The temperature has warmed up a little bit and it is actually in the teens today. That’s a nice change from having it hover in the single digits, now maybe we can get some snow! It sounds like people all over the country are being blessed with dumpings of the white stuff, so let’s not forget the Gunflint Trail. The river has finally frozen over and the big lakes are full of fog in their preparation to freeze, it shouldn’t be long now. Some of the smaller lakes have a good 8" of ice thanks to the many days of cold temperatures. All we need is some good snow and we’ll be out skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing before you can say, "Someone needs to shovel."
