Wintering at Lake Bluff

Jessica and I are spending the winter season at Lake Bluff as the most recent tenants of Charles' cottage. There is a good snow base and we're hoping it sticks around through the next few days of warmer weather so that we can look forward to good ski conditions!

We have really been enjoying the wood stove over the past few months, burning a combination of Lake Bluff hardwood from the Labor Day Storm of 1998 (stored in the Burgess metal garage, split this season using Simonet's maul) and local Apple wood purchased at Mac Stringer located on Rt. 104 in Ontario (near the Tops Plaza) for $50 / face cord.
