Lousy Lake Bluff Winter

The weather report for tonight consists of freezing rain transitioning into sleet. It has been a meager Winter here at Lake Bluff, never accumulating more than 4-5 inches of snow depth before the air warms up to melt it all away.

There is slightly more build up of the icy, granular, sleety stuff off the Bluff and away from the wind--Tanner and I noticed this in our nightly walk down the Back Beach Road, to the Logging Trail, briefly south through Teeple's Orchard, down Oak Lane, and back up toward the Bluff.

There is ice frozen on branches and brambles on the State land, the ground layer thin but such a consistency that I actually could have skied on it had I started out with that in mind. Perhaps tomorrow night.
