Ice is Nice

     There is blacktop visible and most parts of the Gunflint Trail.  This is big news for February since the roadway usually remains snow covered throughout winter.  Our deck and roof is almost free of snow too thanks to the warm and sunny weekend. 

     The forecasters would like us to believe these surfaces will soon be covered with ice.  So much so that power lines will topple and we’ll be without electrical services for days.  The lack of electricity has happened before and we’ve gotten along just fine.

     It seems like when a forecast such as the one we have today is made three days in advance it just doesn’t seem as likely.  We will see soon enough.
