Is it Spring yet?


It's springtime in the New Hampshire Lake Winnipesaukee area.  Everyone is getting ready for warm weather.  But, where is it?  It's coming and before you know it, the temperatures will be warm again.  Over the last few years, we seem to go from cold right into very warm.  Maybe that will happen again.  I think everyone can't wait for those warm temperatures.


We're still waiting for ice out on Lake Winnipesaukee.  Last year, we had a very warm spring and the earliest ice out on record.  This year the lake is still covered in a thick layer of snow and ice.  In fact, some people were still snowmobiling on the lake last weekend.  The ice at the shoreline is pretty thin, but they're making it out there to ride.  I'm wondering if we'll have a record this year for the latest ice out.  We'll see.


Skiing at Gunstock ended this weekend.  We took advantage of the beautiful snow cover and skied both days as well as during the week.  It was the best conditions all year.  Of course, we still had to be dressed for the winter.  It's time for mother nature to warm us up.


Every April, we take our boat out for a shake down cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee.  My guess is, we're not doing that this April.  We still  have a foot of snow in our yard (that's where the boat is stored for the winter.)  But, we can keep our fingers crossed and hope mother nature brings us some warmth.
