After what looked like it would be a quick start to winter, we have settled into a pattern that is a little warmer than normal, making ice and snow hard to come by. The snow pack is down to only 6 inches or so deep with lots of bare spots. Dark areas keep appearing out on the ice, meaning that water gets on top of it and it is not freezing over again. The bit of precipitation Sunday night fell mostly as rain. It is supposed to get colder as the day goes by today. The coming week has no really cold days or big snow storms to help get the trails open. It is a wait and see game.
Congrats go out to the 50 winners splitting a $1M lottery win in Belleville. They are a group of "Operation Red Nose" volunteers that Marilyn and I know several of. Great karma that such a group should win.
The snowmobile trails condition map on the TRAILS page of this website is now being updated as warranted. Please do not ride on the trails with ATVs any longer this fall. Trails are closed to all riding until they are opened for snowmobiling by the OFSC.
The snow depth pole in the store webcam has been installed for the winter. Each red and white band represents 6 inches of depth. It is showing about 6 inches of snow at this time.

Very little to talk about on the real estate front. Everything except #310, water access in Greens Bay has sold.
