Good Morning from the Buried ‘Creek,
I am just in from another round of snow removal and a good stomp around our forest. I am relieved to share that the storm has finally abated after a relentless 40 hours of non-stop wind, whiteout conditions, and experiencing a weather anomaly known as a Lake Superior Enhancement Band. I attached the numbers from last night’s news, but it was still snowing in BYC at the time, so we might have received an extra inch or two. Of course, what does it matter when measuring in feet.
The good news is that it is COLD! That means light, fluffy stuff and nary a stick on the ground or any damage to report. It is much easier to move, too; however, we are running out of room. The tally in my head has us around our seasonal average of 100 inches, and zero of that has melted. As it turns out, Bayfield has also had the coldest winter since 2014 – the polar vortex year.
We will see what March brings, but it looks like a wonderland today. The conditions are perfect, so grab your ‘shoes and skis, head north, and have fun!
Take good care, and see you at the ‘Creek!
