We remain iced and snowed in up here in beautiful Lake Almanor. It all started in late November when the winter turned unseasonably cold. That led to a beautiful White Christmas followed by a cold month of January. February did not disappoint with heavy snowfall. Now, here we are in March. It's definitely come in like a lion. The days are generally hovering in the neighborhood of freezing. The snow is stacking up. What days we do have some sunshine peeking through, it's warm on the flesh. Spring is shining up there. It's just a matter of time. For now, cold wintery weather is still the prevailing weather pattern. The neighborhood is busy with young people clearing roofs of snow. There is a fear that the heavy wet slushy snow and rain that is forecast in the coming week will be too much for the homes to hold.
Our fishing boat, the Olivia Lynn, is resting comfortably in the garage awaiting service, presuming it doesn't collapse. We hope to begin operations within a couple of weeks. It's all dependent on mother nature giving us the go ahead. The lake still sits partially frozen. The winds are heavy with each storm that seem to continually pass across its surface. For now, we are staying home. Keeping warm by the fire as we hang tight and wait for a break.
