Finally winter is back, and the sun is shining

Out to the dump today, new rules for the dump only Sundays, and a half day on Wednesday in the AM.  The rest of the time it will be locked up.  There will also be a person at the dump to tell you where to put it.

Dreary weather, damp, no sun, grey skies

The weather is terrible, had to cancel breaking trail on the snowshoes, lake is full of slush and to top it of we haven't seen the sun for ages.  Tempertures have been around 2-5 °C during the day.
  Not using very much wood in the stove either.  This afternoon I washed the car with the hose and used the chamois to dry it off.  Every time I have been to town I was going to wash the car to get the salt and sand of it and say by the time I get home it will be just as bad.  Now it's clean it will get dirty going into town at least I didn't have to pay for it.

Starting to open snowshoe trail

This afternoon I started to break trail on the snowshoe trail.  It's about 5Km. with a walk on the road to get back at truck.  Today I put in about 1.5Km.  This hasn't been used for about 2-3 years.  Last fall I tagged flagging and did quite a bit of cutting, one area hasn't been tagged at all. Hopefully I will keep at it through January if the weather holds. The trail starts at Bouche Rd and ends at Hedlund marsh.
