Couple friends of mine went to Bessemer, Mich. last weekend and said riding was just OK. One hit a huge rock in the trail that caused some minor damage.

There could be enough snow by Sunday. There's a big snow storm forecasted this weekend for MN. Wait and see what happens...

It seems when they talk about snow a for a week we usually get some. Last read from the national weather service is calling for up to 12" in areas this weekend. That will give us a good base...

About a foot around Kabetogama & Ash River. Lakes are freezing, trails have been cleared but not groomed as of yet.

Please check ice conditions before traveling on area lakes and rivers. The park will begin staking the ice near the end of December, if all goes well.

LET IT SNOW

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.
