The ice went out on Monday and we flew in to the cabin on Thursday. We were ready. The lake looks good with a float plane in the foreground.
Some of the neighbors reported finding collapsed porches, missing docks and broken trailer axles but we were lucky this year. All that heavy snow just melted away and our buildings, docks and boats were undamaged.
We spent two hours the first morning digging snow from the beach and inching our pontoon boat back into the water. It started right up and we got everything else up and running. I moved some firewood which wasn't the first time this particular pile has been moved. We are still burning wood from clearing the building site five years ago. It will last us quite a while.
