First Snow on Lake Herman!

Cross-posted at RealMadison.org!

View from the porch, Sunday, October 19, 2008. Gorgeous.

View from the porch, today, Wednesday, October 22, 2008. Snow! First snow! And not some wimpy, "Hey, did you see those four flakes that fell during lunch?" snow. Wet, sloppy, hate-to-be-out-biking-in-it snow!

I'm thinkin' one thing, Dad: snow tunnels.

Soon enough, sweetie. Soon enough.

  1. When I was a kid, we used to go up to our cabin in northern Wisconsin in the middle of the winter. We'd shovel snow paths on the lake and skate around the imaginary streets and avenues of cities in our minds. One year a neighbor came down with a bulldozer and cleared off a football-field-sized skating rink for us.

    Don't know if that would work now. Winters are no longer as cold. The ice on the lake would likely give way underneath a full-sized Cat. Oh, the wonders of Global Warming.

    Here in the Hills, we've had our first standard-issue (1 ft, approx 30 cm) snowfall. Most years, snow tunnels are easy to build here. Some years, they are a necessity. Winter is also a good time for reading and writing.

    The advent of our six-month winter will soon become all the more apparent when we lose an hour of daylight in the evenings. Time to check out those new light-emitting-diode (LED) light bulbs that consume less than 1/10 as much energy as conventional lamps and emit a daylight-like spectrum.
