Hi Quimby,

It's been 3 winters ago since I stayed the whole season. This year I had numerous interior and outside projects that had been on the 'to do' list for far too long. Of course I didn't get everything done but I cleared about 100 yards of lake shore trees and that was a big ticket item. The trees block the breeze and the breeze keeps the mesquites down significantly. There will be much to do when the snow melts off because I could only get at the easy stumps. The giant 'man killer trees' had numerous buttress roots which made cutting to ground level nearly impossible. We are looking forward to a better summer season with the improved view (fantastic) and the hopes of fewer flying pests.

Here's a shot of Boss blowing out the carbon on the field out back. We did a lot of walks on the hard pack trails I put in with the snowmachine back in December & January.

It seemed that every time I stopped to look there were photos that needed to be taken. On this past Monday there was a significant wind and snow event. On Tuesday I noticed all the cool designs on the lake.
