter to return. The forecast for the weekend is looking quite good. Unfortunately, the sledders might not like the conditions until next week’s snow that is forecast. Looking at the lake it might be a good weekend to go skating or get a game of hockey going. Just don’t hit the puck too hard or it might end up at the other end of the lake. We have lost a fair bit of snow but it is still early in the game and there is lots more to come. Saturday the 14th of Feb. (nudge,nudge) for those that might have forgotten looks like it is going to be a great day weather wise. It might be a great day to get your significant other out for a walk, snowshoe, trek across the lake to the cottage, etc. We are still keeping quite busy around here with an amazing amount of people stopping in while out exploring the area. I think it is the Kawartha Dairy ice cream craving that is driving the masses!! The holiday weekend might have something to do with it as well. We are closed for Family Day on Monday and re-opening on Tuesday the 17th. We wish everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day and a great winter long weekend.
