Not much happening around here this week - except trying to keep the driveway and paths open. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were warm, with light rain and sleet on and off, never enough to matter but enough to soften the snowpack and create huge nasty ruts when we drove in and out. Wednesday it cooled down enough so that Mike used the snowblower to even out the ruts - it was nasty snowblowing that wet, heavy snow but better than trying to blow ice ridges when the ruts have refrozen!
So it's been indoor work for us, I've got the outfitting food for 2009 ordered and have been interviewing prospective employees. We've offered jobs to a great young couple from Iowa to help us this summer. Mike's been organizing and starting work on taxes and this afternoon he started installing the new sauna stove (see 1-4-09 post).
The sun can start shining any time - after a week of our beautiful black and white world we're ready for black, white, and blue! If the sun comes out next week Mike plans to start fishing Birch Lake for splake - pictures to follow?
