Weather or Not

November's weather was warm and dry. So dry you could hear deer moving on Garden Island from inside the Lodge. There were flurries in the air upon occasion, but no real accumulation. Until Thanksgiving, when the white stuff finally arrived and decided to stay.

December promises a white Christmas but don't expect to drive your snow machine from party to party. There could actually be a couple of thaws prior to the holiday. Temperatures should remain slightly above average for this time of year, although the wind may at times drive it down. Look forward to one or two strong gales, real tree benders, not so much blizzards but just Old Man Winter flexing his muscles and getting ready for January. So, stack the wood while you can and whatever holidays you're celebrating, make 'em Rock!
