Is it Thursday already?

Another week is almost over. Not too many around this week but everyone in said that all the trails are in great shape. The groomers have been out regularly and the old boys club that is brushing the trails have been out every other day trying to clean up.

The 177 is still impassable and will be for a long time. There are two groups working on it one from each end. They haven't met in the middle yet.

Yesterday the groomer was on it's way to Whitney when it blew a tire. They made it to Hay Lake Road where the service guy could meet them and they were able to get it fixed. But it took quite a long time. Our cook Pat and Bill stopped and helped fix it. You can imagine how much help Bill was. I'll bet he gave directions better than any one else there.

We haven't had any new snow for a few days. A smidgen of freezing rain yesterday but it is cold and damp. My sinuses are starting to act up so it is either going to snow or I have had too much white wine this week. I think it's going to snow!!!

We have gas at the gas station today after six days without. I am still keeping premium fuel on hand for emergencies.

There is a winter festival happening on the family day weekend with lots of activities all weekend in Bancroft, L 'Amable and Maynooth. As part of the festival I am organizing a Snow Shoe Baseball Tournament. If you have a group that would like to put a team in we would love it. Just call the diner at 613-338-3043 to register your team. You must supply your own snowshoes. It's a lot of fun.

The MLSS Snowskimmers Poker Run is the next weekend.

Well no disasters here this week and no touching stories, at least none that I can share so I will end so that I can go outside and do the snow dance.

See you on the weekend
