Ahhhh, we made it! The weather has finally taken a turn, the ground is slowly warming and there are not too many patches of snow left to melt. We turn the lifeblood of the Lodge back on this weekend... later than usual...the water! Then it is "open-season" and we can stay up there any time we feel like it. We will have Easter at the Lodge in just two weeks. I am so glad that Easter came late this year. The daffodils may be up a bit but the hopes I had for full bloom will fall short by a couple of weeks.
