Happy May ~ the second day already! Dear Hubby and I took a drive up to the Turtle Flambeau Flowage yesterday to visit friends, drop off some bird houses,
This is Sportsman's Landing:
I don't think there'll be many boats floating off this landing in 2 days ... for the opening of open water fishing.
Here's a shot of the bay by Donner's Bay Resort ... solid ice there too. No boats launching there yet either :(
The creeks and rivers though ... that's another story. They are thawing, and high with water and flowing where some people wish they weren't.
Here's a few shots from driving through the town of Butternut:
The water has already gone down by time we drove through here. The day before the pontoon boats were floating around the yard ~ still on their trailers, by my nephew's business... and he had 8 inches of water in his shop.
Don't worry Sara ~ your pontoon boat is sitting in our yard now ... and the rest of the boats up there have all been secured and no damage was done to any of them.
Today ... we are under another Winter Storm Advisory. It's snowing now and we are expecting accumulations of up to a foot of snow. Will we ever have spring? So far ~ we had a few days of nice weather ; but this winter weather is really hanging on. Our grounds are once again all covered in snow. Where we saw green yesterday ~ today is white once more. It's hard to believe we are in the month of May when it looks and feels like January outside.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
