Snowflakes Falling on the Sawtooth Mountains

     That’s from a song the kids learned in their music class a few years ago.  Since it’s snowing outside it only seems appropriate to be thinking of that song.  The flakes that are falling are huge and so light you can blow them off of where they land.  They are the kind that are worth catching on your tongue when you have nothing better to do. 

     Most folks will be able to try catching them on their tongue as they shovel the snow that arrived during the night and is still coming down.  We got a couple of inches of new snow on the Gunflint Trail while Grand Marais probably got about 8 inches of the white stuff.  Lucky them.

     The Sawtooth Mountains are getting their fair share and no doubt skiing conditions will be wonderful for the weekend.  Both Lutsen Ski Hill and the cross-country ski trails along the North Shore were already in good shape so this fresh snow will make it even better.

     Get outside and enjoy winter and don’t forget to catch a snowflake on your tongue while you’re at it.
