Warmer today but will get colder

Yesterday out on the snowshoes of the Bouche Rd.  It is not plowed out had my new snowshoes they are a lot lighter than the wood ones I have used for years and made them myself.  These are called Tubbs very light and easy to put on.  Will see how they work the snow was up to my knees with the shoes but the snow was very fluffy.  Even the wood ones would do the same, to some pics too.

Walking up to the landing at Obushkon

Walked up to Obushkon on Wednesday to see if my boat is still at the landing. It's only about 1.5km from the landing at Edith.  If you go up that way wear boots and have some repellent with you.  Here a a couple of pics.

Fishing this morning

  Out to see if there would be some Whitefish around and guess what I caught a Catfish, first one for me in Gowganda Lake.  I have heard of others recently too.  This one was about a foot long.  I was temped to try and cook him but I sent him back in to his buddies as I had some fish already.

Ice may be out tomorrow, maybe

The ice has taken a beating after yesterdays storm.  Wind was very strong put the power out for more than 24 hrs.  Lots of trees down all over.  The big spruce in the back of my yard has been shortend about 16 ft.  Today the wind from the north has pushed all the ice down to the north part of the lake. At the edge it is just grinding it up, it may be wide open tomorrow.

Yesterday it just about rained and spitted all day

Got out yesterday for a few more pics some of the water flowing under the bridge at the highway, really starting to melt now.  Went into Burke Lake where the water end's up next.
 Then off to Miller Lake which still has lots of white ice, while walking around the bush there I found a old, old home.  It used to have a bit of cellar and all that's left is a bit of frame work poking out of the hole.  Some logs were used too.

Diabase Lake

  Out to Diabase Lake yesterday wandered around the edge to get our chairs we cached in a tree.  No more walking on the ice so it was a little harder to get to them.  Took a few pics along the way.
  Today more snow on the ground, not on the road.  Tomorrow is supposed be nice maybe.
