The Canada men's hockey players won against the USA so they will be in the Gold / Silver metal game on Sunday! Yeah. We're number one (or two)... we're number one (or two) ... we're NUMBER ONE OR TWO. As Eric C. would say... sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
Anyways... on with Park stuff.
It rained Thursday night and a bit yesterday with thunderstorms.
The creek is still down (as in, it is not flooding the road yet). It was warm yesterday 45F or 7C.
That is HOT for this time of year.
Today it is 37F or maybe 5C?
The roads were very VERY icy yesterday. There is a lot of slush on the roads too. The plow is not going to remove the slush as it would turn into a big skating rink when it freezes.
Last night it froze... now the Park is a skating rink ha ha ha.
Someone is driving around the seasonal area and creating a real mess. The Yurt peeps are parking at the front. You might want to check with the office before you drive up here.
The creek is still low so there is no danger of the road flooding ... at least today.
Here are a few photos of Missy plowing. Before this she was stuck in the snowbank... heh heh. A bunch of us tried to dig and push her out but someone with a big truck came along and pulled her out. The snow is very high... Thanks Judy for the photos!
Here are some more photos showing how much snow we've gotten... thanks Judy for the photos!
Here is JL standing beside it...
The following photos are from Wendy and Kim... thanks!! This is Bruce's deck at the Outback, all cleaned off. Haven't seen Bruce in months... is it too cold for you? (grin)
Here is the road to the seasonal area... notice how low the water is in the creek.
Two of the staff have thrown some sand on the ground around the in and out gates. Good thing as it is starting to get very slippery at the gates.
View across the lake.
The bridge near the Outback.
People have been snowshoeing in the Park... there are a lot of tracks. Plus on the back trails.
Not many skiers though... after the rain, it may be a bit difficult to ski.
One casualty of the wet snow and rain... the Christmas float that was parked in the overflow parking in the seasonal area is now as flat as a pancake. The roof caved in. The owner has been notified.
I didn't see any problems with any sheds or trailers while walking around yesterday. You can't walk today as there is wayyyyyyyy too much ice on the roads.
The top layer of the rink on the lake was water yesterday but it looks like it is frozen now.
Another propane delivery yesterday... at least it is getting warmer :-)
Make sure you get your sleep tonight so you can get up at SIX AM to watch the Olympic Gold Men's Hockey Game.
GO TEAM GO!!!
