Well, the roof and drive seem to easily clear of the white stuff, but the lawn is stuck in white cover mode. The sun has been bright over several days and some thinning of the snow can be found, but some areas look unfazed by the light. We think winter is here. The lake iced over some time after the 16th. No telling if the geese took off but they are not heard honking any more.
Now next door Fish Hook Lake still has water and geese. I see on the web that Big Sand and Long have open water. But, Mud Lake is in winter look. Only a tiny area where the snow has melted leaving clear ice marks the remains of the sun.
