Our first trip north to the cabin was planned for this last Saturday. The weather was predicted to be cold, but that fit into our plans with cleaning the cabin the only thing on the agenda. Spring comes late in the northwoods, and in April there is not even a hint of green anywhere. Outside activities don't start in earnest until June..Still, before we left home on Saturday afternoon, we phoned our neighbor up north to ask about the weather, and he reported flurries, but the snow was melting away immediately.
Imagine our surprise when arrived at our destination and found 4-5 inches of fresh new snow everywhere! AND it was cold! 24 degrees at 8 pm.And dark, not surprising, but it explains the poor quality of the photo.
In the morning we awoke to a winter wonderland. On April 17th. Ugh.
