We have had an extremely open winter. Rain rather than snow. As of early February we have only had two snowfalls requiring our driveway to be plowed. We have shoveled / scraped snow off our deck maybe 6 times in total. The streams and ponds are full and covered with some ice – but not enough that I would walk on them.
It has not stayed cold enough that HP has been able to keep an ice skating rink in the park. Kathryn has gone XC skiing twice with the snow fall being washed away by rain immediately afterwards. Eric’s Wolverine Ski Club has only met once.
