After waiting most of the winter, we finally got some snow about a week ago!
The snow warning initially called for 24 inches of snow, cold temperatures, and hurricane force winds in some areas. While we did get lots of wind and it was cold enough to freeze our waterlines, we ended up with a mere 13 inches of snow in 5 days.
The snow was so dry and light (unusual for our area), we didn't use the snow blowers; we cleared the snow from all surfaces with shovels.
The cold temperatures took the flow in Sadie Creek way down--most of the creek here is dry and covered with snow. If you look at the upper left rock below the branches, this rock was barely showing during the heavy rains.
Sometimes Feral needs a little encouragement to get out into the snow.
She's pretty good in the snow once she gets going!
Thanks to JJ and Amy who brought us some beautiful flowers when they visited the townsite recently.
Reflections on snow.
The river otters also enjoy the snow--we see them sliding along the snow on the dock and sometimes up by the lodge.

Early morning down on the dock. Shoveling the skiff is part of the routine snow removal.
Below are some random shots around the lodge.
