Snow, and the beginnings of ice on the lake, have made themselves known. It looks like the thin snow cover is going to last the season. Chances of a melt off are slim. Ice has been seen around the short of Mud Lake. It is thin, and it changes by the day, but it is likely to stay.
The geese and two swans have been hanging out on the lake. No big fly off yet by the geese. The swans are only current visitors here as they must be on the river over winter to be in open water.
There are no signs of the beaver. Beave cut a tree down or two, but action in harvesting the load has been nil.The smelly stuff obtained to deter him from the trees close to the dock zone has remained unused.
