Here at the resort, there are a few jobs we do every season that are sort of like book ends, defining the end of one season and the beginning of another. Pulling out the docks is one of those tasks. We wait as long as possible to pull them out though, as pulling them out too soon kills the grass where they are set for the winter. Dad and I are grateful to have them in as it snowed another inch yesterday, giving everything a fresh white blanket and making winter even more apparent that it’s here to stay. With temps in the 20’s to low 30’s, the small ponds are starting to freeze over, and it won’t be too long and the lake will have a coating of ice.
