Charlie update

Winter continues to hold on in the Northwoods. We had a few days of temps in the 60’s. It melted a lot of snow, but the lake remains frozen as we still have temps in the 20’s at night. This next week the temps are holding in the 40’s so the ice melt will be slowed down. Spring cleaning began this week. The melting snow makes it easier to access the vacation homes.

 

Poor Charlie has fallen over and will remain in that position until he takes the plunge.

The warmer temps opened up the entrance to the creek.

Spring Snow Storm

Mother nature was at her finest in the Northwoods. 16 inches of snow came down yesterday and today. A lovely wet heavy snow has blanketed the resort. The entire area has broken many records this year; many of the records were set in either the 1920’s or 30’s. We are easily pushing 130 inches of snow this winter in our immediate area. For those of you who are already enjoying spring, think warm thoughts as you look at the pictures.

Even the shovels got buried.

Area around the resort ranged from 12" to 19" where drifts were.

We always get great drifts between the lodge and Red Oaks from the wind off the lake.

All of the snow piles John worked so diligently to remove with the bobcat last week have returned.

The snow from the driveway in front of Loon and Mallard created this 10 foot + mound of snow.

Charlie says….enough snow already!

As the snow is falling in the Northwoods, I thought I would share how Charlie looked at the end of the day on Sunday.  He was sitting in a pool of water with hopes of the ice going out. Then the weather turned cold again with lows around zero. He is now buried again in snow.

Haulin’ Snow

With the high amount of snow we had this year, John had to bite the bullet and rent a bobcat for the day. He’s been hauling snow since 7:30 this morning to allow the water lines to thaw quicker.

The bank went out to where you see blacktop. The parking lot was getting smaller and smaller.

Charlie’s tilt begins

The warmer temps are working their magic. Charlie is beginning to tilt and the ice is leaving the shoreline, even if just  a little.  We’ll keep you posted.
