It's been a long 5 months since we have gone up to the cabin,
so a few days shy of spring we headed up to check things out.
Last year same time it was 62 degrees and the lake had stared to melt near the shore.
This year a little different story.
The warmest we saw was the upper 30's and their was no water yet on the shoreline.
We discovered a few things on arrival,
#1 Lots of big branches had come down in the yard
Not sure if it was from heavy snow or wind?
#2 Our Heat pump (to warm the cabin) was functioning,
but the air it was blowing out never got warm.
We need to get a heating & cooling guy over to checkout out... next time :)
#3 BEST OF ALL.... no evidence of mice (my biggest fear)
We spent a few hours in town, talking with the shop owners, browsing and getting some walking in.
We decided to stay in a hotel rather than a 40 degree cabin. We had dinner at Zorbas.
Then on Sunday we attended church at Eastside.
It was a nice little getaway....short & sweet!
We are looking forward to opening up the cabin late April or early May!
I love the huge Pine trees in our yard at the cabin, they are soooooo big!
