I’m not one for just photographing snow. Check out this cutie near Chalet 2! I love the Redpolls – they look like they have been splashed with red paint. 🙂

March 19 – We took a cold walk on Superior (Sandy Beach)

For people that haven’t followed the Canadian Snow Gauge – This is what the Snow Gauge looked like Dec 19, 2017 – with 1 Case Buried…

I think we were working on burying our 6th Case in 2014, but can’t find the pic. doh!

March 7th – I had to update our Casino Chip Collection! (I will be framing the chips someday)

March 6, 2018 – Still 3 Cases buried! (I took the 5th case off the snow gauge.)


It was always difficult explaining snow depths in March. That is why I made Chica in 2012. Chica is my height, and people could see how deep the snow would be on me.

Today’s walk in the Forest – Peanut was being Camera Shy…


Oh my…. Forget about burying Beer Cases! We almost buried the HOT TUB!! I’ll be shovelling ALL DAY. Oh I miss Mexico! lol!!

OK Snow Watchers – I have returned from my Mexican Adventure! 4 Cases Buried!

February 10 – the snow is piling up! I made sure to take the pic before brushing it off to feed the birds. There are SO many birds waiting for me, on the power lines and in the trees….  It’s like an Alfred Hitchcock movie! lol

Signs Signs Signs – With our location, we were always putting up new signs and printing maps. Then the Loggers would move in and we needed more signs, and new maps… At least we had Nicole to help! lol

February 7 – we received about 6 inches of fresh snow last night. We are working on the 3rd case now!

In 2005, we put the 5th case of beer on the snow gauge. I remember we called it “The Bad Luck Bud” because it never snowed again. (Like 4 cases of snow aren’t enough for riding? lol!)

Only 1 Case buried in 2007. The trails would not have been opened –
