Wow! We got spring this week...and fast. With several days in the 50s and 60s, the ice got the message and started melting. Yesterday, with warm winds gusting all day long, we could tell the lake would open up by days end. We've recorded the ice out dates for all of the 23 years that we have been here, and this year is the earliest ever.
Does that mean that the lake will warm up faster? Well, we woke up to snow flurries this morning, so winter isn't quite over. The grass is getting green and we're certainly getting the itch to get our projects done.
The lodge is almost ready...still waiting for a few clothing orders to be delivered. We need to go to a couple of food shows and see the new ideas they have for us. The candy counter is filled and ready for the kiddos to cash in their KIDKARDS...and we're inventing new ice cream sundaes for everyone to enjoy!
Here's a few pictures of the ice out excitement. The ice sounded like wind chimes as it bounced up on the shoreline...the dog kept barking at the noises...crazy Wrigley!
