The Weather Is The Story

I really do tire of talking about the weather day in and day out but as long as things remain as they are the weather will be the story and that means I'll be talking about it. Opening fishing weekend is May 9th - May 12th here and the lake they have the Governors Fishing opener on this year has 32 inches of ice. Last night we got another 10 inches of snow while up north near Duluth they got another 18 plus inches. I will be driving thru there and camping a bit further north in about four weeks. This is all new territory in terms of winter lasting so long so I am really not sure what to expect then. Its truly historic. I probably wont see another winter like this one in my lifetime. I will keep on posting here as long as the weather remains the story!

Here is a picture of the snow removal company moving snow around where I work today. I would love to hear weather related news from others. The type that affects what I'd really rather be doing..camping!

Oh goodness.

We'll be on our third trip this weekend. Biggest worry for us is how the thunderstorms might affect us, if/when they hit. It was 90 degrees this week, which is warm for us.

I've been disappointed with our weather (mostly mid 50s/rainy) but I would cry if we had anything like those piles of snow!! I guess I should be happy with what we got!
