Holy crap.  It's December already. 

Winter may not have officially arrived on the calendar but it has officially arrived at the diner.  The cook Stu has finally changed from shorts to long pants and I had to give up my sandals and put on shoes.  It was either that or try to find little snow plows for them and I didn't have any luck with the plows. 

But even more exciting is that we even got out first call about snow conditions today. 

The snow that came last week is still here the trails are well covered but not enough to do any riding.  If you had some acreage and  wanted to ride around a little that would be okay but there isn't enough to venture out. Things have been pretty quiet around the old diner these days.  With the cottagers gone and the locals all out of town shopping and stuff there isn't much action.

Trail permits are available at the diner and the general store. 

The general store has new owners now.  Really nice people with great ideas.  There will be lots of changes including longer hours and GAS all the time. Just imagine. They may even be putting in pumps that you can access 24 hours a day if need be.

The annual Santa Claus parade takes place on December 14 at 5:00 pm  preceded by a farmers market in the gym and other events at the old community centre.  If you are planning a weekend up north before Christmas you might consider that one.  It is always a great time.

I'm not sure what the weather is going to be like for the rest of the week.  I am getting conflicting reports from the old boys coffee club so we will just have to wait and see what mother nature brings for the rest of the week.

I will be back more often now as the winter gets closer.  The big guy just got a plow for his ATV so now he has something to play with all winter.  That should keep him happy and a better path for the staff to get around.

Get those Christmas chores  done so that you can head up north for a rest.

Back soon.
