With the recent warm we lost pretty much all of the snow we received a week ago.  Over Thanksgiving weekend some private owners came up and worked on their houses.  With the weather the way it is right now I would advise the rest of you get up and check your house over and make improvements needed now instead of waiting any longer.

Today marks a milestone so to speak to me.  The guy that started all of this with his wife Phyllis.  Clark Lyback (my Dad) would have been 100 years old today if he was still alive.  He passed away in 1984 unexpectedly at the age of 68, and that is when my life changed forever.  There isn’t a day when I’m out there on the ice that I don’t think of him.  Sometimes the thoughts are happy and other times they bring sadness. You would think that after 32 years the hurt of loss would go away but I guess it doesn’t.   You just learn to live with it.  I’ve attached a picture of him when he got his first V-plow on his Jeep for the ice roads…if he only knew what he started almost 70 years ago…    🙂
