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.
The snow keeps falling in the Northwoods. John is guessing we have had around 120 inches of snow this year and 6 more fell last night. All you can say is it’s beautiful outside. With the high amounts of snow the water tables should be looking good this year. But it also brings it’s challenges. John has been busy digging pathways so we can get into the homes to spring clean. He’s even debating renting a bobcat to start hauling snow.
Enjoy the pictures 🙂
Charlie is a little sad. He hasn’t gotten many guesses this year for when he’ll take the plunge. It’s not too late send us an email at [email protected] by March 17th with your date and time.
It’s that time again! Charlie made his trek out onto the ice today.
Make a guess as to when the ice will go out and when Charlie will fall though the ice. Two years ago Charlie fell through on March 19th. Last year Charlie fell through REALLY late, May 6th. The ice can go out as early as late March and as late as the first of May. So choose your date carefully.
When will Charlie fall through this year? It’s anybody’s guess and you could have the winning date and time. If Charlie sinks after dark he will be credited to the next day. John and Sue need some sleep too.
All you need to do is email us at [email protected] with your DATE and TIME of day as to when Charlie will fall through the ice. All entries must be in our email by March 15th. The contest is open to any age and the winner will get their name added to the plaque in the lodge lobby.
Good Luck and we hope you have fun with the fifth annual Charlie the Chipmunk Contest. John and Sue leave town on February 28th and not back home until March 17th. We’re heading off to sport shows. Our carpenter will be keeping an eye on Charlie for us. If there is any change during our absence he’ll get the pictures to me and I’ll update you. Otherwise, come back often after March 17th as we will keep updating photos of Charlie.
As you will see Charlie had fun getting ready for his trek this year!
Another summer season of Charlie hiding around our property has come to an end. He has gone into hibernation until February where he will come out to sit on the ice.
The Swart family who was here this last week had two special Charlie moments.
First: Xander is our youngest Charlie finder in the four years Charlie has been hiding at the resort. Way to go Xander! We have determined he had some help from mom. 🙂
Second: Bodie was our final finder of Charlie for the year.
Here’s Charlies final hiding spot. Can you guess where it is?
