Still waiting on spring

As I type this, the North Shore is preparing for a late-season ice storm.  Ore boats and other Lakers are stacked sixty deep at the Soo Locks, waiting for the ice to recede on Lake Superior.  It's still eight feet thick in places, requiring ships to caravan across the big lake with an icebreaker leading the way.  We got 8 inches of snow last weekend.  It's still cold.

But, there is good news on the horizon.  It will be May in a few days, and this simply CANNOT continue into the Lusty Month of May.  It's light out well into the evening now, even if it's still cold.  The snow tends to melt within a few days of falling.  It'll get better soon.

Don't worry, folks.  We have plans a plenty...just waiting for Mother Nature to cooperate.
