The weatherman had the Wednesday into Thursday snow storm just about right on. After a warmer, gray day, snow started to fall late Wednesday evening and continued to fall most of the night. Thursday is starting out with about 5 inches of nice, light, fluffy snow on the ground. Now the deep freeze arrives. The temperature is predicted to fall throughout the day and Friday morning is predicted to be downright chilly. Another, bigger snow storm is on the horizon for Saturday that could potentially could have up to a foot of snow. Travel on the lake should be back to reasonably safe. There has been enough cold weather since the rain last weekend to re-freeze things quite well.
The trails status is as muddy as March right now. Several clubs issued a press release saying they were planning to open their trails for this coming weekend. The local, Old Hastings club issued a press release that the trails had been badly damaged by all the rain and they were having to start over on grooming and there was not enough snow. After this latest snow perhaps that will change..
