With this years spring melt our water levels look great. Let’s hope we get a good rainfall this spring and into the summer to keep the water levels looking this good. On another note…..Charlie is still hanging on.
With the last two days reaching 70 degrees Charlie is really starting to lean! The final three days that have guesses for Charlie’s demise are: April 29, 30 and May 7. Who will be the winner? Stay tuned as it will most likely be this week!
The shore line opened up today. Yesterday there were several people still ice fishing on the lake. John talked with them and they said there was still two feet of ice on the lake. They were fishing on the weed bed between the island and the point. John said he broke through the ice not too far from Charlie.
Yeah! We finally made it to the 50 degree mark on the thermometer. This is the first time since last fall. We broke a record for the latest 50 degree spring temps from the 1930’s! And the date in the 1930’s was early April. It’s a wonderful sound listening to all the melting snow. It will certainly help with spring cleaning which starts on Monday! Hopefully the 60 degree temps this weekend will help melt some of the snowbanks, but I think they are here to stay for a while.
In 1995 Carol and Dick let people plant trees around the newly landscaped Rec Building. you will see how much they have grown. If you planted a tree, do you remember which one is yours?
This past week has been a huge mix of rain, snow and ice, and what a mess it makes. John I took a stroll around the property on Monday to make sure no trees went through a roof. As you will see it is going to be awhile before Charlie falls through the ice. We start spring cleaning in a week…..should be interesting. Here’s what we found………
I’m not exactly sure what year this took place, but I think it was around 1999 or 2000. I tried to figure it out by how old my kids were in the pictures. One of the weeks I was up here vacationing I organized the White Birch Village Olympics. How many of you remember all the fun?
