With strong winds gusting through our pine trees driving the 23F down to 7F it was not a good morning to even set foot out of the house. But, out of the house, the foots and paws went. With the Jeep in four-wheel drive due to icy roads under a skiff of snow we cranked up the heater and headed into Bayfield for a drive-around. Along Bayfield's beach, the winds were driving the snow sideways while along the roadways it was picking it up and whipping it into swirling snow devils. Sunday will be another bad weather day and then for the next 14-days straight all daytime temps will be above freezing anywhere from 34F to 43F+. It's that time of year when we Northerners expectantly hang onto our long-range 14-day weather forecast. (Amazingly enough, we ended today under partially sunny skies)
