Snow on the Gunflint

I am happy to report we received a good amount of snow overnight!  I sure hope the 3-5 inches that fell will be enough for the cross-country ski groomers to get out and get the trails open.  If not, then we’ll keep our fingers crossed because it is still snowing.  It is the time of the year when Christmas Cards arrive in the mail and I absolutely love to read about what people have been up to over the past year.  I was shocked by one letter I recently read.  It was written by a relative of mine who lives in North Dakota.  Now, I do not want to offend anyone so I will try to say this as nice as I can.  When I think of North Dakota the first thing that pops into my mind isn’t  "blog savvy people."   I love North Dakota, most of my relatives live there and my whole family is from there including my mom, who if she was still alive would be 61.  She was taught by her older sister, my Aunt, in a one room school house because there was such an age difference between the two of them.  Now, I’m not saying there is a particular age at which you become old or that you should ever call anyone old, or even that older age and technology don’t go hand in hand, and I’m not exactly sure how many years my Aunt has been on this earth and maybe all of this jibber jabber doesn’t matter, but the point of this story is,  I was absolutely shocked to read in my Aunt Agnes’ Christmas letter that she reads my Blog!  I can’t tell you how proud that makes me feel to know she enjoys reading my blog and that feeling is one of the best Christmas Gifts I could ever receive.  Thanks to everyone who keeps reading my blog, especially my Aunt Agnes, I love you!
