It certainly was encouraging to see sledders in this weekend. The most common comment is we need more snow.

Well there is more coming Tuesday, Wednesday and then Friday so things should be looking much better this week.

It was a great weekend weather wise not too cold and lots of sun on Sunday. However this morning was YIKES minus 33. It zoomed up to a balmy minus 27 by 9:00. Hardly worth putting a coat on to come to work! There was already lots of ice on the lakes but this will really freeze stuff up. Even some things we don't want frozen.

Rhonda and the gang from across the road had a very inventive way of spending the day when sledding conditions were not the best. They shoveled off a section of the lake, built a fire on the shore, moved the bar down to a snowbank and played a afternoon of boccie ball. I'm not sure but they may be representing Canada in the next winter Olympics, they are that good!!!

The groomer went out last night and did up to Whitney and down to Bancroft. Unfortunately on the return trip from Whitney the groomer blew a tire so some work will be done on it this week.

On an even sadder note Jim M's new sled went home on a trailer this weekend :-( Poor Jim after the last few years of reeeeeeeeelllllly bad luck with his Skidoo he was hoping for better luck with an Arctic Cat, but alas it was not to be. Look on the bright side Jim at least you keep us in touching stories. I hope it's feeling better by next weekend and is able to come out to play again.

That's all the news that fit to print for now. I'll be back later in the week.
