It's that time of year again ... repairing the sled so you can drive it a while to repair it again, repeat.

It's definitely winter here at the lake.  More snow is expected overnight, and then we will go into a deep freeze for quite a few days with temperatures dipping to -36C at night.

Ice On

This is just a quick snap with my iPhone of the newly formed ice on Trout Lake.  I'm not too impressed as it's at least 8-10 days earlier than normal, and it's -20C outside and going to get colder.  I know global climate change is a reality, I just thought it meant we would be getting warmer, not colder.
