40° RAIN, OVERCAST, 36° RAIN

Pete saw fit to snow blow the couple inches of snow dusting the ground.  Major warming temps on the way will hopefully melt the base layer of ice off the dock.  The roofs in camp have finally begun to shed and Pete and I tackled the enormous piles!  We had just the thing for the job, a plastic Norwegian style shovel with a metal handlebar.  It appears a cross between a shovel and a sled and functions like a plow to move around big loads.  The best part about it is that there’s no lifting involved.  The Norwegian Loader expedited the job and saved our backs.  We tidied up business on the dock and bailed John’s boat that had filled with rain water.  The wind is supposed to pick up this evening and so we outfitted Privateer with extra dock lines.
