until we got to the middle where it was smooth, and the conditions were perfect for skating.
Then on Saturday, it got warmer and snowed just a tad. Ice skating season was over,
but Shelby could just fly around the lake on her skis.
Last night, the conditions were perfect for a snowstorm, and we got several inches of snow. It was not a perfect drive into town for tennis practice,
but conditions started melting it immediately, and....it was a perfectly lovely ride back up the Gunflint Trail.
Last year on this date., conditions were perfect for........paddling..............sigh.
